Everyone was sure it was the end of the world as they knew it.
The storm began with a huge surge and hurricane winds. Lightning struck the church, taking the steeple and roof.
For days everyone hunkered in their houses waiting for the end.
When the storm subsided, they knew they still had to face the invasion fleet.
The sails of the mighty flagship appeared. And then another ship.
But that was it.
Where was the fleet? Why the white flags?
The seasick remnants of the invading army surrendered in the burnt-out church.
Life for the town was forever changed.

(The angle of the view made me a little seasick, so… ;) )
