100 words – Darkness Exploded

trees - darkness exploded

The darkness exploded with silence. All the insect noises stopped at once. Jacob could hear his heart pounding. He could feel the blood rushing through his veins. The harder he listened the more silent the woods became. All was dead. Not even a breeze blowing the quiet from the trees. A flash of lightning cracked the empty night.

Something moved in the bushes. Something small and quick. A hungry blue jay chirped. One by one all the comforting noises of darkness returned to the woods. Bugs and frogs chorused their relief. A lonely coyote howled. The Summer rain poured down.
