Do Not Get High

by Denny E. Marshall


Howard can barely make out the planet. He is in his spacesuit floating in space. His oxygen supply limited. Maybe they do not realize he is missing or help is on the way. Soon the planet is not visible at all, as he continues drifting helplessly.

He has entered the event for years and is always careful. It is different on his planet if not under the dome. You move as fast as you can go although you have to be cautious about the height. One of the perils of having a mountain bike race on a low gravity planet.



2014 Denny E. Marshall
