Drabble: The Visitor

The Visitor

The visitor arrived at three fourty-five, local time, in a public square in Vienna. He descended along a beam of light from cloudy skies, to alight in the center of the small crowd which had formed as he descended.

His speech was uninteligible, though linguists across the world tried their best. There were various theories surrounding his arrival: A visitor from space! The second coming! Time traveller from a distant future or past!

And then he was gone, just like that, and we were left to decide what to make of it all.

Sometimes it feels like a dream.
