Floating through space an orb of light glows, it is not a star it is a ship inside is a man exiled from his home planet doomed to float through space forever. He sits staring outside through the small window in the ship's control room. He had been there for years in his small ship. He could not land or dock on any other ship or planet.

Floating through space an orb of light glows, it is not a star it is a ship inside is a man exiled from his home planet doomed to float through space forever.

He sits staring outside through the small window in the ship's control room. He had been there for years in his small ship. He could not land or dock on any other ship or planet.

His ship was the mark of the exiled. The ship had enough food and drink to last for 50 years and he had been on the ship for 49 of those years.

With food running low he only had enough food to last for 2 more days. He could popily stretch that out longer but he did not care to. He wanted to die.

He did not want to starve to death, a slow painful way to die. He was going outside. He walked slowly and dutifully through the small hall to the airlock.

He disregarded the space suit leaving it where it was and got in the airlock, took a deep breath and opened the airlock and walked out into space.
