Sixth Drabble of Christmas - Nativity by Nav Logan


We're halfway through the Twelve Drabbles of Christmas and for this sixth drabble Nav Logan provides a different version of the nativity:

Nativity by Nav Logan

Many moons ago, a bright light shone in the heavens.

Far, far away, a group of shepherds watched their flocks by night, and gazed up in wonder at the bright star.

Somewhere nearby, at the outskirts of the nearby town, a man led his pregnant wife into a cow byre, for her waters had broken and there was no room at the inn. 

Soon, the cries of the new-born filled the night sky, drawing the shepherds down from the hills. A shepherd’s life was indeed boring.

Three wise men stayed far away, as they had seen the deadly meteor’s approach.
