The Dawnless Day



Blue-black clouds the colour of a bruise began to well up in the East, an ominous shadow that poured relentlessly from Mordor. A dying sun lit the cloud base from beneath, casting an eerie light over the darkening land.


The cloud spread, blanketing the sky until only a small patch of clear blue remained through which a single star gleamed like an eye. A wedge of cloud shaped like a hand groped towards it and closed like a grasping fist, squeezing all light from the sky.


The star glimmered once and was gone, and darkness rolled unchecked across the land.
