Helpless Help

Gary turned, screams. A girl ran towards him. Ash was filling the already cloudy sky making it impossible to see. The toxic air stung his eyes and mouth. He looked down, his police uniform disappeared in the smog. He tried to look ahead when he was suddenly knocked off his feet. The girl looked down at him.

Distant crashes could be heard, loud thumps and sirens echoed through the grey sky. That was when they heard it, a thin zooming sound above them. Crash! Gary pulled the woman down on his chest, covering her face from the smoke. She was whimpering, he felt so... useless.

Suddenly the grey faded to black as his consciousness faded. "So, useless." His thoughts echoed those two words in his head. Before all his senses died.

The End
