We Ran Out Of Time

PROMPT: For the Future

To whomever finds this letter,

I must apologize on behalf of the people of Earth. We ran out of time.

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2017

She began to smile back. She asked the others if they knew who he was. He was new in town and her friends worried about this stranger and his unnerving smile. A week later, he asked if she would accompany him to a movie alone. She...
