The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
One Brief Moment
by Lynn Ruzzo
Life brings light to this once desolate place. They’ve built their fragile structures upon the land I once scorched. The lifetimes they’ve spent creating, but the blink of an eye to me. I watch them laugh and cry, birth and die, with nothing more than idle curiosity. They’re so proud of their accomplishments. They think highly of their own existence. They believe they’re at the top of the food chain. I think it’s time to reveal the truth. With one glaring stare, a simple thought to expel them from this Earth, their screams will ring out for one brief moment before the entirety of their history is erased.
