“From Across the Sea” by Tina McFarlane.

As the breeze that had chased me across the dunes grew quiet, I gasped at the beauty of the scarlet twilight as I stepped on the beach. Rain from that morning made the amber sand soft and comforting as it covered my toes, like slippers. I knew that I only had a few moments, and I wasn’t going to let anything sour my mood. As the mushroom cloud kissed the sky, I closed my eyes as the waves began to rise.
