Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Conquer

Welcome to Friday! That wonderful time each week that signifies the end of work and the start of play. It also signifies that it's time for some Five Sentence Fiction! If you'd like to learn more about what it's all about, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. This week's prompt is conquer. Enjoy!

The grass was dead, sharp and prickly under his belly as he lay on the hill, looking down at the small town. Everyone was waiting behind him, safely on the other side of the hill and out of view. 
The dead were everywhere, their gangrenous limbs hanging limply at their sides as they shuffled about, jaws open, eyes wide, waiting.
Some would say move on, keep looking, it's too risky, but he wasn't one of them. He wanted this town and he was going to take it.
