The Monster Is Quiet (at least for now)

August 16th, a lovely Saturday morning in Modacius – after a quiet night without the sounds of war from the Giant Metal Shredding Machine. I still have a deep cough from breathing in the plume of fine metal particulate matter last week, but am hoping the lungs will clear if the air remains clean and fresh like today.
How quickly the threat of destruction settles in. The fear of the war lord starting his Giant Crusher looms large. It has been quiet for 24 hours. Did the DEP* inspector order a cease and desist? How long will it hold?
At least for this one glorious day, my thoughts can return to a creative life and not just be possessed with survival.
