Symbol Of Unity
People from around the world flocked to see the “glowing eggs.”
They seemed to pop up from nowhere, shattering the darkness of a soft spring night. The glow was visible for miles and attracted people like moths. They brought people together and became a symbol of unity.
Gatherings started immediately as curious town’s people surrounded the lake. Within days, news of the phenomenon spread globally, and the pilgrimages began. Our town became a festival that lasted months. Apart from the unwashed masses and off-key sing-a-longs, it was a beautiful scene.
Things took a turn in autumn when the eggs hatched.
