The heat beating down on them was nothing compared to the burning truck as they spilled out of it, blurs, howls and moments of frantic battle all becoming one.
The first shots fired.
A girl screaming.
Someone close choking on metal while shouting “Allahu Ackbar”
Another explosion, knocking everyone down, his ears ringing.

“Why didn’t you join us?” they all asked with one voice.
Bryan jolted awake, the cold sweat pooled around him and fists clenched white.
I hope you all enjoy.
