Flash Fiction: Under a Dead Sun

Episode 8

Billy and Katee ran from the burning stable, the sounds and smells of rotting flesh burning behind them. Several of the creatures had escaped the stable, some still on fire as they pursued the couple.

" Make for the Sheriff's office Katee!"

Two of the beasts stood at the doorway of the Sheriff's office and Billy freed his Colt with his right hand. Quickly thumbing back the hammer he fired off three quick shots. One shot was dead on as the monster's brains splattered over the wall. The other two hit the second creature, but failed to drop it. As it lurched away from the door Billy thumbed back the hammer again.

Suddenly Katee pushed him aside and fired the Winchester. The powerful rifle boomed as the creature's head exploded in a shower of gore.

Billy flashed Katee a grateful smile and jumped up to open the door. Trying the knob and finding it locked he lowered his shoulder to bust it in.

"You'd better make quick work of that Billy, we're about to get more company than we can handle....."

Katee looked to see the survivors lurching from the livery explosion head towards them, and there were more of them than they had bullets for.

End of Line.
