The drain

Same as last year, he left for the site at sunrise to mark his new life as rewritten by a brute stranger that frightful night.

But today was different: the site was cordoned off, it was the hub of police activity.  They placed the sealed body into the ambulance: going by the single shoe above the bloodied drain, it was probably a female.

His wife and unborn son had been gunned down on that spot, only God knows what happened to the victim this time.

The world was slowly becoming uninhabitable:  dark, dirty, crawling with vermin similar to the drain.
