Drabble: Anomalous


It’s decidedly the wrong side of 4:00 am, and I’d like to be back in bed. I know that won’t to happen, though. I accept a cup of coffee from the twitchy grad student.

“So you say we got a signal back.”

“That’s the way it seems.”

“That can’t be. All the theory says Peterson shouldn’t be able to communicate from the other side of that anomaly.”

“Why don’t you come hear for yourself?”

I put on the headset, so I don’t hear him coming around behind me.

“The anomaly is hungry,” he says, as the club comes down.
