Flash Fiction #555 -- The Path (Drabble)


The aliens warned us of a path we should never take among the stars, a course utterly inhuman where we could not survive.

But we were humans and took it as a challenge. We pointed our ship toward the blue sphere that dominated the sky. None had found a path around it. None who went in came back out.

Three of us went in.

We found no terror but rather a place of surreal exquisiteness never imagined by human minds. Threads of luminescent blue led us through realms of beauty -- a gift of some unfathomable artist.

Is there a god?
