It’s that time of week again! The time when our wonderful hostess Rochelle Wisoff-Fields puts up a photo prompt and we all take on the challenge of writing a story in 100 words to go with the photo.

Neon signs lit up the deserted high street and reflected in the water filled pot holes.
Screams and gunfire rip through the night, an explosion shakes the tarmac under our feet.
‘Hannah? What do we do?’
They were coming, they’d never stop until we were all wiped out.
I’m tired of running.
An inoculation to prevent the spread of deadly virus took my first life away. They will not take my second.
‘We fight back.’
The change was effortless, hair replaced skin. Teeth elongated, sharp and deadly.
I tipped my head back and howled for all to hear.
My howl was echoed back, from all over the city.
Alone we’d die, but as a Pack we could take them down.
