Piano In The Dark
by Miles H. Rost
Shirley plopped her bag on the table.
Coming home from a hard day of learning at school, she was going to be happy when she finally could watch “Sailor Moon”. It had been a while since she had a day to herself.
The sky grew dark all day, and it was nearly pitch black outside. She turned on the TV and not even a minute in, she heard the familiar buzz of klaxons and red screens.
She buzzed into the basement and took shelter and waited.
The lights went out.
A steady roar sounded.
