“The Third Switch”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Three little switches were on the contraption. Keith looked at the first one and flipped it.

All of the lights went out in the house. He flipped it back – nothing.

When he flipped the second switch, the lights came back on.

Smiling, he flipped the third switch and waited; nothing happened.

Scratching his head, he walked back upstairs to his wife staring out the window.

“What’s the matter, Sweetheart?”

She simply stared and began to shiver. Keith followed her finger pointing toward the large window.

New York City was dark.

Keith began to worry, perhaps, it was not just NYC.

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?
