We waited in the twilight, shop front rainbows splashing colour across our faces. In the distance the flashing beat of authority moved forward, a line of dark solemn silhouettes waiting behind. We raised our hands in surrender, then as one we sang out, our song carrying across the pock marked tarmac.

Suddenly clouds billowed into life around us, as if the sky had fallen to earth. Candyfloss pillows that choked the air from our lungs. Hands hurriedly clasped mouths; tears flowed with terror and pain. We fled, deep into the twilight.

Behind us red and blue lightning pierced the sky.
