Confusion broke loose. Screaming, shouting, running.

“This is the end!” Someone shouted amidst the panic.

“They’re here! They’re taking us all with them!” More shouting.

Nonsensical conclusions swirled around the crowds that ran everywhere and nowhere all at once.

“How do you know that this is the end Mister?” A small child squeaked lowly in the chaos.

Silence stole the noise. Stillness stole their panic.

“How? How?!” The old man seemed to lose his train of thought. “…”

Every person, now still and quiet. Eyes glazed as they were filled with an atmospheric numbing shot.

This was surely the end.

Author's Note

Micro-fiction. One step further in the depths of telling a story in very few words. It's interesting how many people, competitions, judges, editors, writers and anyone who has an opinion don't all agree on the same word count.

If you have been here before, you're probably tired of hearing me go on about how intimidated I used to be by flash and micro-fiction. So, I won't bore you with that. Cheers to all of you who are also stretching your wings!
