Saturday Centus 170 Meets Picture It & Write, 21 July 2013: It Begins and Ends With a Song

I fell into a ring of fire…

The song rang out from some station that had been left on in an office. I’d taken shelter in the bank just before the asteroid hit; I saw the air-raid shelter sign but don’t think anyone else out there knew what it meant. All that was before their time. Now that it was all over, I could still hear the song’s words ringing.

I was tired and the bed seemed like a good idea; now I’ve floated out into this water that I can’t drink. Maybe the world will get right again. Someday. In the meantime, I have to survive.

I’m reading “Lucifer’s Hammer,” a book about a comet that hits earth; my Christopher talked about it some years back and we found a gently used copy on Amazon not too long ago. Before he could get back into it, I swiped it. After I got in a few chapters I was hooked.

So, it stands to reason that, with such inspiration, I would be able to come up with 107 words, especially when both SC and PI&W offered such great supporting material! Click each below to add one or more of your own.

  1. First, thank you so much for getting that song stuck in my head lol. I need my book worm friends to move back close to me so I can swipe books on my TBR list from them.

    I liked the unforseen consequence of going to bed. No one thinks they’ll wake up in a pond.

    PS I really want that bed.

    1. I hope so; there is actually too much water! The comet head broke apart and the pieces have hit in various places; they were large enough to cause multiple tsunamis in various oceans…

    1. 😀 Thanks, Cie! I enjoy trying mash-ups…if you and the good folks at Undead are ever taking guest posts, feel free to let me know–would love to write a piece for you all 😉
