End of Times – The First Night

What we had all feared began to take place. There was no safe place anymore, there was no peace or hope of it. The bombing and the looting, the fires and the screams…. but worst of all The Gas.
That gas designed to eliminate every threat, any danger, hazard or menace….. in other words, everything and everyone.

I am not sure when it started or by whom, but it was already here. No time to prepare, nowhere to run. What to do now? Armed with my mask, the only protection from the gas (if used properly) I rushed to the streets. Not knowing what to expect, not sure what I would encounter or face, with no idea where to go. The only thing I know is I could not stay still and…….. I had to find her!

What I found outside was pure chaos…. oblivion…. disaster…. destruction…. all that was…. The first night
