My time may have ended, but I will not simply fade to time. Legends and champions have walked my halls and we have sailed the stars, and for that I will ever be thankful. My bones now are empty, and my heart lays still, but do not shed a tear for this passing. Instead, I take solace in the knowledge that my children and their progeny will live on, and our name will echo across the lips of all the galaxy.
For such is the duty of the name Enterprise.
Entry #1 for this week’s Five Sentence Fiction from Lillie McFerrin. The theme this week was “empty”, but that doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.
I hope you all enjoy.
