Missing person

13 August 2017

‘So, you’re a John Doe, but alive?’

‘I suppose so.’

‘And you remember nothing of your past?’

Flashes of burning buildings, a dark tunnel, a woman in a mask…. ‘Nothing that makes sense.’

He nods, seemingly satisfied, and holds out his hand.
‘Welcome to the nut house.’

13 August 2317

A woman in an oxygen mask heaves the door closed behind her. She gazes fearfully at the other two.
‘Nothing has changed. Project Reboot has failed.’

A heavy sob escapes one of the scientists. He was their last chance.
In despair, they glare at the faulty machine.
