Summer Time by R J Allison
It was one of those timeless summer days when the past feels present; one of those moments of irrational conviction that this day, this summer evening, doesn’t just seem like one from the half-remembered endless summers of childhood, but actually is one – a perception that all such special, magical evenings are in fact the same evening. A vision of the thing flickered at the corner of my mind’s eye; a theory, almost, scratched softly at my understanding. I turned the last bend in the familiar path, stepping out of the woods, and it was so.

Pointless Platypus by Sasha Brown
If a platypus walked in, it’s unlikely that anyone would be surprised. At least, no one would be more surprised, after hearing the conversation prior to its entrance. Perhaps they would be more surprised, but already surprised thus, their resultant surprise would be higher than without the conversation, if the platypus simply walked in. Perhaps their destiny was to reach the aforementioned surprise, which would be fulfilled on the platypus’ entrance without the conversation. It remains, however, that due to the conversation that happened (not the platypus that didn’t) everyone in the room – lacking a platypus – was surprised.
