Falling halfway to his knees Adrian scrambled around to take in the new danger and found himself staring at death made flesh.
Feeling his mind trying to pull from what he was seeing Adrian blinked several times attempting to get the image to make sense.
Crouched down on now broken concrete was a creature, Adrian didn't know how else to describe it, demon maybe.
Its skin was a mix of putrid greens and yellows, a trail of massive, bone colored spikes ran from its wide brow down the middle of an overly muscled back.
Even kneeling as it was, it dwarfed both Adrian and the gray coated man, its orange eyes taking both of them in, spoke of a predator’s intellect.
“I told you we had to run," the strange man said, "but you didn't want to listen, no one listens anymore. The world has become full of know-it-alls, and each one knows less than the last,” he pulled Adrian to his feet and stepped in front of him.
Anyway hope you enjoy it, I am having a blast writing it.
Interesting! :) Glad you're enjoying writing it! Thanks for following my blog! I'm hoping to "attend" some of WriteOnCon also!ReplyDelete
Yeah it's great.Delete
Very nice! Great writing and very intriguing! Well done!ReplyDelete
Awesome and very creeptastic, I must say! ;-) I'm glad I tagged you in this so you could show off your stuff (even if it is a little nerve-wracking--I know the feeling!). Best of luck in WriteOnCon!!ReplyDelete
Yeah I wasn't sure what would come up on the seventh page, but it worked out. Yeah WriteOnCon is great so far. It is a lot to take in, but I've learned a ton.Delete
Oooh intriguing! Love the description of the creature. The spikes and the muscled back make me think this thing is probably pretty damn fast... so I hope Adrian and the man RUN!!!ReplyDelete
lol, thank you, yeah it's pretty quick.Delete
Are you still enjoying WriteOnCon?
Strong writing! I especially liked that "death made flesh" bit. Rock on!ReplyDelete

Thank you, I am enjoying writing this one. I am trying free writing instead of plotting and it is very fast paced.
