The Day The Darkness Came (An Original Group Story)

Imagine a world where even a slither of sunlight touching your skin meant instant death, a world where heartless gangs of broken survivors patrolled the streets after dark, picking off anyone gullible enough to stray into their path. Where Feral dogs, wolves, bears run rampant in the street and all remaining food is guarded by ruthless killers.
This is the world that four normal teenagers have been plunged into.
This is the world of the future.
