I knew that I had died. My body was lying in a widening pool of rainwater and blood, the casualty of a hit and run. I hovered above the road and surrounding fields.
“So this is what death is. It’s actually pretty cool, but what now?”
Even though I no longer had eyes, I was able to blink out the scene. When I perceived it again, I saw a coastal city and a large swathe of ocean.
The blue-green orb of Earth looked just like a fortune-teller’s ball.
A trillion stars.
“Interesting! But what now? Where to?”
Author’s note: I banged my head hard once on something and momentarily was looking down on my own body.
