First of all, happy account anniversary! I'm OOT™ , and I'm honored to review your work.
My Thoughts: This is a good idea for a 55 word story. The subject matter was interesting, and you managed to tell a rather complete story with the limited word count. I know how difficult it can be to tell a complete and coherent story using so few words, and I think you did a good job here. I particularly liked the title and the route you chose to go with the story. This would be a good story to expand upon in the future!
My Suggestions: When you write a 55 word story, you have to make every word count. By doing so, you have to omit words that add nothing to the story. For example, in the second sentence, you say, "She braced herself for the impact, but there was none." This could be stated as "She braced herself, but there was no impact." You have saved two words but have gotten the same point across. In the following sentence, you say "Upon opening her eyes, she found that she had not landed, for there was no ground beneath her." This could be just as easily stated as "She opened her eyes to find there was no ground beneath her.", and you would save several words in the process. Also, to make the story more personal, I would change "she" in the beginning to the character's name.
Overall: This is a good story that would be much better and more complete if unnecessary words were omitted and replaced with stronger content. I look forward to reading more!
