Home sweet home

 

 

The long abandoned city stood before them, the buildings falling into ruin. Where there should have been vegetation- gardens, parks, trees- there was nothing but dry earth. A few weatherworn dead trees stood like ghosts in the forgotten city.

 

A dry wind swept across the landscape bringing clouds of dust that got into eyes and throats.

 

The only signs of habitation were the huge metal doors set into the ground, covering underground entrances. Here and there ventilation shafts came up into the sheltered areas.

 

Connor looked around, frowning. “What is this place?” he asked.

 

Beside him, Matt smiled sadly. “Home.”

Thank you.
I've had this in mind for a while but the longer version never seems to get written.

I always wanted to write a longer version of this but it never seemed to get done.
