She took a deep breath – it was only a matter of time, you know. She had been through this so often there was no longer any anxiety, any sense of where she would find herself, of what kind of world she would find. She allowed her mind to reflect on the past years, not holding on to any one image, just accepting them, and moving on.
She listened to the ticking of the clocks in the background. As it got closer to entering the portal, she felt herself becoming less substantial, less in physical form.
Time to move on!
