Danger in the Night

May 14, 2010
By Anonymous

The silence is interrupted as a loud BANG fills the night air.
People try desperately to hide,
hoping that by some chance their lives will be spared,
but time is slowly turning against them.
Then, as quickly as it started, everything turns still.
Not a sound is heard,
not even a whisper piercing through the dead silence.
People run frantically from their homes,
unsure of what to expect.
They’ve never seen a gruesome event like this,
at least not in their town.
They’ve heard of places where this would be a common occurrence.
They never listened to the warnings of the upcoming danger.
The families will be forced to pick up the pieces or they won’t be able to move on.
