Top to Bottom
by Kevin G. Bufton

It took Rory three sets of windows before he regretted the jump. Actually, it wasn’t so much the jump; not even the drop. It was ground the ground, rushing up to meet him…

Passing through him…

There was an instant of terrible pain and then nothing, just falling–accelerating at 9.8 metres per second every second. Down… down.

Deeper and down.

There was nothing to see as he dropped through suffocating mass of the Earth, but there was plenty to feel. He was getting warmer–no hotter.

Too late, he remembered his bible studies…

…remembered the fate that befell suicides.
