Title: Bloodied Darkness
Author: misfitmiss
Characters: Owen, Jack
Challenge: #218
Rating: PG

For tw100 challenge #218

Once the darkness descends, the world becomes a very different place. Find a bloodied corpse in the stark light of day and it looks disgusting, too harsh and brutalised. Find one by night and the shadows have already gotten to it, it isn't harsh and brutal, it's sad and a creeping feeling of horror starts to sneak up on you.

Owen stood over Jack as he lay face down in the coppery pool spreading around him, his heart pounding, bile clogging his throat. He whirled around at a slight noise, slipping in the blood.

But there was only the night.
