Flying into the Milky Way

This story is a response to the Challenge posted on Friday Fictioneers, which is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. A story inspired by the photo prompt, a beginning, middle and end in just 100 words or below, making every word count. Here goes my attempt, hope you guys like it.

Flying into the Milky Way

The Prompt Image

Alex loved the idea of flying. He always dreamt of flying all over the world.

He did fly, well to a lot of places, and his job being a astrophotographer, it became more fun than ever. But that one fine day…during a transatlantic flight, it changed his life.

He waited for a perfect shot out of his window, the cliché airplane wing shot. Then came the moment he was eveready for…one click and he was in the middle of the Milky Way.

  1. Cool! I like space and space photos. An astrophotographer, huh? Pretty awesome stuff. Oh, and I saw Alessandro’s photos. They’re brilliant! Just to fly at night and be able to focus in on the stars is so wonderful! I loved it as a kid, I still love it now. Great story, Shaktiki!

    Five out of five Snickers bars (we’re out of Milky Ways, otherwise I would have given you those). 😀
