'Epilogue' by Emma Corcoran

Only the airport lounge survived. 

Area: 14m2

Population: 25.

Remaining resources: one vending machine, twelve ‘Hunger Games’, three Heat magazines, four litres of Ambre Solaire.

The air-con mutters, ‘Emergency! Emergency!’.

But we go on waiting. Souvenirs of hope.

  1. This is my favourite kind of flash. So very few words, and a heavyweight story just crouching below the edge. Love the black humour
