We were in a circular room with a high dome ceiling. But now it was open to the sky. It was being pulled apart, destroyed. Large chunks of concrete was falling to the floor. We tried to dodge them, our insides rattling as they hit the floor with amplifying sound.
This thing… monster… something unrecognizable, many meters in height, kept reaching up and grabbed remnants of the dome. How could we get out? I looked to my best friend and ran to the furthermost side away from it. We began to climb up the wall, hoping it wouldn’t see us. The room was full of terrified screams of other people; it seemed to be enough of a distraction. Reaching the top, we realized how far away from the ground we really were. There was a river below us. We knew we had to jump.
It was as though we were gliding through the air. Somehow we landed softly on the other side of the river. But there was no time. We began to run.
Everything was so open; there was no chance in hiding. Red dirt covered the road as we ran in the sun. We could hear people catching up behind us. Do we stray away from them? or keep together as a pack? We turned down a right lane, only to be joined by a mob of people. It would find us for sure.
We reached a car park and i saw him in the back of a car with his friend. I yelled to my bestfriend and pointed at the car. I began to run towards him, dodging the stationary cars. I kept yelling, but they continued driving slowly. I started wailing as i saw them driving to the exit. But the car paused before making its turn and i reached it with my friend on my heels. I shouted his name, smacking my hands against the back of the car, making my way towards to back door. My fists reached the window but the car took off. I stood there in despair, left in the dust, calling out one last time. Meters down the road, I heard him yell back my name, but the car kept driving.
