The Cleansing

Imaginary Worlds-Earth Goddess

Gaia rose from the ground taking the form of a female composed of plants. She scooped up a handful of the water that was trickling through the artificial pond. Her eyes closed in concentration as she examined it. Her features twisted angrily. “Enough! For too long you have poisoned my very self, the air, the land, and the water! Today it ends!” She roared in a voice that shook the world, releasing her suppressed rage. Enormous waves raced across the oceans, scouring clean the shores. Tornados spiraled into existence, tearing and gouging paths of destruction. Sleeping volcanos awoke, spouting fire and ash. Mountains trembled, launching massive avalanches down their slopes. Rolling earthquakes raked the land, lifting and dropping random pieces. The screams of terror and pleas for mercy were music to her ears. When it was finished she examined the ravaged planet with satisfaction. Freedom! The virus called Humanity had been erased from her presence. Time to start anew.
