365 Drabble Challenge #6


The world was over.

Matter, Time, People. The phages devoured everything.

Matt wasn't that lucky.

For some reason, the phages couldn't affect him. So he watched as they consumed more and more of the world around him until all that was left was the dining room floating in the void.

He didn't know who the child at the table was, but he called her Annie, after his own daughter.

She moved ever so slightly again today, Matt noted. A frisson of excitement hit him.

Eventually she'd finish blowing out the candles, and then he'd be able to see her smile.
