Stream of Consciousness Saturday : Press

Press the button and let’s see what happens. It all started out so simply, no pressure, just the four of us messing around.
Well,after we depressed the button all hell let loose. There were lights and alarm bells ringing. It was scary and honestly deafening!
The huge metal door flew open at an alarming speed. What was there for us to do but enter. At first it was dark but we could see lights ahead. We made our way slowly towards the light, then the door slammed shut with a resounding bang behind us . Mercifully  there  was  silence
I remember thinking well there is no return we must just go forward. So  we pressed on.

Eventually  we  reached  a  portal  with two exits . One marked  yes and  one  marked  no . We stood there in  the middle of  nowhere wondering  which way  to  go. There  felt like  there was no  way  back  with  the  door locked  and  there  was a  force- field in front  of us. It had to be one of  the exits here either side of us. We looked  at  the yes  door  and  there  was  nothing  there to help us  make a decision  so  we looked  at  the  no door . Hanging  by  the  the  no  door  there  were  four  pressure suits , boots  and  helmets. There  was a red  cupboard  with a  note on the  door  saying  “Don’t  forget  your  jet packs   and oxygen.

Well I ask  you,  the four of us  all reached  for  the  suits. Once  suited  booted and  helmeted  we  helped  each other  with  the  oxygen and  the jet packs. We were  ready, what a day  this  was turning  out to be!

We all moved to  the  door and  red  the instructions  : Big red  letters said press.

 

This  is  part of  Linda G Hill’s   Stream of  Consciousness  Saturday.

The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “Press.” Find a word that starts with press-, ends with -press, or use “press” as a word all by itself. Have fun!

    Fun Willow! I love science fiction and I have never seen you write it before – fantasy, romance, life, poetry, etc, but not scifi. You are good.
