March Drabble Challenge: Sunrise

Horror PromptsGillian Church is hosting another horror drabble challenge: 31 prompts for 31 creepy tales throughout March. This time, we can decide on the length of the piece but I’m sticking to the 100-word default.

Can you do it?

The Prompt:
Sunrise

The Submission:
The survivors crawled from their bunker, weak from starvation, their eyes partially blinded by the glaring sunrise. The city lay in ruins all around them; buildings were smouldering remains, cars were flaming wrecks, and the torn remains of bodies littered the wreckage. As they stumbled into the rubble of the civilised world, their elation at having survived was short-lived as a hoard of croaking, malformed creatures marched ominously towards them, blasting with heat rays that seared limbs from bodies and ripped open chests upon impact. The survivors tried to run, but radiation poisoning made them easy prey to their invaders.
