It’s a rainy Saturday in November, cold and dismal, the kind where everyone stays inside and seeks warmth. The city is bustling as everyone hurriedly rushes from place to place under umbrellas, rain boots sloshing through dirty puddles. You’re sitting in your apartment, staring out over the mad rush o...

The morning air was only slightly chilly when I woke up, the day of Halloween dawning not so bright and early. I stretched my limbs before hopping off the bed, silence greeting me downstairs.

The siren cried out for help, begging God for a mercy he was unwilling to give. Everybody knew the end was coming. Washington had sounded the alarm as soon as the missiles were detected, but nobody wanted to believe the end was near.           From my suite, I watched the cars race down...

The house was the same as when she had left it. The long strands of ivy had continued to claw their way up the stones of the home. The backyard lay ridden with weeds, accompanied by some ancient farming equipment that lay scattered about. The sun’s rays fell softly upon her face, but as she tipped her...
