"Where are they coming from?" She Screamed. The window was black, covered with buzzing flies.
"Hurry!" He shouts at her. "There's no time to waist."
He took her by the hand as he led her up the latter into the attic. The buzzing sound grew louder with the oncoming storm of flies that broke through the window. After climbing up the latter, he was able to shut the ceiling door before the flies had a chance to get through.
The flies slammed against the door like an oncoming freight train. He has to put his foot down to keep the door from opening.
She ran to a corner of the room where insect backpack sprayer lays. She grabbed it, flung it around her shoulders, and fastened the straps around her waist. "Those mother-fuckers are going to get what they deserve," she said holding up the bichromated tough metal lance.
"No. That is what made them this way in the first place."
Drips of water that had seeped through the moldy roof slashed on the ground and filled the air with a musty odor.
"What do you know about this that you haven't told me?"
"I've been watching them," he said latching the lock of the door. "You need to count them. All of them!! Best to hide them behind the house."
"Watching WHO!?! count them..." She raised the nozzle, trembling and in a state of confusion.
"No time. Let's go."
The flies had found their way into the room by squeezing through cracks of the rotting wood. They darted right at her, ignoring him.
As she squeezed the trigger, spraying the room full of toxins, the flies landed on her. They extended their labellums, spit enzymes on her and within second bubbles started to form on her skin. She screamed, which did nothing to help her.
He, hardly able to see from the poisonous gas getting sprayed in his eyes, grabs her and leads her to the window where he shoves her out onto the roof. Broken glass cuts them as they climb out. From there, he leads her to the edge and then jumped down onto a trampoline.
He runs with her hand in his to where the box is kept. It isn't there where he left it. With the flies hot on their tale, they book it to the car.
Frost covered the windshield of their busted up vehicle. They barely made it out of the room alive and now they were going to have to drive through the snow. He could hardly see what was in front of them.
The toxic gas had made his eyes begin to bleed.
She had huge bumps all over her body that hurt her every time they hit a bump in the road.
He said, "It'll be okay. It'll be okay."
"No, it won't." Her body was changing rapidly. First, wings shot from out of her back, then her head became like that of a fly.
Not being able to see, he turns his head towards her and grabs her hand. "No. It will. I just have to ..." He stops the car. No use going forward if he can't see what is in front of him. "You're going to have to dr..."
He is cut short when the mouth of the newly transformed fly sucks his head off.

I've really enjoy this contest because there are people here who've actually gone to classes to learn how to write haiku's; so if you want, you also can learn how to write quality haikus from reading the comments and critiques they and others give.
50-word Challenge - This is an interesting challenge and very challenging to say the least. You only get fifty words to tell a story or a vignettes. Here is a great post that will explain the difference between the two concepts. Good luck, Brave Story Writer!
