Anomaly : The End
The birds must of sensed the Anomaly first because they suddenly left the area. No bird flew within a twenty mile radius of moors. The lights could be seen by day and night and though at first they went unnoticed eventually after all the animals left and all the flora and fauna died we finally saw the lights.
What they were we did not know but people thought they had been there at least a month , well we believe it had been much longer than that. News, unusually for news, spread slowly. Looking back I think it was fear of the unknown, everyone thought if they ignored the lights they would go away.
The lights did not go away in fact they grew, slowly at first but now six months on they have spread from Britain right across Europe and Russia,Alaska, Canada now they are heading toward the Americas. Nothing seems to affect them nothing seems able to stop them.
Yes the scientist and military have been busy testing the anomaly but they cannot test light can they ….. it is just colour it is transient it cannot be caught, measured or,as it appears stopped. Amazing isn’t it every government in the entire world is cooperating with each other…. All wars have ceased in an effort to solve the problem.
So the beautiful lights are moving around the world encircling us all with their ethereal hues. All the birds are gone, the animals too. Nothing grows anymore and we are all loosing our humanity. The government did try to keep order with the army but as soon as the stocks in the shops ran out anarchy spread like wild fire.
It is everyone for themselves , it is unbelievable there are bodies rotting on the streets people are dying of malnutrition, disease , thirst and plain simple violence. It is awful we are terrified to go out.
All those pictures of people trapped in wars, refugees struggling hand to mouth,thousands of people in Africa starving it is happening here in the so called modern world , though the way it is now that all the fuel has run out, apart for a very few, we may as well e living in the stone age. No “Feed the world ” when it is so badly needed!
I mention “The very few”, those with money enough or deemed worthy of saving have been hidden away somewhere to ride this out. I personally do not think the earth will recover from this. If it does my group and I do not want to be around to see what is left.
So I have left this very brief account of what has happened. Tonight we are going out to watch the lights and party with the alcohol and food that we have managed to accumulate we have not much strength left and we are sure someone stronger will kill us for our stocks before morning.
Suicide I can imagine you are thinking as you read that last paragraph , well yes but we have had enough there is nothing left to live for . The lights will soon have killed the entire planet. I have to laugh something so beautiful has brought us to this. Beauty has slaughtered us , well no we have slaughtered each other .
