Nov_Image01The Broken Barriers
by Asena Lourenco

The glass wept for mercy as sweaty fingertips clung on for life. 
The translucent barrier tempted me with a peek at what it held within but with enough protection to conceal the villain hidden.
 The white streaks of light were fighting a losing battle as the night swallowed it whole. Muffled screams rang through my ears.
 Sharp, but quiet, as if it were through a broken telephone. 
My head rested against the ruins of a wall. 
A warm thick substance tickled my bare toes, as my eyes darted to confront this unwelcome guest. 
A shriek sounded from behind the bolted door, synchronised with my own.
 Fragments of red glass scattered across the floor as a fist of the same pigmentation appeared through the opening. 
The deafening beat from my chest stopped as my brain blanked. 
My shoulder hit the concrete with a thud as my vision closed off.
