Seven Days (New 100 Word Story)

A new drabble (100 word story) written by me has been posted in the Indie Bargains newsletter - visit to sign up for the daily newsletter of  free and bargain Kindle books.

Seven Days

On the first day we ignored the signs in the sky that the prophet had foretold.
On the second we gazed in wonder at the red fire as it brightened the night sky.
On the third day we despaired at the doom that shadowed our future.
On the fourth day we prayed for release from this promised end.
On the fifth day we panicked when our prayers remained unanswered.
On the sixth day we calmed and accepted our impending fate.
On the seventh day we all cried out and now a new day has dawned and we are not here.
