Umbrella

Written by Jacob Ibrag

He looked to her as the clouds above threatened to end peace.

‘We need one day!’ She pleaded. ‘Please, let us warn the others before

you spread the acidity.’ Laughing among each other, the clouds rejected her

request and countered with nine hundred seconds, ‘you’ve had your time, more

than we should have ever given. Save your skin before we revert and rain on your

existence.’ Diverging into his eyes, she promised that she wouldn’t abandon their

people, ‘go West, warn the elders. If they won’t listen, focus on those that will.’

Taking off his backpack, he clothed her with it, ‘no, I’ll stay behind. There’s

an umbrella inside with at least one use left, it should keep you alive

until you reach the city’s end.’ Stealing a kiss, he quickly ran

in the other direction, ‘we’ll meet again. Remember

us, remember where you came from.’
