Israel was the first country to invest in the new teleportation technology. Rows of Halos appeared, bright neon circles suspended from wires.
Problems were soon reported: people would unwittingly be swept up through a Halo and be deposited seconds later in a different part of the country.
Then the disappearances started, people sucked into the air were never seen again. Theories of parallel universes and time travel abounded.
The Halo Transportation System was dismantled, apart from one neon circle on the corner of Ramban Street, kept open in case any of the disappeared should one day find their way home.
Written as part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The idea is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt (above).
