The patrol car turned into a well-known road
darkness had fallen
ahead the headlights shone on a bent shape
that turned their way
it had hideous features and glowing red eyes
they found hard to analyze!
Uncertain what it could be got out to investigate
instantly it ran up the building side
seconds later gone from the policemen’s view
leaving them perplexed at this feat
concerned at the threat saw the bundle so still
certain it was a fresh kill!
Approaching they could see it was a woman
assuming she was dead
went to take a closer look when she stood up
surprisingly spoke clearly
said took wrong turning heard a commotion
what it was had no notion!
Traumatized she was in fear of her own being
conveyed her to a casualty unit
as a precaution in case of any physical injuries
but psychological more a concern
something about her demeanor seemed odd
a wary path they both trod!
While the doctor examined her they waited
a female colleague had been called
reluctantly lingered feeling all was not well
almost expecting trouble
as they thought it a commotion occurred
as disturbing noises were heard!
Before taking a step the girl flashed passed
ripping the curtains down
knocking them and nurse off their feet
the doctor now on the floor
slowly sat on the gurney shaken and dazed
again their anxiety raised!
No marks seen on her yet had a vacant stare
she must be infected but how
both had been in contact yet felt alright
other questions came to mind
radioed base to warn them of the danger
this situation a life changer!
Tried keeping others away to secure the space
but the doctor lunged at them
managed to avoid her but a patient was hit
throwing him through partition
the officers gave chase then from overhead
a flying beast with wings spread!
The older officer thrust violently to the ground
by an insect like creature
over his face the saliva dripped into his mouth
his partner fired at the beast
who rapidly flew into the black sky unharmed
it seemed the officer was charmed!
But within a short time span had that odd look
his disposition had changed to
standing up walked away ignoring the shouts
of his friend and colleague
nearby the two women in the shadows waited
for the new beast just created!
Their metamorphoses had begun they departed
as the lone police officer
stood knowing his suspicions were confirmed
behind him police sirens wailed
now to his superiors he would have to explain
monsters had entered our domain!
Whether there was a future hung on his words
above the beasts hovered like birds!
