In a Blaze of…

Dust hanging heavy in the air choked him as he approached the police barrier. Everything rushed around him as he stood, silently watching. Firefighters did battle against the threatening flames. Officers and paramedics searched desperately for survivors. Giles knew they wouldn’t find any. The building that stood ageless and imposing as part of his life for as long as he could remember was now only a tomb.

This was the day Watchers have awaited for centuries. The day they were called to rise up and enter the fight. This was the Council’s day of glory.

Giles turned and walked away.
