The Vat

A flash of lightning illuminated the dark grey firmament from the direction of the Vatican. A pause. Then thunder rippled from right to left. Across the bridge before us, the sound ricocheted from the historic centre of Rome. Amplified and focused by the complex network of narrow alleyways, the shock wave was spat out across the Tiber with a frighteningly explosive BANG!

God was angry. But he was too late, because I'd been to the Vatican, seen the Sistine Chapel, seen the Pope, and escaped before he even realised I was there.
