**As first mentioned on March 21st**
For the next little while I’m going to be busy building up a new backlog of material to post on Fridays, amidst the other stuff I’m working on, so for the next few weeks I’m going to satisfy myself to simply post a drabble a week. For you writers out there, feel free to use these drabbles as prompts toward writing something bigger and better, and if you care to share what you’ve written, please send me a link so I can check it out. 🙂
No Freakin’ Way
His breath hoarse through the overused oxygen filters of his spacesuit, Jeremy stepped with caution into the enormous superstation. It was quiet…he wasn’t sure if that was because there was no one left, or that the station’s atmosphere generator had failed and so there was no air here.
Spying a splatter of blood on the wall, he guessed the former.
“Hello?” he called, his voice mechanical through the suit, though audibly frightened. “Anyone there?”
A high-pitched, sickeningly inhuman shriek replied from one corridor over.
Jeremy turned and sprinted to his ship as fast as his cowardly legs would take him.
