“Don’t why but this one took a dark turn this week. Hope you like it!”
I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:

Passage of Death
I always got lumbered with running corpses from the police morgue to the mortuary.
Tonight, I was transferring a Jane Doe. No clue who she was. She’d been murdered though.
This was a standard night until —bang!
Something exploded under the hearse.
Grinding to a halt, I jumped out expecting flat tyres at least. I saw metal and cogs in a heap. I’d struck an engine block. The hearse was toast.
I told Jane to stay put and took out my phone.
A shadow loomed.
The crowbar struck my neck.
“Jane’s coming with me!” he said.
The darkness consumed me.
Thanks for reading my friends.
