“Wake up! If we’re not on that transport and out of Earth’s atmosphere before that hits, we won’t survive the shockwave.”

“Huh?” Confused, I rub my eyes, squinting in the dim light. Following the direction of his finger, my eyes widen at the large object partially eclipsing the sun.

Leaping to my feet, I stumble as the ground shakes from the impact of a smaller meteor. I’ve been dreaming this. How am I here, seventy years in my future? This is no dream. 

One thing is certain. If I want to survive, I need to be on that transport…now!

    I too wonder how you are 70 years in your future. I won’t be there to see it; that’s for sure.

    Oh! Another sci-fi. I love sci-fi stories. Earnestly hoping to write one soon. Nice story, Carrie.

    This may be something that everyone else already knows, but what does ELE stand for? A very intriguing story, Carrie!

    Carrie, I enjoyed reading this. It’s very intriguing and I was wondering about whether it was real or if your protagonist was imagining or daydreaming it, until I read your comment to Susan. Fascinating story.

    Run, Carrie, run! Don’t miss that transport. Well done, you’ve captured the sleepy waking and then realisation, perfectly 🙂

    So intriguing Sci-fi stories, Carie. But because I read your response to Susan, that is where I was enlightened. Hopefully, all the people who abuse mother earth will be brought to that dream by your protagonist to make them aware of the possible tragic consequences of the world.
