100-Word Scifi: "End of the World"

Every week, I write a 100-word story based on a random word. Well, I've slacked off for a couple weeks working on other projects, but I'm back. This week's word is "earth."

End of the World
by Nigel G. Mitchell

Edward Park burst into the office of his project lead, Anna Maynard. "We need to shut down the facility. Right now."

Maynard frowned. "Why?"

"The inversion resonance bomb. It works in reverse of a neutron bomb. Instead of destroying all living things, it'll destroy all non-living things all over the world."

The bomb exploded. Edward felt the ground evaporate beneath his feet. He felt himself falling, but never stopped. The world vanished all around him. He watched a slow descent of trees, cats, dogs, people screaming in an airless void, a sphere of life floating in the blackness of space.
