Everyone believed it could not, would not, actually happen.
But no-one was taking any chances, and as discreetly as possible, they left.
No panic on the streets.
No uncontrolled mayhem to bar or mar escape.
They just…………… left.

The road was deserted.
All was eerily silent and still.
No wind in the trees, no rustling in the hedgerow.
The air was heavily charged with expectation.
It was strangely beautiful and surreal.

The golden glow in the sky was deadly.
The sound and force of the strike would follow in seconds.
It was the beginning of the End of the World.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
