The Sound of Silence

The Sound of Silence

He had been a storm. Thunder followed him. The booming collapse of singularities as he banished them and all their chattels had been enough for him back then. Vengeance was less satisfying than he had imagined in the heat of his rage. All he had now was eternal echoes of thunder in the empty streets.

55 words

This story was written for Lisa McCourt-Hollar's 55 word challenge.
It received an honourable mention from judge Jeff Hollar, who said -
Its exceptionally difficult with such a minimal word count to craft a complete story. That being said, Nick did the next best thing and established a coherent and continuous overall emotion/tone that was truly ominous. Spooky!
