Truth in Those Old Lies

Before the volcano underneath Yellowstone blew up, creating a dark layer of ash in the atmosphere, the sun shone almost every day, they said. That story was from Sandy’s grandparents’ grandparents’ time, so who knew if any of it was true.

Her job was to remove the barbed wire fences, opening the prairies, part of the long-range plan to help Mother Nature in her recovery: let the animals roam free again.

Sunlight flickered through the clouds. It was the second time that year that Sandy had seen the sun. Maybe, she thought, there is some truth in those old lies.
