Tourists were the same universe over. Loud, rude, obnoxious… One and the same really. Inappropriate behaviour, too much alcohol and parties long into the night.

On this one planet, the locals had had enough.

The automatic hoverbus took the diversion as signposted and was not seen again.

As did the next.

And the next.

Not many travelled to New Shangri-la anymore.

Hardly surprising.

Lot of divorced singles. Well… they didn’t know they would shortly be divorced… or missing…

That was the thing about New Shangri-la. You didn’t know you were going there… until you were not there anymore.

Holiday anyone?

  1. I sensed a kind of smug revenge and, well, envy. I know a lot of people who deserve to take your holiday – how do I sign them up?

  2. So that’s what dark matter is! Fun tale, Laurie

  3. I’ll stick to a bit of sun on the beach, thanks!

  4. I’ll send a few candidates your way but will stay here, thanks.

  5. Note to self: stay away from your buses. Good story!

  6. I’m cancelling my booking right now!

    Here’s mine!

  7. Ha ha, only you could make such a chilling story sound so cheery!

  8. I think the New Shangra-la’ians accomplished their desired effect. No more tourists! I know I would go. Note to self: Don’t be too annoying when I travel. =) Fun story!

  9. Dear Laurie,

    The beach or a camp out in the woods are sounding better all the time. 😉 good one,



  10. Laurie, I think your muse and mine were in cahoots this week 🙂
