Long Delayed Results


by Denny E. Marshall


The phone rings, it is a message from the Tokobana Universe Games. Announcing a meeting next week and all javelin, disc, and ball throwers are required to attend. Jarhune is happy the call finally came. Many have called the Universe Games committee suggesting these events be held in another theater.

The day arrives and the athletes wait to hear the results. Jarhune thrilled he will receive a silver medal. The committee will decide on the new recommendation later. When you hold these events in space with no gravity and wait many years for it to land, they understand the frustrations.



THE END
