Short story: <i>The Rapture</i>

Tough tattoos, spiky jewelery, cracked teeth, stale breath, a raised eyebrow, a broken fist.

Black jeans, dirty shirts, the pack mutters, an absence of light, a sense of anticipation.

Outside, sneering, frightened bias.

Inside, the crowd shuffles and stares. The lights dim.

This is the result of a fifteen minute writing exercise. The only constrictions were the time limit and five randomly selected words from the dictionary. Today the words were: bias, rapture, tough, pack, and absence.
