random flash fiction thing LOL

by Suki | Score: 4300

A dark mass of clouds gathered within the sky, inviting a bitter wind to howl amongst the chaos of the storm. The terrified cries of those attempting escape are whipped away into clouds as they slowly reached down in a deadly reach towards the earth. Allium struggled against the strong breeze as those around him ran. The groan of the clocktower made him freeze as he looked up. Wind and stone pummeled against the concrete that held his beloved home up. His stuff! With a racing heart, he fled up the stairs. He threw himself towards his desk, scattering his stuff together in a flurry of arms and legs. He grabbed some foods, such as bread, soy sauce packets, and loaded them into his leather bag. As he reached for his glasses, he noticed a letter. 

"Don't open it until you're ready... You'll know when it's time."

Azure's words rang clearly through his head. As the clocktower groaned, he reached forwards and grabbed it within his sweaty palms.

"Going somewhere?"
He froze. Karma.
He turned slowly, seeing her stand tall, her green eyes alight with a venomous rage he had never seen anyone possess.
"This tower is about to fall, Karma. Please, just let me past and we can both get out of this alive." He begged. He hated to beg in front of the person he once called his friend, but he needed to get out. 

In less than a second, Allium found himself being pinned against the wall.
"Give me the antidote, allium." She hissed.
Allium closed his eyes and tried to tilt his head away from her rotten breath as it washed over his face.
"Never," he snarled, kicking out her legs and catching her in the shin. She stumbled back, and Allium fled forwards, grabbing the cure and his beloved necklace in his hands on the way out.
