27 Sep


Earth shatters around, they scramble to the lair in their thousands


Another explosion, the wounded flying in the air and crash in the pools


The floor erupts around, they try to block the entrance before…


The waters rise and force their way through the ones left behind, twisting their bodies into fractured rags, mixing with dirt and dust, steam-rolling down the tunnel, splitting into others, catching those too small or ill to run away, breaking armour, tearing walls apart.

*Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom*

Quieter now as those left drag themselves to higher tunnels, waves crashing below. She is safe, the children are safe. The others will wash away, shallow graves in the hardening mud. A thousand lost, a thousand more survive to take their place.

*boom, boom, boom*

And they carry on.
