Oblivious- A burst of creativity

Love can make you oblivious to the world around you.
We stood there staring at each other. Holding our gaze for what seemed like an eternity. Neither one of us blinked; even if we tried we couldn't have any way. My eyes were fixed upon him and his eyes were fixed upon me. Marshmallow clouds filled the sky as the sun blushed uncontrollably, tinting the sky gold. But we acknowledged absolutely none of this. I was here and he was there. That was all we needed to know. It didn't matter what happened around us because In a few hours these things would cease to exist. Him and i would watch their extinction. Building by building and person by person. Nothing would be the same again but weirdly i don’t think we minded that much. We were together at last. Even if it was only for 60 seconds.
That’s the exact amount of time it took for my world to end. Or at least I think. The events flashed by before i could even comprehend what was happening. 5 seconds for the bomb to fall. 10 for it to penetrate deep into the ground and 45 seconds for it to destroy what i once called home. We watched it burn to the ground. I held back the tears. At least we were together.

 This was an extract of a story i was going to write but decided not to. I hope you liked it.
