In the darkness, the assemblage of Hebrews watched the flashing lights with great interest. The strange and jaunty sounds filled their ears and faded into silence. The display over, they shifted in their seats, murmuring amongst themselves. Was the plea they had heard good and just? Or was it as dark and sinister as the heart of Pharaoh? Their eyes all shifted to their leader, whose furrowed brow signaled deep thought and prayer.

Moses whispered something into his brother’s ear and stood up, casting his eyes about the throng always with him. Once the prophet was on his feet, Aaron stood up next to him, his stature, as always, purposeful and commanding. The Hebrews hushed in anticipation.

Aaron raised his hands. “Children of Israel, followers of the one true God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, mine brother Moses has spoken, and in accordance with the will of the Lord they God,” he paused dramatically. “Let us all go the lobby, where we shall get ourselves some treats!”

And thus the Hebrews departed en masse for the lobby.

    Indeed, I did not see that coming, excellent. I’m liking how many different types of things can all be done from one word. Thursdays are becoming a day in which I am excited for again.
