The Marvellous Dome

See Stephanie, it looks so marvellous from outside and I am sure it must be equally ornate from inside.

Trust the local and not Google, intervened the guide with a wry smile.

Eventually, Stephanie agreed.

They stepped inside and were stunned by the sheer ostentatiousness of the chandlers, pillars and the overall aura.

Outside, the weather changed. Dark clouds kept floating above the dome.

A thunderous lightning struck, not once, but twice, and reduced the dome to a derelict structure.

The next minute, land turned and a marvellous dome stood in the place.

‘Trust Google’, said the guide and walked away in search of tourists.
