It’s a bomber’s moon she thought. Then caught herself, the war had been over 50 years.

Suddenly a whistle pierced the stillness and a crack and thump exploded into a rainbow of colours nearby.

Instinct dropped her to the ground, as close to earth as she could possibly get to reduce her target area

Nana, Nana where are you? Jamie’s voice called out. Your birthday fireworks have started.

Heaving upwards she smiled, if only they had seen me work my resistance magic she thought.

      1. I remember during the Cuba conflict and John F. Kennedy was President, at school we use to have to have bombing drills. Everyone had to crawl underneath their desks. It was a very frightening time.

  1. Beautiful story. I feel sorry for her, the terror of these bomb nights never leaves her. But she can smile, and I hope she tells stories about her resistance magic to her grandchildren.
