The data received from the interstellar telescope is clear. We are not alone. We have found extraterrestrial life in our universe.

There is only one problem... Even if we could travel the vast depths of space and make contact, by the time we arrived... it would be extinct.

The planet orbits a single star, it is the third planet of Eight. We have called the planet E3-RTH. We will monitor its demise and learn from it what we can. The science must continue, our survival depends on it.

Flash Fiction Challenge: 100 Word Drabble – Breathe 

Breathe

Fear set in as the cold surrounded my face. There was no way out. I had just moments before I would need to breathe and welcome my mortality. Accept my fate, with a final water-filled breath flooding my lungs uncontrollably.

The panic would come. It always did.

Three…

Two…

One…

I thrust out my arms trying to hold on to him. Stop! Please Stop!

He responded with a tightening grip, forcing me further under.

The water stung my eyes as they bolted open. My final dampened screams remained unheard. This time he went too far…

My body sunk like a stone.

This was a Flash Fiction challenge set by Chuck Wendig. The task was to write a work of fiction in just 100 Words!! Apparently it’s called a drabble.
