This story has been one of my favourites to put into audio form. Originally part of the Write Club project, this short is about a scientist stranded on a spaceship that is locked into a terminal descent into the Earth’s atmosphere.
She is reminiscing on what brought her there and remembering some of her favourite things about being home.
It also has one of my favourite last lines of anything I have written;
I hope it looks like a shooting star, as my scream is lost in the ship’s roar. Then I will burn out into the night and into nothing. I hope that unknowing lovers and children will see it and wish for great and wonderful things upon my death.
Even now, I still love the idea of the story. It’s a pretty sad one and it kind of came out of nowhere in my brain.
I really hope you like it.
