Who Are You? (Flash Fiction) Prosery

He said his name was Jophar Vorin, that he was looking for his long lost brother. I showed him a map, though it only seemed to confuse him more. “Where was Sakria and Euplar?” he asked. The funny thing was… we truly believed him.

Finally the Berlin authorities took Jophar; we never heard of him again — except in our endless musings ever since. I have to say it, I think the most enlightening speculation was written by you, my dear friend: “We look at him through the wrong end of the long telescope of Time.”

  2. So glad you joined us, Francis! I love that you based your flash fiction on a true story. So much mystery in this world of ours. Maybe he was a space or time traveller. I agree with Ingrid, your story reminds me of Kaspar Houser too.
