Hellfire Is a Subjective Term

Earth, fresh clefts and chasms caused by the upheaval of tectonic plates, tired of moving from side to side, deciding to shoot up through the surface, forming severe mountain ranges, sending waves rippling across the oceans to smash on the opposite shores, or to meet in the middle and slap together, force against force and nowhere to go, except everywhere, gobbling up glaciers, crunching on coasts, sinking islands and abandoning beaches so violently they became sudden deserts of shellfish, was not doing too well.

The reverend finished his sermon. We left the church happy, convinced we were safe and protected in his colony.
