We stood on the balcony and watched her hand explode.

January 1st, 2013, 2am

It spits at first, then FWOOM! Bright yellow burning sparks, her dark hand engulfed within it, mesmerising.

The others shout ‘Let it go!’ ‘Aren’t you going to let it go?!’ A bang then someone screams but it’s not her. She’s holding her phone firmly in one hand filming her other hand explode as the rocket takes off.

After she just said, ‘I thought it would fly off by itself.’ She shrugged when she said it, but there was a lightness to her for days afterward.

Thom, Craig, Chris, Sara and 6 others said thanks.
