This year, I’ve decided to participate in Flash Fiction Month. My goal is to post 31 flash fiction stories in the month of July! Without further ado, below is day 1 of 31. :)

“Mission control, do you read me?”

Radio static crackled in response.

They banged their fist against the beeping, flashing control panel. “God, or someone, anyone, please answer me!!” A flimsy plastic overlay crumpled under their fists.

They huffed and flopped back against their seat. “My first solo mission is a complete disaster,” they dragged their hands down their face.

Behind them, the creaking of a door sliding open disturbed the tense silence. They whipped their head around to face the source of the noise, eyes wide.

“Ria, why aren’t you asleep yet? You have school in the morning!”

Thanks for reading!
