The End of the World
Last night I dreamt the end of the world.
It all started as I was departing the house of a close friend, Ben. As I
bid him goodbye to return home I looked around. As I looked, every man and
woman and child from every house in the cul-de-sac were standing like
ghosts on their front lawns looking up at the sky. I too looked up, and
that is when I saw it. It was monstrous. In the sky, many miles up was a
large figure in the shape of a pyramid. I recall that the "pyramid" had
four sides. The figure was so clear and large that I could make out images
on the sides, which appeared to be disfigured eyes and strange alien
patterns. Whilst the shape appeared solid, it appeared to cast no shadow
upon the ground. All people that gazed upon this phenomenal object were in
awe, and I could do nothing but join them. I stared at that great shape for
a great time.
I recall the next moment being at home and watching the news. This must
have occurred a week or so after he appearance of the object. The reporter,
a woman, said that the origins of the great mass were unknown and it was
also unknown whether the object was friend or foe. However, I remember her
saying that the object was not stationary- it was moving towards the ground
from the sky at a slow pace. Eventually, she said, it may hit ground. I
also recall hearing the reporter saying that the object had bottom wall
widths of 200km across. The object was present only over the South West of
Australia- but due to its immense size it could cause worldwide damage.
The next day or week or so, I noticed that the sky had darkened
significantly. People had evacuated from many areas in Perth. I went
outside, and looked upon the sky. The object was close- only a skyscraper's
height away- and although it did not cast a shadow- it almost seemed like
the sky was darkened because of it- the sky, it seemed, was the shadow. I
ran back into the house and overheard that the object will reach ground
tomorrow. I was horrified, and ran to my phone. I rang Ben. His dad had
already evacuated and told Ben to do so. Ben agreed to drive me and anyone
else in my house to safety. I tried to convince my family to come, but they
would not budge. When Ben arrived, parked up my driveway, I went to the car
and Vanessa agreed to come with me. We got into Ben's car, I sat in the
front and Vanessa in the back. The sky was so dark and overcast it seemed
like it was deep into the night, but it was only early evening. Our plan
was to drive out of the area where the object was to as far away as
possible. I remember Ben saying that the best areas were way outside the
South West zone, but it would take more than a day to get out. Vanessa had
money ready to pay for petrol when needed.
As we exited onto Forest Lakes drive I noticed on the corner of my eye a
bright light- when I turned to see it I looked upon a meteorite that was
falling to the ground in an abnormal pattern in the vicinity of the object.
The object appeared to only hover above my house. I told Ben to hurry, but
I knew the end was coming.
We turned onto Bannister road at full speed. The sky was still darkening.
In front of us was a single car that was speeding also, to get away from
the object. I was still looking at the car when the sky suddenly became
ablaze with meteorites-, which hammered the car in front and drew both us,
and the driver in the other car to stop and pull over to the side of
Bannister road. The last thing I saw before I looked down was the sky thick
with deadly meteorites. I turned around and grabbed my sister and huddled
over her, Ben followed and we formed a tight circle, frightened to death.
The only sounds I heard were the sounds of the car roof being battered and
torn apart by the meteorites. One crashed through the car. I said to
Vanessa, 'this is the end'. I closed my eyes.
Then I woke up.
"Huh want was that" I said to myself.. I lay down knowing that it was a
