Creative Writing: The Last Days Of Earth

1260 words - 5 pages

Destruction

It was a dark, cold, cloudy day. The clouds covered the sky like a big black sheet, nothing to be seen except darkness that seemed to go on forever. This was the third day in a row that there had been complete darkness, there was no getting rid of it. This was because of ‘the meteorite.’
It was Daisy Chamberling that broke the news at her usual time, 5 o’clock. It was a horrific moment as shock was spread all over the world by this news. Usually Daisy goes on about unimportant cases but this time she was serious. That was the big moment the world changed. Although Daisy was a news caster and you would expect her to be a social woman, she wasn’t. In fact she was the complete opposite.
Daisy was a bright, intelligent 40 year old woman even though she never acted it. She was a well-brought up child until her father died and she inherited all his money. That’s when she became two-faced. She spent her money like it was going out of fashion, she would criticise other people just because they weren’t up to her standards and she was too posh. She sat in her chair, in the studio, like she was royalty, ordered people like slaves and got everything she wanted, at top notch. Daisy wanted to be the best but no-one could beat the weather girl, she was the best. Everybody loved her.
Chelsea was a smart, classy but beautiful girl that was down to earth about things in life. Chelsea had come so far in life without any family and was only 25 years old. She was laid back about things but aware of people’s needs and worldwide issues. She was brave and confident to show people she wasn’t a little girl but a fighting woman waiting for the right time to show that.
It had been three days since the terrifying news and nobody had a plan or an idea of what to do. Over the past couple of weeks the government and presidents of the world were meeting up to discuss issues. But over that couple of weeks the weather and matters started to get worse. The rain wouldn’t stop so people were flooded in their houses, thunder and lightning would occasionally come and when it did, it sounded like someone hitting a symbol in your ear, it was so loud and frightening. There were also several earthquakes that didn’t help matters as towns were being destroyed and no one could help dying or injured people. The world was one big disaster zone waiting to hit you in the face.
This was when Chelsea decided to take drastic actions. She wanted to help improve situations even though the meteorite couldn’t be stopped. She got the government to fly in food, necessities, the emergency crew and people willing to risks there lives for others. This all went to plan and for once in her life she felt like a woman, that she had always wanted to be. While people were busy doing work and helping out, Daisy sat in her house full of guilt and fear of what might and what will happen to her and surroundings. Countries were starting to get back up on there feet but so...
