light-pillars-5The light in the sky was brighter than a star and it was not a plane. No one knew what it was but they knew it was coming their way.
Anthony sat on his front lawn with his binoculars spell bound. His wife Anthea   brought him out a blanket and a flask of hot chocolate.
Soon the local and national TV  stations arrived to see the light which was now hovering over the village. It was referred to as the Annestown’s Anomaly.
Anthony was the first to spot the light and he was very pleased with himself.  It had been his next door neighbour Ted who had alerted the media. This strangely annoyed Anthony he really did not want all these people with their lights and microphones buzzing around.

At around  1.50am  the  anomaly  began  to  glow  and pulsate, the  media  all became  very  twitchy  and  excited  Anthony  suddenly  felt  he  knew  what  was happening.  It was then the  anomaly  started to pulse more  and  began  to  make  a  strange  clicking sound. Anthony  and Anthea  drew  closer  together. In a flash  the  light  was  gone  and  with  it  Anthony  and Anthea were  gone too.

None of  the media  or  press  noticed  that  Anthony  and Anthea  had  disappeared in fact  none  of  the  neighbours  noticed  their  absence for  weeks.  

Anthony and  Anthea  were  blissfully  happy  seeking out  new event horizons  and  going  where no humans had  gone before!

    Excellent take on the prompt and a fascinating tale to go with it. I really love tales such as this….especially when it has a good outcome for so often the unusual is depicted as bad whereas why couldn’t it represent good?
