Visit From The Past

“Thom’s little eyes popped open as he was unexpectedly, and most unwelcomingly, rumbled out of sleep. Gasping, his heart clapping painfully, Thom bolted upright and then scrambled out of bed, the floor shaking under his naked feet. Dashing outside into the bright night, he was met with a most grand and magnificent sight. A stalk, if it could rightly be called that, had sprung up out of the green earth, and was rocketing towards the sky at a furious rate. Thom stared, awestruck.” – Emily Kinney
