That's why it's called a short story.
Well, that's not really fair, since short stories can be anything up to 7500 words. The articles I've written for Star Trek Magazine have tended to be more around 800-1500 words, so if this story is anything like the same page count as those, then it would be pretty short even for a "short story." (Short stories under 2000 words are sometimes called "short-shorts," while stories with word counts in the hundreds are known as "flash fiction" these days.)
