He had to make a choice: run to safety with everyone else, or head back and help others get out of danger. His face was furrowed with tears. He knew he was powerless against them, but he moved fast and helped others get out of danger. It was a moonless night, not even the stars were witnesses to the scene. He seemed to be floating on the dusty road. Years later, he could rub and close his eyes and those scenes pulsing and throbbing in his skull. He could still feel the rolling impact of this horrible experience.

    Something terrible happened but I guess we’ll never know what – not sure I want to anyway! Excellent.

    I don’t know what’s going on. You certainly created a mystery.

    It sounds all very dangerous. The feelings are very well described.
