The Great Hush - Jerry

We sat here, all in the room with Jade's dead mother.
All silent.
Tears streamed down all of our faces.
We knew we would never be safe again.
Never.
Heavy rain thudded down upon the house, falling like our tears.
Who was next among us?
Nobody dared put anyone's name forward.
No, we were content sitting in that great hush.
That great, terrible, horrified silence.
But that question still pervaded us.
Who was next? 

The End
