For Better or Worse [Flash Fiction 2 of 3]

For Better or Worse

Night StarsThe stars above, different. Not hers. She laid, bedroll disheveled around her legs. Struggles awash in a waking mind. Home, Earth was gone, too far to reach had it still been there. The little shuttle, the captain who lost her ship. Three months; food, water…priorities. Then the traders’ vessel, the convoy.

They accepted her. She found a niche. Eventually.

Beyond the clearing, stuttering amidst the treeline, a point of light led shrouded pilgrims.

She peered above to the stars. Few choices before, not many more now. Better or worse –  worse was dead – asylum’s granted… making this home.
