The Covenant – Flash Fiction for 5/18/12

Sunday mornings Reverend Brown preached fire and brimstone. Sunday afternoons he liked to take his shotgun into the rich green fields and blow tiny birds to pieces. They didn’t have souls. One afternoon he got soaked in a rainstorm, but it passed, the sun came out and a spectacular double rainbow appeared. The Rev smiled, knowing that the rainbow was God’s promise never to destroy the earth again by water. He was striding home when he felt the ground tremble, and a deafening rumble came from the sky. He looked up to see the giant fireball coming right at him.

  1. Impressive, indeed! I like the way how you emphasized this : “The Rev smiled, knowing that the rainbow was God’s promise never to destroy the earth again by water.”

    Genesis 9:12-13
    And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
