The turbulence

Maya had recently shifted to the quiet neighborhood by the creek with her 7-month-old infant.

The rumbles of what was likely to be a full-blown storm , shakes her from the meditative cradling of the baby in the dimly-lit bedroom.

In the darkness of the night , all she could sense was the whistling wind , the fanning trees and the eerie loneliness.

As Maya rushes to shut the swaying window , she notices a lone magically “live” lamppost , highlighting a silhouette in the dark .

Like a bright streak of lightning , Maya sees the silhouette suddenly turn, donning a familiar yet faraway smile, resurrecting images of a remote, obliterated past.

With a rapidly palpitating heart ,  Maya waits for a miraculous lull.

This story was written for Six Sentence Stories at  Zoe’s uncharted , the cue of the week being “shake”.  Thanks to Zoe for hosting the challenge.

  2. It the moment she saw the silhouette standing there, my heart began to pound along with hers. I fear this is not someone she wanted to see outside her window, and perhaps her attempt to escape him has failed. Now I want to read what happens next! Great story, Moon!!
