Joanna’s story ~ Daisy
Vast fluffy pillows of white rest beneath me. Above, I see no limits, no horizons. I’m free, unencumbered.
This must be what flying is like. I feel no pain now; just peaceful detachment.
I hear an echo – more like a memory – a voice calling my name. The sound is hollow, as though it doesn’t really exist. Or perhaps it’s me who no longer exists?
It’s so beautiful here, I think I’ll stay. Why go back?
Then I remember. Daisy. Love and hope warm me.
So. It is not my time yet. I return to my life.
Ron’s story ~ 24792: Arrival
I thought they said planet 24792 was water based – that’s the fluffiest water I have seen in all my 920 planetfalls. Hang on, what is that darker stuff over there? It is looming up very fast and has black hot fluffy stuff coming from the top. Better slow, and wake Captain Alt-Q.
‘Junior Officer Crtl-6 to Captain Alt-Q, please respond. You are needed in the control pod. —- Captain, please respond quickly! I am beyond my assigned knowledge level.’
‘Ctrl-Q, on my way; why was I not summoned sooner?’
‘It was all so pretty, Sir!’
