The Second Coming

An apocalyptic flash fiction

The sky had glowed golden. A beam descended from the clouds, golden and glittery. Some were terrified, others were in awe. Everyone was certain that they had seen God. He had reached through their city and blessed them all. 

That didn’t prepare them for the sky to then burn a radioactive yellow and for the clouds to blacken and descend on them all. The clouds zipped down until they touched the ground, destroying everything in their path. Some tried to hide in their cellars, others simply wailed helplessly in the streets. 

Now everyone was certain. They had seen the Devil.
