Bara Cailín 2: 42 ‘The Flowing Crowd’

Ahead of her Inteachán could see men gathered in coloured robes.

White and purple.

Cassocks. Capes. Collars.

Also military uniforms.

Dark blue. Epaulets. Bright medals.

Ceremonial swords.

And expensive suits. With men holding umbrellas for them to shelter under.

It was quite some procession in the driving rain.

Like a Saint’s Day of old.

Sacerdotal.

Private security guards wearing fluorescent jackets and earpieces controlled the crowd that flowed around the stones. The Crowley Baird Inc. logo was clearly visible.

‘Don’t push,’ they shouted above the roar of the rain.

‘Keep moving now.’

‘You can’t stop there.’

Mac stumbled as the crowd surged behind him.

Inteachán gripped his coat and held on for dear life.

Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.

    1. Hi, the first and last sentence are emphasised with a larger font size. It is something I started as an experiment when the series began and I have left like this since. I do think about changing it sometimes but haven’t decided yet.
