One Day Left

It was the day before everything changed. It had been a hot July day, humid and energy-draining in the parts of the world where it was summer. Where it was winter, it had been unusually warm. Ominously warm.

Everything was quiet on the street. It was too hot for children to play outdoors. The only refuge was the air-conditioned inside, or a cooler basement if air conditioning was not available.

There were no cars on the street, no buses, no trucks, no bicycles.Β  No joggers. No one.Β  Nothing.

No one knew what was coming, but everyone sensed–something–was changing. Forever.
