Twins

They said we shouldn’t play with the exotic particles.  Something about matter streams and cascading singularities and colliding realities.  I might be mixing some of that up.  We couldn’t let all that stop us. We had such important things to do.  After all, it isn’t every day you work out a way to instantly move from one place in the universe to another.  Risks?  Pshaw.

Then they started showing up.  First just one for each of us, then more, and more, and more.  Soon, we even started forgetting which one of us really belonged.  After all, they were us.

We should have listened.

FLASH! It’s Flash Friday, the day when Seeking New Earth authors write short stories up to 1000 words (“flash fiction”) or 110 words (“microfiction”). Both are sure to instigate the imagination and stimulate the synapses. Did you like what you read? Want to explore the story some more? Or maybe you want to try your own hand at some flash fiction?

    Interesting.
