Commune of the Condemned

They shared everything together. Every scrap of bread; every whispered word; every somber smile. They were a community: they shared a goal, a common end. After all, the only thing worse than awaiting death was awaiting it alone.

BANG!

They fell, their wish for freedom finally, permanently granted.
