In The Shadow Of The City

Only one survived



Curled in a foetal position, Faith clamped her ears tightly, desperate to block out the horrifying din. The bunker shook, concrete walls quivering as the world above suffered.

The deafening roar increased, vibrating through Faith’s bones. Paralysed with fear, her screams caught in her throat as her tears fell. Closing her eyes, she endured it.

When the onslaught ceased, silence descended. Dead silence. Not a creature stirred, not a soul cried out as, blinking, Faith surveyed the desolate wasteland she’d once called home.

And in the distance, the city stood. Untouched. Unashamed. Unrepentant.

They’d pay. She’d see to that.
