Thursday Taster 53: Parallel Slip

Hello and welcome to a new Thursday Taster, the day when awesome writers all over the blogosphere come together to give you tasty bits of their last fiction. You can find the list here.
I'm not sure what happened but this slip to a parallel universe seems a bit funny.

"Just caught it this time, at this rhythm we are going to lose," someone said in front of me and she started to run toward someone else with a different T-shirt. We were playing, handball and I was goaly. I was never in a team, I was never good at any sport and I was probably out of shape and that other girl was running straight at me and my team was never to be seen. I could see exactly why I was here, my other self was a damn idiot and wanted to avoid the ball at all cost. The ball hit me right in the face and hit the ground in front of me before I could lay down on it. I had it, I had it.
"Frederique are you ok? Frederique wake up!" Jonas' little panicked voice said.
I was laying on the ground and he was pushing tuft of hair away from my forehead. I blinked again to make sure I was totally back.
"I'm fine," I said.
"You went back to the spaceship," Jonas asked grinning.
"I went to a bloody handball match and they threw the ball straight to my face," I said.
Jonas giggled.
"Hey, that's not funny. Let's get away from here before someone call an ambulance or dad," I said.
"Or your mum," Jonas answered.
"They don't have her number," I said looking around.
"Jonas, before I blacked out, you said something, did you notice anything special," I asked standing up and dusting my pants.
"Your eyes, it's like you were looking at something through me," Jonas said.
"That's very strange, you are the first person who ever noticed something like that," I answered "If you see that again just let me know."
I didn't know how long I had blacked out but Jonas's teacher was observing us through the window and she gave me a chill. I took his hand and hurried up away from her.

  1. Chilling, glazed eyes. I want to learn more, and if she can remember other things. Great taster

  2. It doesn't look good for her when she realizes the teacher was watching when she blacked out. You are revealing more insight about the character with the time she blacks out and is playing handball, her aversion to sports. Why is there an urgency for them to hurry? Need to know more when the story continues to unravel.

  3. Like Naomi said, pretty chilling, and I'm also intrigued to know more.
