Fiction: Engulf

Lillie McFerrin Writes

It was an eerie morning, clouds looked heavy, dark, nature was ready to lighten its load.

The town already had heavy snowfall for weeks, the weatherman feared if it starts to rain, there will be disaster, the roofs of the houses would cave in because of all the snow piled up on top, the  owners were warned they must clear the snow from the roofs before the rainfall.

Almost everyone knew what it means to have rain on top of snow, Marcus was aware of it too, he was old and weak, he could not go up to clear the snow, he waited patiently to have some kind of miracle to save him from getting swallowed up by the snow, the roof, the deluge.

He sat in one corner of his house and prayed to God to save him, he did not have the strength to do anything, he dozed off while praying, he dreamed an angel was talking to him, “do not be scared the voice said, I am here to save you.”

He opened his eyes, found himself in a cozy bed,someone was talking to him, it was the voice of a little girl, “Dear Marcus my Dad saved you and brought you to our house, you should not be afraid any more, from now on we all will take care of you!”

She hurriedly went where the noise came from, when she reached the courtyard she found her husband lying on his stomach with a pool of blood, what happened who did this was the question she asked herself, when she opened her eyes she found herself in a hospital bed with a group of physicians staring at her.

She sat up but they gently laid her on the bed and indicated she needed rest.
