The War Of Gog And Magog
The eagle had grown deathly still and its keeping its beak shut was much worse than its blood curdling shrieks. Jonina stood up on her tip toes trying to get a better look at the eagle perched on the tree. The animals was a still as the car parked under the tree. Eitan bent down and said, "Do you want a closer look at the birdy?"
"Yes, big brother. Please?" she said tugging on his shirt sleeve.
Eitan croutched down and let Jonina climb on his back and helped her get on his shoulders. When he was certain that she was secure he picked himself up off the ground. Ochria smiled. The stars and moonlight bathed Eitan and his family in it's ghostly white light. The eagles predatory eyes glowed like ambers.
"Hi, birdy. I can see you. Can you see me to?" Jonina said curling Eitan's hair. Eitan winced when she accidently pulled a strand of hair off his scalp.
"Sorry big brother."
"It's ok Jonina, I was supposed to be getting a haircut soon anyways," Eitan said.
"You got a hair cut thre days ago," Zeev said. Eitan looked at his brothers mane of dark hair. Now he's the one in real need of a hair cut. Strange whooshing and roaring sounds could be heard coming from the north. Where they air planes? Travelers passing by on vehicles? Or just the wind?
What wind? The night was as breezeless as any. It was chilly, but not windy. "Namir what is it?" Ochria said grabbing a hold of her husband. Namir wrapped an arm around his wife and held her close.
"Zeev, Eitan, Jonina come to your parents side please I don't want to be apart from you when they get here," Namir said his voice full of emotion. This is really happening! The attack is underway!
"Daddy? What do you mean?" Jonina said sniffling. Eitan felt a tear moisten a small area of the skin on his right arm. He looked down at and saw a tiny shiny droplet of water on the upper side of his forearm.
"Jonina, whatever happens do not be afraid," Namir said. Jonina began to tremble all over and became heavy on Eitan's shoulders. He croutched down and told her she could get off.
"No big brother I'm scared," she said refusing to get off and gripping clumps of his hair in each of her tiny fists. Zeev walked past Eitan his feet shuffling in the dark.
"Jonina get off your brother and come here, I want you by my side," Ochria said. Eitan was amzed by how authoritive yet compassionatly motherly her voice sounded. Jonina instantly let go off Eitans hair and slid down his back. When she was off he jumped to his feet and took a spot next to his brother who was to the right of Namir.
"Are you afraid Eitan?" Zeev said. Eitan looked at him uncertain about what to say. The sounds became more defined and there was no more doubt about what they were. Hundreds and hundreds of super sonic jet engines were rumbling from the northern star moon lit sky.
"Do not be afraid for that is doubting and shows that you are of little faith," Ochria said. Yes, mother. Zeev patted Eitan on the back and then shoved his hands in his pockets. Eitan took a step forward from the line and looked at each member of the family. His father looked ten years older, not age wise, but intellectually like he knew the outcome of what was bout to take place. We all know how it's going to end... at least this part.
Jonina clung to her mother tears streaming down her little brown eyes. His mother was holding the crying girl close to her whispering, "Everything is going to be ok."
"But why mommy? Who is coming?" Jonina said.
"Shh, shh Jonina just close your eyes." She did, they blinked open and closed to let out the tears that were still coming. The noise of the planes was now a multitude of jumbled echoeing booms.
Zeev gasped. "There they are!" A miles wide formation of fighter, bomber, and stealth planes was coming in fast. His heart only had time to beat four times before they were already flying overhead. The covered the sky like a cloud of blocking out most of the stars and moon. Their combined engines all screaming at once tearing his ear drums to shreds.
He looked up in both fear and awe. Some were flying low others were tiny dots in the sky. The fighters were equiped with machine guns and missiles, the stealth air crafts which were flat like sting rays didn't have any visible weapons, the bombers were armed with massive bombs. Some of the larger bombers were carrying unussually massive warheads.
"They have nuclear weapons!" Zeev screamed. The planes were all going by so fast and yet they kept on coming their ranks never seeming to diminish in numbers. There must have been thousands coming in! Most of them were noticably Russian air craft. His little sisters crys were almost completely drowned out by the roaring birds of prey. Namir hugged his wife clothes to him and wrapped another arm around Zeev. Eitan heard him say, "Eitan, come stand next to your brother."
His voice seemed to be coming from quite a distance. Eitan turned around and with a shock realized he had taken a number of steps forward away from his family without noticing. He took two steps toward his family and then a massive tremor knocked him off his feet. He landed hard on the ground his elbow digging into the dirt. He let out a groan that he could not hear.
The ground continued to tremble under him so he didn't even bother trying to get up. Something behind him crackled groaned and crumbled. Eitan knew what that noise was. The house was gone. He looked up into the sky and saw that it had become a green and black. The moon and stars were no where to be seen. The clouds swirled like a supernatural sky cyclone. After one last tremor Eitan got to his feet ignoring the throbbing in his side and elbow.
Suddenly the green and black sky was lit up with millions of red and orange dots which were descending as fast as raindrops. Fire and ice fell from the sky hitting the ground with sizzles and thuds. Explosion from above lit up the ground. Eiatn walked backwards keeping his eyes to the scene in the sky. He bumped into one of his family members and stopped. "They're shooting at each other?!" Zeev said.
Dozens of planes that had their wings torn apart by the fire and ice and were falling toward the ground spewing flame and smoke. Fireballs erupted in every direction and debris flew high into the air as the planes continued to crash one after the other. Their bombs exploded along with them sending a plume of dirt and rocks. Planes were randomly firing off missiles and shooting their machine guns at each other as the storm of fire and ice continued to rain upon them. Many great bursts of orange and red flames bloomed like fiery flowers under the green and black swirl of the sky.
"Get back!" Namir said tugging on Eitan shirt. Eitan and his family all backed up as a colossal fighter plummeted down in their direction spinning out of control leaving circles of smoke behind it. The jet smashed into the earth nose first exploding and showering the area about five hundred feet in front of them in flaming chunks of shriveled up metal. A circle of leveled dirt had formed around the crashed jet.
Eitan was astounded to see that the eagle that had called them out into the open was still in the tree seemingly oblivious to what was going on in the sky. Bright white lights flashed in the sky, and then monstrous purple and red fiery mushroom clouds appeared in the sky expanding faster than the speed of the planes. Many of the planes were instantly obliterated by the nuclear bombs that were exploding in the heavens.
Night became day and the air itself seemed to have become liquified as a turbulance wave swatted the planes out of the sky like flys. The great tsumani of super heated wind sent a wave of sand roaring toward Eitan and his family. Eitan could not move a muscle. His family was as equally paralyzed as the flaming war machines fell from the sky.
Hudreds of planes crashed at once sending fountains of flame from the ground. Thousands more hurling through the air being tossed by the tremendous power of the nuclear blasts. Bombers, fighters, and stealth air crafts crashed all around them. One spun on it's side and its wing dug a ditch in the ground not thirty feet from where Eitan stood before being desentergating into dozens of metal pieces.
Just as it had been raining fire and ice it was now raining planes! Even those that were not hit by the turbulance wave fell straight down from the sky like boulders. "Its the elctrical magnetic pulses! Their planes have no more power!" Namir shouted as the planes slammed down around them. Some no more then twenty feet away.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Their eyes were being supernaturally protected aginst the blinding lights of the explosions. And the heat and explosions did not so much as flutter a hair on their heads. As this was all happeneing fire and hail continued to patter down around them. Not a single hail stone or stray bolt of flame coming within three feet of them. When the last of the invaders met their end the supernatural green and black swirling storm clouds vanished. The moon and stars returned as God flipped back on the light switch of the world.
