Sample text:

They crashed through the front door; shards of wood flew from the shattered jamb. He turned to see suits charging the room, tasers drawn. They moved fast. A dog blocked the entrance. Its lips curled back, saliva drooped from pointed teeth. 

Their voices were loud, threatening. Shouting at him to get down, on the floor: Now! Quick! Down! Down! Down!

Ignoring the orders, an elderly man rushed for the window. Rage bubbled inside the man’s veins. The body was rigid and taken by surprise he could not move fast enough.

Someone grabbed the old man around the neck from behind and drove him to the floor. Landing hard on the carpet, a rug-burn set his cheeks alight. He fought against gripping hands holding him firm, fighting for a space to maneuver, and madly searching for an opportunity to break free. His arms and legs went wild, lashing out at anyone close. His shin struck the coffee table, knocked magazines to the floor. A cup of hot coffee skidded to the table’s edge, but did not tip off.

They knew not to shoot the body.

They had learned.

The men kept his back pressed to the floor. One pointed a taser at him. The man punched and kicked the best he could, until the cold steel of a gun was pushed hard against his temple. The old man laughed, it was weak and croaky but the message was clear. In response a knee was forced against his neck, forcing his head hard against the carpet.  

The old man’s mouth gaped open. A shadow rose from the parted, chapped lips, black and without form like an elongated blob.

A sponge of water filled the mouth.

Water. Its one true enemy.
