100 words

These flash fiction pieces really are fun.

This one, I really want to see what happens after the story stops at 100 words. Might have to consider going on with the idea, but I've got a couple different directions I could take it...

Here it is.  The prompt was:  When she opened the door, she wished for...

When she opened the door, she wished for him. She’d been gone for too long and everyone she knew was dead. That’s what happened when you traveled faster than the speed of light. For her, it had been five years. For Earth, it had been decades. And now that the debriefings, press conferences, and tests were done, she was finally free to return to her home.

The place she had once loved more than any other. But now that he was gone, it wouldn’t be the same.

The bright green eyes that met hers had to be a trick.


So where would you go with this?
