This  is part of  Sue Vincent‘s  Thursday photo  prompt.

Rules  and Pingback here.

 

dark-dawn

Tinged with violet

Gold rays of  the new born day

Beautiful yet bleak.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ava opened  her  eyes  and  looked  to  the  horizon, her bones  ached , sleeping  in the car  was  not  good  for  anyone. The  view  that greeted  her  lifted  her  spirits. The  dawn was  creeping  in  from the  horizon. Violet in hue , gold tinged  it gave  the  road  and  the tree line  a magical  feel.

Rubbing her  eyes  Ava  promised herself  she  would  never,ever sleep in  the car again. Taking  a moment  she stepped out of  the car  and stretched, the  sky  was hypnotic  it  called her  and  she was  too tired  to argue . Moving  round  the car  she stood  and  breathed in the  raw  morning  air as  she drank in the  dawn sky.

Thinking of  home  she  had  the urge to get back  to  James  and  his  comfy  bed and hot lips. She  turned  back  to the car  only  to be  frozen in the lights of  the huge lorry. She had  no where  to  go  the truck took her off  the  road  and  threw her back down with a thud  before  flattening  the life out of  her.

Looking  down at  her  battered  and bashed  body  Ava  thought  what a shame  she  would  not taste  James again…………… she  turned  and  walked  up  into  the violet  sky towards  the  golden opening.

The  truck driver  felt  the bang, he had not  seen her but  he  was  so  shocked  to find her under his wheels. He looked up into  the violet  and  golden dawn, he  thought he  could  see something in  the  clouds, just  for a  second. He looked  at  the sky  and  then pulled out his  phone  and  dialed 999 knowing  as he did it  was already  too late.
