John Hankow: Looping

Recommended Posts

He had done this six times.
"Who are you?" Captain Gunner finally voiced a question he had been keeping in his mind since a random woman had suddenly appeared on his viewscreen. The Captain was alone, he remained on the ship whilst the rest of the crew left for shore leave. 
"How can you not remember me Captain?" The mysterious female answered back, insinuating that they had met before and that the Captain should be fully aware of that fact.
"Why would I? I've never seen you before." Captain Gunner believed this to be true, his mind couldn't find anything related to this woman. Her curly brown hair and ocean coloured eyes didn't seem familiar at all. He continued to focus on the unfamiliar face as she answered back.
"Alice."
That rang a bell.
The Captain stood up off his chair and calmly approached the viewscreen, the high pitched noises, that were common ear fodder on the bridge, played in the background as the Captain got closer and closer to the woman in front of him.
"Alice… Gunner?" It was a shot in the dark, but one he believed would hit.
"Yes" she replied.
Everything now made sense. The Captain was definitely not a forgetful man, he remembers everything and everyone, but someone he purposely forgot was his daughter, a baby that didn't make it.
All logic flew out the window as tears trickled down the Captains face, the impossibility of this situation didn't matter to him anymore. 
A broken man laid face down on the floor, banging his hands against the floor of the bridge whilst crying his eyes out.
"How could you let me die daddy?"
He continued to cry, until he couldn't bear it anymore. 

Bang

He had done this seven times.
