About the challenge: Each Tuesday, Kat Myrman will provide a photo prompt. The mission, if any writers should choose to accept, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less.
Here is my entry:

The first wave of arrows muted the frontline’s alarms. Then, everyone was blind to the tsunami of slaughter.
In a heartbeat, an entire community flatlined.
Character count: 274
