Sci-Fi with a Twist Story List
Missing - A man's daughter disappears mysteriously into thin
air. Where and when will he ever find her again?
My name is Arthur Gamble. I’m a
science fiction writer, not a great one actually, but a writer
nonetheless. I had one hit in my career that was picked up for a TV
series. It was enough to keep me going and provide a little nest egg
for my family. When the TV deal came through a few years ago, I was
on top of the world, but recent events have turned my life from
hopeful and positive to despair and anxiety.
That’s why I’m writing this book as I go along on my investigation.
What investigation, you may ask. Unfortunately, that’s a question
that I wish I didn’t have to answer. It would seem that my life has
taken a turn much stranger than anything I’ve ever written about in
You see, my own daughter, Amy, has been mysteriously missing. She
was only fourteen at the time, and that was two years ago. The
police believe she ran away from home, but I know better. I was
there when she disappeared and so was my wife.
We were shopping for clothes one day at the local mall. Well, they
were shopping, I was just hanging around, making the best of it,
just biding my time until we all went to the movie that was
scheduled to start in about thirty more minutes or so. My wife,
Heather, and Amy both went into the dressing room so Amy could try
on some clothes. I was right outside pacing back and forth,
impatiently as usual, as I tended to do, when I had gotten stuck in
the middle of a shopping trip.
It was about five minutes later when my wife came out screaming,
“She’s gone, she’s gone!” Of course, I had no idea what she was
talking about, so I gently grabbed her and not so calmly asked,
“Heather, what do you mean? Where’s Amy?” I took my hands off her
arms and ran inside the dressing room. There was no one there,
nothing but clothes.
Again, I asked, “Heather, where is she? I was standing out here the
whole time, I know she didn’t walk by.”
With a look of shock, Heather could only say, “She just disappeared,
Arthur. Just disappeared into thin air.”
Of course, what else could I say, but that it was impossible? My
wife hasn’t been the same since. She hasn’t gone off the rails or
anything, but whenever our daughter is mentioned she gets a blank
stare, as if she were looking off into another universe.
