Eclipse

Post by ROU Killing Time » Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:16 pm

Andy stopped in his tracks, dropping his burden to look up at the darkening sky.

His co-workers continued on, oblivious to the growing black crescent that was eating away the sun.

As totality neared, the organization of the harvesters shattered into pandemonium.

The hole in the sky became a nova.

Then the sun fell to earth, turning Andy into a cinder, as the smell of burning flesh filled his olfactory senses and screams shook his antennae.

“Billy!” Mrs. Parker shouted from the back patio, “Stop torturing those poor ants or I’m going to take that magnifying glass away for good.”
