  • Ahanu: Inspection

    Oh god. I hope it's not me they're talking to. If they think I got cut by one of the Ferals, then I'm sunk. They'll kill me on the spot if they have any common sense.

    "It's just a scratch, Bel." I hear a woman's shaky response and then before I realize i…

  • Ahanu: Sealed

    There's a little girl that peeks her head out the doors. For a second she almost looked like Viv and I bite my tongue from calling out to her. A woman joins the girl and she looks like she's yelling to someone behind her.

    I hear teeth gnashing behind me …

  • Bel: Inspection

    "It's only a scratch." She says, and she stumbles. We both know that's not true, since we both are aware of what a head wound can do.

    She inspects him, and I know she's trying to find any claw marks or bites that punctured skin. If the mutants came into …

  • Mia: Inspection

    "It's only a scratch." Mia waved it off although she knew she had gotten hit hard with the metal bars as they had swung into place over the doors. But she had more important matters to deal with at the moment than herself.

    She stumbed towards the figure …

  • Bel: Sealed

    I take quick stock of the doors, making sure the bolts and bars are in place. It seems secure enough although the mutants are actually howling on the other side now. I'm not sure if that's from pain or disappointment.

    I look around the room and notice pe…

  • Mia: Sealed

    "On my count, slam the doors shut. We will need every bit of strength we have to seal the doors."

    "This is crazy." Bel whispered, her eyes locked on the pack of mutants.

    "Trust me." Mia glanced at Bel who nodded back.

    "Albert, Scott, Richard. I need he…

  • Ahanu: Sunset

    They're getting closer. I hear them in the alleys and in the shadows that are getting longer. They're bolder in the city. Not as scared of the light although it blazes on their sensitive skin. I didn't even have to worry about them back home, there weren…

  • Bel: Sunset

    "Wait! Please! You can't leave me out here at night!" Someone shouts from outside. I peek outside and see a person is running towards the halfway-closed doors. He’s being chased by a pack of mutant humans. I'm still surprised the mutants come out so soon …

  • Mia: Sunset

    The elderly man was laying at Bel's feet as she torched the mutant to death. Mia froze. In Bel's hands were a can of hairspray and a grill lighter. This young girl, no more than 14, had fashioned a flame thrower out of two common objects and rescued an ol…

  • Bel: Scream

    I decide to ask her how long she's been working here, when I hear a loud shriek behind me. I whirl around to see an old woman pointing outside. People are running away from the doors so it's difficult for me to make out what's going on.

    Then I see an old…

  • Bel: Surgery

    "Take these pills; they'll alleviate the pain a bit." I say and I'm secretly happy that he hasn't noticed that he is missing a leg, but I'm dreading every millisecond till when he notices.

    His eyes widen, I can practically see his pulse get as fast as wh…

  • Mia: Bandages

    "Please, just drink this. I'll be right back." She said to the grinning injured man. She rolled her eyes after turning away. He was probably a hunter or soldier of fortune who got in a fight with a mutant bear. She hated the way they always stared at her.…

  • Io: Detritus

    “This place looks like it got puked on, Viv.” I chuckle to myself, putting on my sunglasses so I can take a better look at the rotting lumps of detritus that once was a city.

    I can imagine Viv’s smart aleck comeback about not hurting the city’s feelings…
