“The end is nigh!”
“The end is already here, you numbskull.”
The sky darkened further, fiery debris whizzing through the air akin to an angry goblin juggling a thousand fireballs.
“No, no. It’s still nigh. We’re not dead yet.”
A juggling fireball zoomed over Josh’s head, setting his hair alight. He screeched and dunked his head into the broken water jug that lay conveniently within head-flinging reach.
I raised an eyebrow.
“You sure about that?”
Smoke sizzled from the waterjug and Joey whipped back upright, shaking what remained of his hair back and forth like an overzealous pup.
“We’re not dead yet,” he repeated, a grin firmly fixed to his face, as though the bright red bald patch on his head meant nothing.
Another fireball whizzed past. I stepped back and rummaged through my bag, finding my little pocket mirror. “Check it out,” I smirked, throwing it to him.
His eyes widened as he stared at his reflection. Then he smiled and calmly said, “It’s a good look. I like it!”
My first post-NaNo post! 😀 And Joey is back!! He’s such a go-to character. I love him.
I got absolutely NO sleep last night. Bogans filled the streets, screams and revelry ensued, it did not end until 2 in the morning and by that time I had no chance. So I sat on Partiko and was social for a bit whilst occasionally closing my eyes and trying my darndest to get just two minutes of sleep.
Climbed out of bed. Wrote this. Now I’m sitting here waiting for my son to wake up. Today’s going to be a looonnnggg day!
Today is Day 406 of @mariannewest’s five-minute #freewrite challenge. The prompt for today is – the end – and this is what I came up with in my blurry-eyed state! 😀 You can find the challenge behind these blue words.
