I’m having a bit of a tough day today, my normal storywriting process has been interrupted. Here’s my contribution to Fictioneers.
“I cannot believe it,” Harvey said, glumly.
“I know, I didn’t expect it to happen either,” Harvey’s wife, Marina, replied. She was still in shock.
Harvey sat on a stair in the house of his childhood, a house destroyed by a tornado.
“Dad told me that the weather wasn’t going to come this way. He’s a weatherman, he should have known!”
Marina gave him a squeeze on his knee.
“Your dad is human, he didn’t betray you. Tornadoes are erratic, they’ll destroy things not even close by if they so choose.”
“Doesn’t change anything. I feel betrayed, my life is basically over.”
Marina just shook her head, as she walked up the stairs to the now open building.
