Friday Fictioneers: Searching for the Sky

A second Friday Fictioneers post in as many weeks? Wow, maybe I’m actually getting back on track.

Stranger things HAVE happened.

Many thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting, and a very happy birthday to her!

Searching for the Sky
            “Gramma, stop teasing! Ev’ryone knows there’s no sky,” five year old Jack stated firmly.
            “Back on Earth, there was,” Emma persisted gently, tapping his nose with her pointer. It was attached to the only hand she had left.
            He planted his hands on his hips. “Then why isn’t there one here?”
            “We’re in a space station. Here, we have homes above us.”
            “Will I ever see the sky?”
            “Perhaps.” She pulled him onto her lap. “Maybe you’ll discover humanity’s next home.”
            “An’ then I’ll show you the sky!”
            A small smile lit upon Emma’s wrinkled face. “Yes. Yes, you will.”

  1. Great story. What a concept to think that you couldn't see the sky. How sad that would. Inventive take on the prompt. I really liked this.

  2. Hi Rochelle,

    Thank you! I don't think I've read those, unless I read them back in middle school, in which case I just don't remember them. 🙂

    Take care,
