Well, here we go. I'm nervous like an elephant in a laboratory filled with mice. Lemme have it tho - I need to know if this is good, or even at
best...okay. Enough talking, now with the pasting. Hope everyone enjoys
Crash of Thunder
Running amidst the crowd at the annual town fair, bare feet splashed in the wet grass. The young boy was happy, content, and exuberant. His
friend was less enthused but maintained a weakening smile, her youthful cheeks giving from constant work. Every so often a drop of water ran down
their cheeks and sometimes their arms and their legs. Both of them were wearing shorts and sleeveless white shirts on a warm summer’s night. During
their run of joy and uncertainty raindrops started to fall once again. A crash of thunder and flash of lightening hit the ground in an immense moment
of confusion. Without even stuttering they carried on their mission to the end. End of the line, end of the road, end of eternity is when they will
stop spending their time together. There was nothing wrong anywhere things were perfect or so they would be at the end.
Suddenly a clearing up ahead, and everyone became dust. What had happened? Where did everyone go? It will not matter, it affects them not. In the
moment they lived and lived for this moment only. They were alone – Barefoot and soaked. Lovers and haters, everything and nothing, all wrapped into
the deep field of vision as seen by the galaxy and everything in it. With the world that had apparently vanished there remained nothing left in the
world for them but to be together. Holding hands, conquering fear and uncertainty.
A couch. Sitting alone in the middle of the field. A couch decorated with vines and flowers. A couch, which looked so comfortable to the human
eye, one cannot resist the temptation. They walked over to it, holding hands, looking for some explanation to why it’s here. Simultaneously reaching
out with their hands opposite of the held ones they touched the cushion of feathers and pedals. Deviant lightening from miles away glimmered in the
raindrops on the natural furniture. Again simultaneously they rested on the seats and cuddled together. She fell asleep while her friend kept watch
for any clue as to what he ran to. All the way here he had an idea of what it was, though he was still uncertain at the finale. What does it mean?
Why are we here? It was a run of a lifetime and from fear to joy to fear again and doubting the final product.
All of a sudden in the blink of an eye and a gasp of the breath the couch shot upwards. Up and up, up, and further up the seat rose to the sky.
Thumped through the dark storm clouds and up to a sunny day hiding behind them. The sun was bright, the clouds from up top looked like mossy gardens.
Lacking full understanding the couch stopped on the surface of the clouds. Both stepped off and walked through the garden. While they walked they
smelt the beauty radiated from the new ground on which they stood. Continuing the walk they felt an immense joy never before felt! They could not wait
to return to spread the word.
Ahead, lay a mirror on the ground, reflecting to their eyes the blue sky from the opposite angle. Still holding hands they walked over to the
piece of home decor turn garden decor. A quick peek down into it, they now stood immediately over top – For them to behold. Still baffled, though
not as strongly, their dilapidated bodies in shambles from the crash just hours ago.
There you have it, again hope everyone enjoys. I read it over myself for the first time in a couple months, it doesn't seem too bad but that's just
me. If you're confused about anything just ask.
