tomorrow when the war began


The way I see it, these are our choices. One: we can sit here and do nothing. Come out when the war’s over. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not too good at doing nothing. Two: we can all try to be heroes. Rescue our families from the Showgrounds. But like Dr. Helpful said, we’d probably pay the price. Or three: we can go out there, at night. Guerilla style. Using hit and run tactics and take back Wirrawee.
                                         Maybe even help win this thing.

It scared me, really scared me, but I couldn’t escape it. It loomed over me, a silent dark creature growing out of my feet. I knew that if I reached out to feel it I would feel nothing. That’s the way shadows are.

“They were the beats of my heart, the skin of my body, the breath that entered my mouth and nostrils. They were the beautiful friends who had taught me that love was the life-force.”
