Lid of the Day #1831

With a rumble and a low hum, the lid of our tiny box was lifted, revealing an unfathomable light burning beyond. It was far too bright to see who had pulled open the lid, but we could hear their susurrant voices coming through.

One said: “They aren’t quite done yet.”
Another replied: “Give them five or six more millennia.”

The lid was closed, the light faded, and our lives went on, but since then I’ve been aware of a constant, distant ticking sound – like an alarm clock, or an egg timer.

a feeling so startling
