Follow the Road

I wrote this drabble story for the Holy Worlds Christian Fantasy Forum's challenge to write a story from a picture. It was inspired by Jordan Miller's picture "The Road".

The heavens were changing: Darker days and brighter nights, stars growing in size and number. Everyone saw it, including Nodin.

Some said it was the end of the world. Some said a new age was dawning. Nodin’s dreams told him judgment was coming.

He had once sinned like the rest. But no more. The Holy One spoke to him, telling him to flee and follow the road.

So he did.

Then the stars fell.

The cities were consumed.

But he, and the others who forsook their sins and took to the roads, were safe.

It was time to rebuild.

  1. That was very interesting. I found "It was time to rebuild" an intriguing sentence. Well done. =)

  2. Nicely done. Could make a good book...

  3. Wow! There's a "heart-in-throat" sensation! Put me on the waiting list for the book. :)
