Another bit of fiction - this was for the 75 word challenge, theme "Departures". The title is shamelessly nicked from a computer game.

Papers, please!

“Arrivals” is full of joy.
“Departures” … more of a mixture. The excited among the resigned; the willing among the unwilling. I watch over them, check their documents, wave them on.
New worlds wait at the end of their journey. For some, a whole new life. A few linger in the lounge.
Once, I watched boats cross the river. Now it’s gleaming spaceships through the dark void. My job is unchanged. May I inspect your ticket?
