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.

    1. I had enough carnage in last week’s story. This week I had to leave it with a subtle suggestion. You can play along and make it as gentle or horrific as you want. Thank you.
