Julia and Isra left the car, walking past doors thrown open and dishevelled beds left in a panic. The train’s disconnected sections were hot and close to rotting under the sun, waiting to be hauled away so the tracks were clear again. But there weren’t any signs of the monster’s spree until they reached the car that Julia had walked into only three days prior. The pools and smears of blood hadn’t been displaced from where she’d first seen them, and in the daylight things were even more gruesome.

Yuli exited one of the cabins. “It made a hole.”

“Oh no,” Isra said as they walked inside. There was a monster-sized gash in the ceiling, directly above a ripped and red-stained couch.

“It dropped right onto someone,” Julia finished her thought.

The group moved up the car, surveying each scene where it had struck. According to the report, four people had been injured, and six killed.

“This is where five of the deaths occured, then the conductor was killed at the very front,” she said. “Let’s keep going.”

“It ends here,” said Apricot.

“The trail goes cold?” Isra asked.



Sorry for the lack of an update Sat, we didn't have any internet and I was pretty worn out from the move. I know it doesn't happen often, but if I have to suddenly skip or change an update, I post about it on my Twitter.

Moving went... Okay? There were hiccups but nothing super bad. I'm mostly settled in, just not quite comfortable yet.
