Internment is about a city that floats 30,000 feet in the sky, with virtually no means of getting to the ground below. In 100 words or less, write a piece of flash fiction about a person who would live in such a city. Your flash fiction can be told in any tense, and any perspective. It can be serious or silly. It can even be a poem!
Each night since my sixteenth birthday, I have dreamed of falling, escaping, from the corner of the city into nothingness. But before I hit the ground, I awake in a cold sweat. Below us could be anything, could be nothing, could be everything that I have ever wished for in an enigma.
I climb to the top of the highest building and peer over the edge. Falling from Internment is impossible, but falling isn't. To jump, soar, to be free, would bring a comforting peace that is almost unexplainable.
Someday ... I will know the rest of the world, even if I die trying.
