55 - Rapture

He thought his troubles would be over. No more meaningless job, no more frustration over the woman he used to love but who was now changed.

Yes, he had looked forward to the apocalypse, but now his biggest worry was the leftover brochures. Perhaps they'd make a good fire to take the chill off reality.
