SCAVENGER #5

Nate began to move again as the man stood stock still.  Despite the oppressive heat, a cold chill ran through his body and he shivered.  Nate was moving quickly now, the distance between them closing, less than half a kilometre now.  Suddenly, the man turned and stepped back inside re-emerging seconds later with his backpack. Continue reading “SCAVENGER #5”
