Both work and technology conspired against me today, so I have some writing left to do tonight.

Your prompt du jour: apocalypse came walking down the street.
Just an odd phrase that popped into my head this morning.
The earth shook beneath his feet as Apocalypse walked down the middle of Main Street. Cars honked their horns like bleating sheep before their drivers beat hasty retreats. On the seventh floor I took a seat and watched with glee as he destroyed the toys of the terrified elite.
I sipped a martini and cheered him on, a mighty king controlled by a mere pawn. Oh, they had laughed and yawned when I proposed the project I codenamed Brawn. Now they all had blood stained lawns and they would still be running until the dawn!
I reached for the phone and made the call, satisfied now that he had crushed the stupid mall. I told the president to be a doll - just pay up or Apocalypse will destroy it all.
Now I own this island, its people are my slaves, and Apocalypse makes sure they all behave.
