FFfAW: Anti-climactic

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Sonya with the blog, Only 100 Words. Thank you Sonya!

Let us meet at the old fort, she had said. Nobody ever goes there.

Now I’m standing here, staring at the rubble of the collapsed fort. They’re loading what’s left of our bodies into the ambulance. I’m just glad the policemen covered up our nakedness before the world could see it.

News reporters from all of the popular networks were babbling away, staring into their respective cameras with questioning eyes. But at least they all got the report right –

“The worst has finally occurred. Old Sikandar Fort has caved in today at around 7:40 PM, leaving nothing but the north tower standing. Despite numerous pleas, the government had always played a deaf-ear to preserving heritage buildings. And if what we are hearing from the police is right, two dead bodies were found under the wreckage. Going by their nakedness it was presumed that they were having sex when the calamity occurred.”
