Awakening: a Last Hero Story Snippet Ch. 12
Chapter 12: Invitation Snippet
As the crowd calmed and collected, people began pointing skyward as black essence formed. The essence quickly spread like a fluid outward in all directions, filling the sky and pouring downward. It continued encompassing everyone fortunate enough to fit inside.
Once it made contact with the ground the essence coalesced into a solid domed structure. Slae stood just tall enough to see over the crowd and past them to the edge of the dome. The walls were like tinted glass allowing Slae to peer through at late-comers who were gathering, pounding on its surface.
Then a ghastly shockwave came off the dome and everyone caught outside was sheared of all flesh. The corpses became nothing more than burnt skeletal figures that crumbled to the ground; becoming small piles of dust and pebble-looking bone fragments.
Another shockwave emanated from the dome vaporizing what was left of the remains. For half a second a dim wispy light formed around the dome then swept away. Slae stared in shock and realized that no one else even noticed outside the dome. Instead, everyone was fixated on the stage as lights flashed on.
