The first time i seen that purple fire shoot up into the sky, it liked to scare all my damn goats. They started bleating something fierce and then they up and bolted straight through the pen, knocking down half the posts. It took me two days to get em all together again and back in the pen, and after that the nanny goats wouldnt give milk for a week. And the goats werent the only ones frightened to hell! I shot up out of bed and darted to the window as the ground rumbledi got tangled up in my blankets and damn near fell flat on my face! The sky was cloudy that night, and that purple flame lit up the whole thing in an eerie glow. I thought them demons from up north had attacked us for sure.
