Prompt: The world is in ruins, and humans are very, very scarce. Two friends become separated. One friend follows breadcrumb-like messages to the other telling them their new location. The messages become progressively more chilling.


“at the library”

“left @ 5, check old main”

“something was here. i’m @ blue house, red door, 4th and G”

“don’t knock. i hear breathing. go to back”

“couldn’t stay. they came. creek”

“be careful. they are watching. don’t let them see you. cross over.”

“they’re everywhere. in the trees. crawl. hands and knees. don’t look at them. meet me @ old fort. safe there.”

“don’t turn around. i was hungry. i’m so sorry.”
