The Ladies of Horror
Tears and Lightening
by Julianne Snow
You know she’s angry when the lightning comes. You may not be sure what you’ve done wrong, but the reverberating sound of her thunder shakes your bones, turning your knees into jelly. Wrath, like you’ve never seen destroys the world around as you quake in your hiding spot, waiting for her to find you.
Because you know she will.
Her tears hit the ground in torrents, washing away edifices and infrastructure, not caring of the destruction or the death. The closer she gets, the louder she becomes, the wail of her wind screams at you, the pitch driving you insane as it scours the surface.
With a crashing rend of triumph, she finds you, her vengeance fully directed at you now. There’s nothing you can do but submit to her will. She lifts you in her embrace, tossing you around like a rag doll, breaking you with no remorse. You fall back to the ground, tossed there like garbage, your last moments filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of her.
Mother Nature can certainly be a bitch.
