Saffron raised her arms over her head, signaling lightning and thunder to erupt throughout the heavens with sound and lighting both dazzling to the eyes and ears of the hundreds of millions watching the spectacle with awe and a trace of fear.

The tips of her fingers sparked, igniting spheres of energy cascading by the hundreds, filling the lower reaches of the sky with miniature suns, nearly blazing in a myriad of colors.

The goddess waved her arms full and wide, causing dozens of glorious rainbows to light up the horizon.

In the breathtaking finale, she brought tornadoes of whirling electricity to funnel the spheres to the tops of the rainbows while the lighting syncopated with the heartbeats of those present.

She prided herself on her work and held her head up high with dignity, since who else but Mars’ wife could bring in the first millennia of the old gods’ return to power and announce her place among them?

Friday Fictioneers: Historical Fiction

History in the Making

“Do you think it will last?”

“What?  The fireworks?”

“No, I was thinking about the country.”

She stepped closer to him while waiting for his reply.

“You shouldn’t worry about it so much.  We pray and God is with us.”

“Will He always be?”

“You shouldn’t even think like that,” he scolded, his voice rough and his eyes darting around.

She looked at the child wrapped up in the quilt.

“I am … sorry.  I worry for Alexander.”

“I know, but stop worrying.  We will always be strong and safe.  After all, it’s 1776 and we have come so far.”

Namaste,

Scott
