Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts Friday Fictioneers. Each week Rochelle chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.
A cruel day
She was on a rescue mission but there was no-one left to save. With a heavy heart, she surveyed the scene of devastation.
A voice shouted, “Search any buildings still standing.” Knowing it was hopeless, she moved to obey the command.
Kicking aside the ashes, she picked up a charred fragment of paper and read the words, “See, the day of the Lord is coming – a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger – to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.” *
Dropping to her knees she cried out in desperation, “That day has come. Do it now!”
* The quotation is from The Bible (New International Version – UK) Isaiah 13:9
