He’d noticed the numbers, they all had. It had been an annoyance at first. Days passed and it diminished. No one in the office mentioned it yet they all had spotted it. One by one the numbers on the screens reached 00. One by one the programmers disappeared. Where had they gone.

    We’re the programmers connected to the count down? Or was it just that they were disappearing and the numbers were marking it?

    Wow! That’s scary. There was a movie a few years ago where people had a countdown clock embedded in their arm. That would freak me out. I’m better not knowing when my time comes! ❤️

    I like this, am a bit scared because of it, but geeks do sometimes seem to vanish…
