100-Word Fiction: ‘How Will We See?’

In the future we will see
Everything in three dimensions.

What?

The robin whistling
The mud underfoot
The long journey home
Hands in gloves

The cheers at the bar
The chiming bells
The turning of a page
The plans being made

The mildness of the air
The perfume of a fir tree
The warmth of brandy
The kindling smoking in the grate

The heights of privilege
The yawning traditions
The swells of pride
The chasm between rich and poor

A mother’s slow decline
A father’s decrepitude
A child’s burden
The darkness and the light

Almost as if it were real.
