My Breakthrough

PHOTO PROMPT -Copyright-Roger Bultot


Looking at this vehicle reminds me of my breakthrough in science but still I feel devastated.

I was successful in breaching the parallel world in that vehicle and it sent me here; a place where I have not been able to find even a single evidence of human life after a month’s search. I keep visiting places and wandering on the streets but it’s all in vain.

For some reason my world’s science does not work in this world refraining me from going back. My wife’s photograph is all I have with me.

I’m all alone in this world.


This 100 words fiction is written for the photo prompt of Friday Fictioneers.

Anmol that truly sucks. I have often feared this very scenario as I plan to do hop parallel world someday like sliders. Maybe he an return using the photograph the Christopher Reeves did in Somewhere in Time.

That is certainly a win/lose situation. I think I would trade the scientific breakthrough to return home. The loneliness would be too much to bear.

Great idea. I love how bleak it is. I'm just not sure about the word 'refraining' - it doesn't seem to fit with the rest. Perhaps 'stopping' would do.

Scary. This short story reminds us how much we depend on other people.

Anmol, My first comment seems to have disappeared so here's a second one. Good story. You've described lonliness well. I hope he finds a way back. : ) ---Susan

True. Emotions and Feelings are something we can't run from even if the end result is a history maker.
