Waking up with raging headaches, both men struggled to open their eyes, as a radiant white light felt like it was burning their skin. The ground was trembling and a godawful crunching racket made their throbbing skulls almost disintegrate. What was going on???
Carstairs and Carruthers were able to force their eyes open. The sound was coming from the left. They saw a monstrous sinewy grey claw grab hold of a clump of grey, moss-covered buildings in the lost city and pull them loose from their stone foundations. Chunks of stone went flying, as did stone dust and other debris. Slowly their eyes traveled up, to see who or what the possessor of the claw was.
Their screams died in their ragged throats as an extraterrestial that looked like part elephant and part great white shark met their eyes. It was the beginning of another Kaiju invasion!
I’m not tagging 3 people, but please feel free to take on the challenge and write a story!
