The Event





Jonah excitedly found his spot among the sea of spectators. He looked out across the water and he knew he was in the perfect spot to witness the event. He opened his box of chocolate candies and started to pop them in his mouth one by one, pacing himself so as not to finish them too quickly. He wanted them to last, so he wouldn’t have to leave to buy more. He couldn’t miss this. Jonah stared up in the sky waiting, the holographic displays off to either side of the crowd displaying the countdown. “Three…two…one”, the crowd chanted with the timer and they all stood in awe, as they watched the moon exploding right in front of their eyes.
