Asteroid-Earthquake

  MVS '17

— (into phone) Where are you, dad? You’re late.

— The house. Our home. Son, our home.

— I don’t know what you’re saying.

— The asteroid-earthquake, son. It hit the house. The house is gone now.

— Sure, dad. Now pick me up from practice.

— Son, everything…just shook. For what felt like hours. And the sounds…my god, the sounds…

— Jesus, dad. Chill.

— All is lost, son. God has turned His back on us.

— Yeah dad, okay. Now if you’re too busy being dramatic to pick me up, I’ll just walk home.
