The Apartment #280


The room remained silent for a while. Harry reached for Tisha; they hugged. Tracey had stood with Rick, hugging him tightly, now she turned to pick up a waking Timmy.
The quiet woman smiled, bent closer to Tracey and kissed her on the cheek. Then she began laughing.
"It's over now, isn't it?" she laughed, turning to face the alien. "Your experiment? It's finished."
This study is complete.
The room disappeared.
Daniel's apartment was as they'd remembered it: a place for everything, and everything in its place.
Except they all felt out of place, as if they shouldn't be there.

    Blimey Drew, you're going like a good-in on this series. I promise to catch up, but I will need to devoted a whole day to it!

    Yes, having a bit more time recently and I want to see it finished soon. Originally, I thought this may be 50 or so drabbles, but it's like Christopher said a while ago, they take over :)

    They do, don't they? Still loving this. I'm having to catch up every few days because I'm still working like a madman as well as preparing for my vacation next weekend.

    Am I correct Drew in thinking this might be your 900th? Sorry I missed congratulating you!
