Pure serenity. My eyes slowly adjusting to the warm sun spreading its rays across the bed of the sea, glittering as it hit its surface. A cool draught of air whips swayed rustles through the tips of delicate palm trees who spread their arms to infinity. Dense emerald leaves attached to the branches creating shade for small grains of sand scattered across the ground.
Heaven on earth.
Overseas lay the unapologetically urban cityscape spread over the once green land filled with chance and opportunities.There were no trees or city planted blooms, just monoliths of concrete soaring out of the sidewalk in an exact grid pattern. At night it was magnificent, lit up by hundreds of street lights appearing as delicate stars dropping down to earth. As by day smells of smoke from cars would fill the air, vanishing as they lifted. Sounds of car horns and engines filled the air as other civilians hurried, all going their own paths.
Complete silence. Not a single word to be heard for miles. Not a single cloud in the azure bright sky. The untouched golden sand glistening as the burning rays of the sun hit its surface. Seagulls swoop down from the sky determined to catch there unsuspecting prey. In the distance, unnoticed the once cowardly clouds shaded the sun, darkening the sky. Mother nature was preparing for battle ready to reclaim what was rightfully hers. Whispers of wind hurried through the air trying but failing to raise alarm. The palm trees, once brave and strong shook in fear, as they knew what was about to begin. Something was coming. Something unimaginable and bigger than expected. The watery gates of hell flew open. Armies of trees were defeated, crashing and falling to the floor. The town was overwhelmed as electricity blackouts and shattering of glass had people living in the fear of the unknown. Waves crashing violently onto the shore, defeating anything and everything that stood in its way. Screams could no longer be heard. No tears, No voices.
Not a sound to be heard for miles. Gargantuan pools of doom stood high guarding the reclaimed land. Complete silence filled with pure devastation and victory.
