Under Rock and Steel


Under Rock and Steel

Written by Nicholas D. Lamb

Urban exploration in an abandoned neighborhood to escape peering eyes for our lovers play. But poor luck strikes when the building cripples across our lustful bodies. Dusted but unscathed, we scour through loose rubble for an escape route but to no avail. The days draw on and our strength wans, drawing the attention of vermin who decide to taste me on a sudden whim. That’s when infection takes hold with symptoms of the incurable; rabies. Slowly and painfully my body shuts down, with lips unable to whisper my love or help her escape my collapsing grave of rock and steel.
