Today's #flashfiction Stubbornness

“Come with me if you want to live.”
Dr. Frankenstein* #quote

Tomorrow is the gaming club I go to at the college. It's good that the school allows club participation despite me being on medical leave due to my disability. It's been fun there. I've only had a few seizures there and only fell out of a chair once. Anyway onto the flash fiction!


           A massive descended on the forest. Normally a storm meant nothing but good, life giving rain. But an angry bolt of lighting managed to light a tree ablaze. The rain did not manage to put out the flames before it grew large enough to sustain itself. The animals ran from the new predator in the woods, the fire could consume them faster than anything else. It also ate the animals on the top of the food chain. It ate the mighty bears and scattered the normally proud wolves from their packs. The birds fled from their nests along with the rodents and the insects buzzed into the sky, the smoke often choking them.

          The forest perished into ash, the animals moving to other woods for salvation. In a month however, a few flowers already sprouted up from the ash. Nature tends to be stubborn about living.
