The Watch Begins [flash 87]

She had warned them, but they didn’t listen. An old demented woman, full of ravings, living in a trailer full of cats… why would anyone take her seriously? But then the crops failed. And the flesh-eating bugs arrived, as large as ravens. The children saw the shadows first, before they began to bleed. Some adults saw shadows, fertile women, and then they screamed and screamed. But it was too late.

The golden eyes were in the sky, blotting out the sun, and the watch had begun.
