Hey everyone, this is a trial run for attracting more people to my blog, but anywho, check it out here: www.purdybird.blogspot.comAs the rain started to fall, a sea of black slowly expanded beneath the droplets until the ground could no longer be seen. Beneath it, a whisper of words could be heard, and a few other hushed sounds. Slowly the sea of black broke apart into many separate pieces as if the rain drops had shattered glass. People could be seen scattering to remain sheltered by the shards. Most of them wore a matching black to their umbrellas. As each umbrella dispersed from the original location, a scar in the ground came into view. Like a cavity filling, not dirt, but wood rested above the hole. The wood was ornately carved with flowering vines and leaves in a Victorian style. At each corner stood a man, all four of them slowly lowering the heavy wooden filling into the tooth of the earth. As they did so, one solitary umbrella remained, under which a business man silently watched.
