100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Wk#34 – Prompt: …but I turned it off… – 100 words – “Light and the Universe”

13 Mar

Time had almost arrived. All was ready for the beginning. Soon the word would be given.

“What’s this?” an amused voice resounded.

Time had started too soon, “…but I turned it off. I thought it’d cool.”

“Little angels need to learn patience,” came a smiling reply.

“Are you angry?”

“No, I knew it would be so.”

A singularity, immensely hot and dense started its rapid expansion, cooling as it moved. Subatomic particles formed. Protons, neutrons and electrons combined to make atoms, the process begun.

There was light and it was good. Time will tell if what’s given is used wisely.

    Right now I would say it was not wisely given. What happens, I wonder, if someone flips the switch and turns it off?

    Another great take on the prompt.

      Thanks for the comment.

      I’m hoping humanity is growing up and can realise in time what they stand to lose. 🙂

    Nice take on the creation story.
    The last line conveys so much in its few words.

      Thanks for the comment.

      The idea was to add science, i.e. Big Bang Theory, to creation. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      It was a way of tying science into belief. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      Knowing a little about the Big Bang Theory, science isn’t too certain about how it began. I liked the idea of a small angel starting the process too soon. 🙂

    A really unusual take on the piece. Full marks for originality.

      Thanks for the comment.

      I like to try to think outside the normal meanings of prompts. 🙂

    I think it is great and is a great link between science and creation. A great piece that made me want to read more.

      Thanks for the prompt.

      As science delves more in how things came to be, I like to think of how God still has a part in the process.
