#VisDare 11 – Whorl

Prompt: http://anonymouslegacy.blogspot.com/2013/03/visdare-11-whorl.html

Simon lifted the umbrella close to his face and concentrated. His voice was barely a whisper as he breathed “Show me. Show me the past that should have been.”

Every other time the umbrella had taken him somewhere, the journey had been instantaneous – it Flickered, and they were gone. This time, however, he could feel it happening. The world dimmed slowly, then brightened again, and then the air started to spin. He realized that the Flickering he’d always seen before wasn’t a flashing of light, but rather reality whizzing by at speeds too fast to perceive, the lights and darks of the world blending into a chiaroscuro. The spinning accelerated, and the edges of his vision began to dim as he found himself pulled into a patternless whirlpool.

And then out of the chaos came order. Even though he was sitting in a dark room, Simon saw trees, and a pond, and a building in the distance. As the image cleared, a large red and grey sign on the lawn became distinct. On it was a seven-pointed star.
