Expire

by Alex Gounaris

I floated in space, heading for an endless journey through the darkness until I reached my end, my demise.

My suit kept me warm, but I felt so cold. I panted; the only sound, forever.

Everything was dark except for the KB-11 star in the distance, at the edge of the universe. My last sunset.

The debris of my spaceship passed by slowly. Fragments of my old life.

I tried to grab something and hold onto it, but everything was just out of reach. Like my future.

I closed my eyes tightly and prayed for a miracle.

It didn’t come.

Since the early days of his life, Alex would always come up with funny and epic stories to pass the time, as all children do. But this habit followed him later on, up to the point he discovered roleplaying games which were the tool to unleash his imagination and story writing. In no time, he was drafting up countless stories, spending hundreds of hours playing, writing, creating. That was the moment he decided taking his first steps in novel writing. Dozens of short stories and three ghostwritten novels later, Alex is focused on writing his own novel, hoping to bring the joy of the roleplaying games to the hearts of his readers.
