Drabble #18

The slow spin gave Lee time to think. Any faster and the capsule will miss the target. Any slower and they’d have to abort. The dying star came into view via a porthole-shaped monitor. The capsule itself was solid and sensors created the image of the outside. 


Lee wondered about that during launch. They searched “Claustrophobia” and wondered why they had never known the word. Their life was the cargo bay, rolling in and out, loading and unloading, the sky always simulated. Lee wondered if even the capsule were true. They searched “Recalibrating” and turned toward the impostor star.
