The Aftermath

Today's prompt words in bold.

Jerome climbed from the storm cellar. Extant buildings, crippled and pale, greeted him. The cathedral spire was among the missing.

He remembered the sounds of his new wife's sexual utterances mixed with the siren's warning. Now there were sobs intermingled with silence.

He squatted and rocked side to side. Under the rubble, a telephone rang.

    1. Yes they were, Kaye. Sexual was the hardest to incorporate. I realized I'd left it out of the first draft. :)

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

  2. With your vivid imagery, you've created a chilling scene here. Kudos on the great use of the prompts.
