The Apartment #297

by

The world turns. Darkness and light trade places, as it does in everyone's life.
Above, blue skies shine, either naked or dressed with cloud. Beyond those skies the colours diminish to tiny pinpricks, our only visible acknowledgements of the violent birthing and deaths of colossal stars or the incalculably vast energies of supernovae.
From down here, nothing is seen of black holes: though, like love, the evidence is unquestionably visible.
Nothing is seen of dark matter.
Or dark energy.
Or the vast and uncompromising multiverse that only now do we appreciate may not be as empty as we first believed.

    Phew! And about time too! Well, that's it folks. Great respect and thanks to you for sticking with it all the way through. I hope you enjoyed the ride - I'm not sure I did, winging it all the way through was far harder than I thought it was going to be. Oh hell, what am I saying, of course I enjoyed writing it, as Terry Pratchett said "it's the most fun you can have on your own!". Thanks again for sticking with it and for your comments and support, believe me it's greatly appreciated. Cheers! :)

    Actually, I'm not sure the great Mr Pratchett was right about that, but hey... ;)

    Congratulations, Drew. It was a truly unique and well-written story. I'm still trying to work it all out in my head, though. Great job.
