January 21, 2015 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a 2 a.m. story. Crazy things can happen after the bars close down, even if you never go to the bar! You might, drown in a pile of snow or wake up to find a black bear in your kitchen. Well, those are northern Idaho 2 a.m. stories. What’s yours?
Ok, soooooo … how do you drop a bombshell safely? You wait until 2am, when the moon is so close to her fullest moment that time is really becoming of the essence, and you tell the wizard intending some full-moon magic something that rocks him to his very core … then you sit back and watch as he processes it. Sneaky, huh? Well, Francesco doesn’t really have a large speaking part in the drama of Earth Magic, so we’ll allow him his perfectly-chosen moment, just this once.
“What if the crucifixion and the resurrection were kidnapped and badly reworked fictions put about to control the world order?”
2am, and Mother Moon is perilously close to full point! But Francesco’s words make me look at him with eyes that burn; it’s as if the scales fall from them, and I’m seeing him for the first time.
“What if the crucifixion and resurrection were indeed events in a much greater plan, the details of which have long been lost to all but a select few … a Plan that’s in need of Someone able to reject the false creeds?”
Images speak for themselves this week, I think you’ll agree!
