This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
( Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:

"The world is such a beautiful mystery," Meaghan said while gazing at the undulating bands of green light shimmering in the clear night sky.

Meaghan turned toward Jack in the chilly darkness, her eyes narrowing as she released her arm from around his.
"You're such a jerk!" she proclaimed before stomping off down the snow-covered road toward town.
