You pause chopping for a moment and look out the window, up at the night sky. You can’t help but feel disappointment when all you see are stars.
You realise with sudden clarity that the stars haven’t gone out. Something is blocking them out.

This was great Hannah, thank you! When I wrote the prompt I wondered if anyone was going to take the UFO/monster angle, and you did it so well! There was also the deeper message of the passivity of the crowd too — it all pulled together so well.

Thanks so much for sharing! And I hope to see you in the next prompt.
