They sky was torn in two. The two pieces were slowly pulling apart. In the gap that I thought would be dark, there was light. So much light. It poured threw the tear and drenched the nighttime. It soaked up every spot of dark and replaced it with a light far too bright for my eyes. It didn’t belong in this world and it reveled in the ability to scare off all nocturnal life.
I had always thought of light as a good thing, but this light was cruel and it was cold and it held no comfort.
