The prompt – Emptiness


Prose Challenge – Write a 50-word story inspired by the image above.  What is it? A blank screen edged in static? A chalkboard with no writing on it?  The strange view out of a window, perhaps from a spaceship?  You tell us.

Bonus point for including any of the following words: emptiness, void, or abyss.


By Neel Anil Panicker

It had been three hours since he killed his best friend and the feeling of emptiness that had crawled into his being simply refused to leave him.

The deafening silence mercilessly tore into his heart; her dying words tearing him asunder, “Kill me if you want, but make it fast”.
