The door to my cabana crashed open, I screamed as a man ran inside backwards, dragging a body through the sand. “What the hell!”
“We need to hide!” He whispered harshly and slammed the cabana door shut. The smell of blood hit my nose, and I realised the body in the sand was bleeding. My eyes focused, and I realised his entire foot was missing!
“Oh my god, he needs a doctor!” The man took his belt and made a tourniquet for his bleeding friend. “What happened?” I asked.
He looked up, fear in his eyes, “The flamingos are back.”
