Yesterday, beautiful blue-eyed sky!

Today, an autistic sky burns. Putrid. Vile. Threatening.

Yesterday, all was perfect. A comforting sun smiled. Sauntering hand in hand, we brimmed with love. All was so right. We were longing for marriage, a cottage and a bright future.

Today, the very atmosphere is cracked. Suddenly, the heavens spit fiery rocks. The waters boil and roil. Knots form in the land, which demonically form gaping maws of fissures. Frantically, I scream your name. Where are you? Where are you?

“Cut! Great film shot!” the Director bellows. 

 As the lead actor, I walk off the film set.

A wonderfully descriptive story, Margarida, with a great twist at the end! Love the expression ‘Blue-eyed sky’. And this definitely has all the ingredients of a terrific disaster movie!

Hello, Margarida. It is very captivating. And I didn’t see the twist in the end coming. Very well done.

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance.
