A blaring rang through the hall and rattled in Paul’s head. Despite its noise, it couldn’t keep Paul’s eyes open. It couldn’t keep him from losing his consciousness.
Pain and a banging brought Paul from the darkness. He blinked back into his fluorescent world to see the bulkhead bulge inward. The metal gave another pounding and buckled just a little more. Paul watched as another blow landed before the pain sharpened. The muscles throughout his body strained, twisting his body against the cold ground. He rolled free from the metal frame and onto the shards of glass.
The door of the bulkhead continued to smash inwards. Its corner finally broke the seal and flooded the hallway with a screech that drowned out the eardrum shattering alarm that had been sounding.
The shoulders of Paul’s shirt nearly disintegrating as his muscles ripped through their seams. Fat continued to metabolize to fuel the change as he began delivering punch after punch into the concrete in protest to the pain. Glass shattered and dug further and further into his hand as he started cratering the concrete.
The symphony of metal stopped only to be replaced by its groans. Paul looked up form his bloody attack on the cement to see the door being peeled from the rest of the bulkhead. Pallor hands continued to widen the hole as the Paul watched, an unbearable rage building in him. The pain became a blur, the picture before him nothing more than a dream.
The hands retreated from the warped metal and the screeching stopped. The action lulled for only a moment before the bulkhead gave another cry. Bulging even further, a husk found itself crammed into the opening. Another bang came and another dried corpse pushed the first out and replaced it. The pause picked up again until another crash came.
The door finally flew from the bulkhead and spun in the air towards Paul. He tried to blink away from it in retreat, but his body refused to obey as the door sailed past him. A creature barreled through the opening, racing after the door, but it thudded to the ground, unable to recover from its own momentum. It lay there, twisted on the ground.
In a feat defying bones and human anatomy, the monster dug a winged claw into the wall and wetly slithered to its feet.
Paul worked a distended jaw until it offered a guttural, “HENRIC. WE DON’T HAVE TO DO THIS.”
The twisted bat narrowed its body, becoming sickly profiled by the fluorescent light. It cocked its head with a depraved smile as slick teeth glistened.
I think we owe it to ourselves
To stay or at least get fit,
Live healthy and long
Lives, if for nothing
Else, then to suck
Drier than the
Dust in our
Music in a Library
