“Alia hold him.” To better handle the big gun he was handed, Murdock gave the baby over to Alia then told her to stay close. “We’re getting the hell out of here! This place is infested with hostile presence.”
Leading the way for Alia and some other survivors, Murdock shot through all the ground obstacles that presented themselves in his path. He didn’t bother trying to hit any of the crows that were out of his reach, instead, he focused mainly on the zombies, trying to clear a path so he and the others could get to a suitable vehicle nearby.
“There is no end to these bastards! It’s as if they were waiting close by for this specific chance to gain entry inside the stronghold.” Murdock struggled to get to a suitable vehicle. The ones that he ran passed so far amid the chaos were either trampled or on fire.
The soldiers weren’t making victory easy for the legion of crows. Using every powerful weapon they had in their arsenal, they executed a barraged of explosive attacks against their feathery oppressors.
One of the crows on the front line became pissed that his comrades were falling from the skies in deadly droves. “KAAAW! Those damn bombers are killing our flock. Uri, take care of their weapon.”
“Just leave it to me! Caw! Caw!” Receiving the go-ahead from her commander, Uri, the feminine crow descended towards the military barracks.
“I’ll get rid of those filthy weapons.” Uri spread her wings mightily across the battlefield. Soon, she detached her feathers and sent them into the ethers. What the soldiers started witnessing next was a shocking occurrence.
“What the hell is happening now? Our weapons? They are…?”
The soldiers felt the grip of their weapons slipping away from their grasp, moreover, witnessed the metallic presence in the vicinity getting sucked into the sky; even some zombies who had some form of metal strapped around them and lead stuck inside their bodies were getting sucked up.
“Magnetic Pull!” Uri increased the attractive intensity of her gathering feathers. Her feathery sorcery was indeed potent. Heavy armoured tankers, Howitzers, knives, guns, cans, computers, buses along with an array of other metallic bodies were getting pulled into the huge sphere of crushed metals forming in the sky.
“That feathery thing in the sky is sucking up all of our weapons. What do we do now?”
“There is only one thing to do… RUN!”
Numerous soldiers began rushing to safety after witnessing the supernatural capabilities being exuded by the crow army. Murdock tried holding onto his gun but he eventually had to let it go. Some of the soldiers realized that it was too late for them to escape and attempted a suicide attack.
“I’m not going to die with my tail between my legs. Suck on this you bird bitches!” Before a metallic container filled with explosives could be sucked into the sky, this soldier removed the pin from a grenade and placed it into the ammo crate. Seconds later, he along with the crate was getting sucked into the magnetic focal point present in the sky. Immediately after making contact, a huge explosion formed that decimated the entire sphere along with several dozens of crows.
“Huh!” Looking above him as he made his way towards the collapsed barricade exit, Murdock saw countless birds on fire falling from the sky as well as deadly metallic debris.
“Everyone! Look out for those projectiles!” Murdock grabbed Alia’s hand and increased his dashing pace. By a slim brush of death, he missed getting impaled by burning metal.
“I didn’t crawl out of my mother’s vagina to experience this shit.” Successfully making it outside the barricade, Murdock ran towards a military tanker that fell out of the sky not too long ago. Surprisingly enough, it was in good shape and operational. He and the other handful of survivors dashed inside and drove as far away as they possibly could from the town centre. As they were leaving, an army of dead presences was on their way towards the town centre. I guess they were attracted by the explosive noises coupled with burning flesh.
…… Elsewhere in the eastern continents.
A couple of guards barged into Mr Chin’s private office while he was having a discussion with the world leaders via satellite feed and shouted, “Mr President! We’re under attack!”
“What do you mean?” Mr Chin was startled to hear this. “We’re under attack? Has the infected broken through our impenetrable fortress?”
“No, Mister President. They aren’t the ones who are attacking us.”
“Then what is?” The moment Mr Chin asked this question, a violent crow crashed through the sidewall. Its malefic presence caused Mr Chin to burp and fart simultaneously due to his heightened fear.
“Mr Present, follow me!” The security guards open fire at the crow that crashed into the office. Afterwards, they dragged their president to safety. “Sir, let’s get you to the bunker!”
“Yes! Yes! Hurry!” The now scared Mr Chin looked through the side windows of the so-called impenetrable facility as he was on his way to the bunker. What his eyes beheld was a catastrophic anomaly that he never would have expected in a million years. “Where did all those large birds come from?”
On the grassy lawn within the borders of the protected facility, the greenery was hardly recognized anymore; only an increasing dye of blood stained the land in rich red. The crows were viciously slaughtering the human resistance; eating their heads off, moreover, sucking their entrails out. Yet, they still weren’t satisfied.
“I need more meat!” A crow was unrelentingly chewing on the viscera of a dead human with such zeal that it didn’t notice the many snipers aimed at its head from 200-metres away atop a roof, or did it?
Milliseconds after the snipers fired their rounds at the greedy crow, they witnessed something spectacular. The crow vanished into thin air only to reappear instantly behind the small squadron of snipers.
“Will you satisfy me? Caw!” The greedy crow acquired the attention of the snipers; they were very surprised by its presence behind them.
With their enemy now being so close to them, the snipers switched to their handguns and began firing countless shots. However, they found it difficult to land a single bullet on its swift feathers.
“This one is super-fast! We can’t lock on to it at all!”
“Where the hell did these bird freaks come from?”
“We can’t get a clean shot!”
“Caw!” Getting tired of playing around with the elite snipers, the greedy crow made a bold swing with its wings and lopped all 6 of their heads off simultaneous. Without waiting for them to hit the ground, the crow hurriedly swallowed them. “Gulp!”
…… Elsewhere in the central continents
“AHHHH!” Prime Minister Noris was screaming for his life as he along with a small group of scientists and military personnel rushed inside a secure room just in time to avoid being spotted by the squadron of crows. “This entire country has gone to shit! The entire atmosphere outside is blanketed with vicious birds!”
“What would you have us do, Prime Minister Noris?”
“Ready the goddamn warheads! Prepared to fire on all selected locations.” Prime Minister Noris marked a couple of spots on the huge monitor inside the control room.
One of his allies wasn’t so please with one of the areas that he selected because he had family members residing in that area. “Prime Minister there are still a lot of uninfected people living in those areas.”
“I don’t give a flying shit!” Prime Minister Noris had lost his dignified countenance as well as his rational mind. It seems as if he had drastically aged by a decade or two.
“Do as I say; prepare the warheads for launch! Originally, we were going to use them as currier for our latest antigen to wipe out the infected zones, but I guess we’ll just have to use it on these damn birds instead. Now fire!”
“Yes sir!” The persons around the control panel pushed the activation buttons. A beeping sound was heard briefly. “The warheads are now deploying.”
Across the entire country, many underground compartments began opening up. They sent out myriads of deadly warheads towards the areas that Prime Minister Noris marked on the monitor. As if in sync, many other world leaders who had nuclear capabilities released their warheads almost at the same time. From an outer world perspective, the dark corners of the earth became illuminated with thousands of deadly weaponry.
The nuclear warheads reached the height of their ascended course, now they were turning to go downwards to impact their designated targets.
Back at the collapsed Monsterdam city where Murdock and the hand full of survivors were fleeing, Alia noticed a strange occurrence outside and informed the others. “What are those things coming from the sky?”
“You mean the birds?”
“No, look further up there.”
“Huh.” Murdock stopped the vehicle on a vacant roadway; he and the others got outside to get a better look at what was blindingly illuminating the evening sky. “I have a bad feeling about those shooting stars.”
“What do you think they might be, mister?”
“If I had to guess, I’d say those shooting stars are nuclear missiles.”
“Nuclear missiles! Then we better escape then!”
An elderly lady among them who managed to escape a near-death experience during the bombing of her hometown knew just how deadly one of those nukes could be. “It’s no use. We can’t outrun them. Only God can help us all now.”
“Caw! Caw! Caw!” During their coordinated raid on the human settlements, the crows noticed multiple falling presences from the sky that was way more potent than they could ever be. They tried to flee the blast radius but there was nowhere left in the sky for them to seek shelter. Many of them sought advice from their respective leaders.
“Emperor! Those humans have released their world-ending atomic bombs all over the globe! We’re all dead meat when those things detonate! Emperor can you hear me! Emperor, please answer me!”
Within his chain of thought, the Emperor knew that the current situation of nukes bombarding the planet was also a part of the long-ago prophecy, one that had been kept hidden from the majority of the younger crows. There was nothing he could do about it with his limited powers, thus he transmitted this message to all the surrounding crows, “Trust in All-Mother.”
Being in sync, every crow around the world calmed the flapping of their wings and put all their fate in the renowned All-mother. Billions of their collective consciousness exuded a formidable strength of manifestation which paved the way for the one and only true All-Mother to act.
Zooming in on the frosty environment of the North Pole and the South Pole of planet earth, a multidimensional crow was present simultaneously in both regions. Its almighty presence measured over 20 metres in height. She was darker than the presence of night aside from her beak and eyes that radiated energies brighter than the sun. This was All-Mother, the primordial essence that all known crows worshipped. The first embodied Prokeral God Crow!
All-Mother was aware of the current predicament that her daughter, Gaia was facing currently. Earth was set for annihilation in only a matter of seconds, yet, this realization did nothing to dampen her serene and calm disposition. Deciding to take action, she began spreading her glorious wings.
All-Mother’s wings were vastly widespread, moreover, very intimidating. Millions of her feathers started to separate and multiplied rapidly until they canvased 90% of the earth’s atmosphere. These special multidimensional feathers were seen only by her godly sight. Seconds after deployment, time seemed to have stopped in the entire galaxy. For a split instant, the sun’s radiance dimmed to a darkened state and rekindled with more explosive brilliance!
With the entire galaxy’s time/space in the plume of her feathers, All-Mother roused her powerful throat chakra and uttered, “Narak-Hak, Narak-Shak, Narak-Tak, Narak-Narak, Akmi-Toga!”
A most powerful frequency was unleashed across the entire globe. Time in the earthly perspective restarted. Every living creature was impacted by what All-Mother had released.
Murdock and the others fell to their knees. “This sensation… what is this presence that I’m feeling?”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I’m paralyzed? What in God’s name is happening to us?”
While the humans were baffled, only the crows were aware of what was going on. “There is no mistaking it. This presence is the All-Mother of Crows!”
“The All-Mother! Do you mean she’s here? But why can’t we see her?”
“Emperor, do you have any idea why this is?”
The Emperor said the first thing that came to his mind, “The All-Mother is everywhere and everything.” Shortly after saying this, the many nukes that were frozen in mid-air suddenly vanished into thin air followed by a strange anomaly that even the crows weren’t expecting.
A dark energy source began shooting upwards out of the mouths of the surviving humans as well as the infected zombies. Every living creature on the planet was experiencing this phenomenon; the dogs, cats, ants, mice, birds, butterflies, etc.
The dark energies were being sucked into a multidimensional portal. This phenomenon lasted only for a brief 30 seconds. Afterwards, everything seemed to have returned to normal, however, the crows could feel the inevitable change permeating the atmosphere.
“All-Mother, she’s done it! My fellow crows, a new era has begun!”
“Caw! Caw! Caw!” All around the globe, the crows were celebrating in unity; basking in their victory. The era of human dominion over mother earth has shifted into the new paradigm of empowered crows.
