Dark clouds rolled across the sky to mix with the white fluffy clouds and leave an opening of sunshine in the eerie quiet. The wind picked up and the trees began to bend. Flashes in the sky, closer and closer until the house began to scorch, lightning had struck the roof and now the flames began to engulf it.
No words were said as the trucks pulled up with the hoses ready to soak the inferno. The house was a lost cause, proof that nature could not always be tamed.
The word is lightning and the word limit was 125 words. This post is only 90 words.
