Flash Fiction – Floating (Stories on a Theme “Control”)

In the last moments of his existence, Trenlti felt himself in awe of the vast expanse of space open up before him.

He tried to reach for the rope, inches out of his grasp. But he couldn’t reach it, and so he just floated away, tumbling in a vacuum with nowhere anchoring him to reality.
