I sit on the couch, watching TV, when I hear a rumble in the distance. “Was that thunder?” I ask myself. Sure enough I’m answered with another rumble. “Eh, maybe this is one of those long distant storms and we won’t get anything,” I say, shrugging my shoulders.
Not even a moment later, my phone goes off saying, “a Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for your county.”
“Gee, Y/N, thanks for jinxing yourself,” I reply, still thinking out loud. I then see lightning flash from outside, and I scream. “TYLER!” I call out.
Tyler’s bedroom door opens, and he runs into the living room. “What’s happening?!? What’s wrong!?” He yells. “We’re about to get severe thunderstorms, and I’m scared. I then pull up the radar on my phone and show Tyler. "Look! These storms look nasty. I would know, I’m the weather nerd.”
Tyler then puts his fists on his hips and strikes a heroic pose. “Don’t worry, y/n, I’ll save you,” he says, puffing his chest.
“Well, Mr. Superhero, shut up and protect me,” I say with a fake attitude. All of a sudden, there’s a huge crash of thunder that makes me jump and scream, “TYLER!!”
He then plops down beside me and says, “its okay, Y/n, I’m right here.” Tyler then wraps an arm around my shoulder.
A few moments later, rain starts to pour loudly over the roof. Lightning strikes nearby and the sound is deafening. “Tyler, I’m scared,” I say, burying myself into Tyler’s chest.
“Shh, you’re okay. I’ll protect you,” Ty replies in a soft voice. He then rests his chin on the top of my head, and runs his fingers through my hair. There’s another crash of thunder, and Tyler wraps his arms tightly around me.
I try to ignore the thunder, and focus on the steady rhythm of Tyler’s heart. His heart beat is so relaxing that I dose off right there, in his arms, in the middle of a storm.
Note: this is one of my first stories. I’m still new at this, but I hope you like it. Thanks, markimoofan123 for the request. Took about an hour, but I hope it’s worth it.
My dog and I are partners. We walk together. We talk together.
Sometimes we sprint. She always wins, but she stops to let me catch up, with a smile on her face that says, “keep trying! Some day you’ll catch me!”
No matter how many times she runs ahead, she always swerves back to my side, and looks up at me as if to say, “I’m here if you need me.”
There are a lot of things we do well together, but the greatest thing we will ever do is the dance of dragons.
When the demons come dancing and taunting from inside my head and build a giant warrior of smog and despair, she stands by my side. Her eyes shine with fire and she breathes electricity into my veins. She summons energy from the earth itself, as she dances in circles around me, building a shield.
The demons come like a distant storm that glides across the sky in just moments. What seemed like a spring shower rapidly unfolds as an apocalyptic force, threatening to destroy everything you are.
The wind blows and it’s really the demons screaming threats of death and despair. It knocks me to the ground. But she’s right there, by my side. Her eyes speak of hope, perseverance, and vengeance. Her paws pound against the ground, and it’s as if the earth defies the sky, daring it to come closer, and she opens her mouth and roars. It’s like the sound of waves drowning a ship, and she’s threatening to crush the storm.
As quickly as it comes, it leaves again. The demons retreat, and we are left standing with the strength of dragons still coursing through our veins.
All he is, is a distant storm Whose rain will never drench me. All he is, is a distant storm Whose only cold air will reach me. What he was, was no distant storm, But a tempest over my head. After waiting for years to disappear, I put distance between us instead. Now all I need are warm clothes, And he’s as good as dead.
I planned a landscape photography tour in the bavarian alps for getting some thunderstorms in combination with this beautiful place in the Ammergauer Alps. Unfortunately the storms by itself were not that good to photograph, but a distant one with rain falling in front of the setting sun produced this insane evening light…these are the moments you can´t plan exactly but let you know again and again how beautiful this earth can be :-)
