It was a strange and repulsive sight: a gigantic life-giving organ, pulsing and quivering. This terrible tumour was becoming ever more visible: a living membrane entangled with veins, tiny black figures crawling out, running about in a businesslike way, like ants...
Artyom never had to deal with a pack of hunting predators before, but for some reason he had no doubts that the creatures were preparing to attack. It was time to act. Turning sharply around, he shouldered his machine gun and caught one of the dark figures in its sight.excerpt from: Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky
Upon popular demand, here's the promised post-apocalyptic piece. It's loosely based on Dmitry Glukhovsky's book "Metro 2033" (yes, I'm referring to the book, not the video game); I was not entirely sure which theme to pick, so I ended up mixing a few together: The main protagonist roaming the streets and encountering one of the dark ones at the botanical garden.
I quite enjoyed reading this, so if you're somewhat into dystopic novels, this could be of your interest. It basically talks about humanity's remains after a nuclear war and how they try to survive against the creatures that have popped up due to mutation thanks to radiation. The surviving people have moved into the subway-stations and try to live their lives there.
Well, I hope this piece is to your delight. I'd be more than happy about a comment or fav. Enjoy!
