Dystopia Is Real – Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers -3/14/17


No one knew the real date the world ended because it was done with such stealth. The government wished it could do things this way, but in truth only one organization had this skill. The proof was that no one claimed it was true. Banks kept lending money, people kept getting married, having children and going to their jobs.

The world could have known. Would have if Jacob Smithson had finished his ninety-one mile trip from Scranton to Allentown, PA. He had installed the global warning system there, nineteen stories deep in the earth. It had sapped the entire fortune made from his grandfather’s San Francisco gold mine, but Jacob knew there had to be a way to let the world know.

Almost 75 years later his old car still rested off the two lane road where the Chapman Group agents forced him to stop. His skeleton was scattered for miles in every direction so no proof remained. Now the world was continuing on oblivious to their fate.

  1. Kind of reminds me of this:

    And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.

    -Luke 17:26-27


    1. Yes James. We have no idea when Jesus will return. I think it would not matter even if we did. Some don’t care, some don’t believe and others would just try to bargain for more time.


  2. Amazing story! He knew the world was going to end but the government stopped him from letting anyone know. Now they go about their lives as though nothing is going to happen. Chilling! Great story!
