End of Times – Ominous

Weeks have passed since that time I ran into the group of savages. Thinking I would had to take them out one by one, I was relieved to avoid that altogether. The odds were definitely not in my favor. Just before I thought a face to face with the weakest link was imminent, they all ended up moving in another direction. It felt like in the movies, when you miss an action scene by just a hair of luck. [Sigh]

Now I just have this bad feeling in my gut. What is going to happen next? Just a few days ago, the whole atmosphere changed. Days became muggier, the air became heavier and there is just this haze of green dust-fog-cloud falling upon me. I haven't seen a bird or heard a noise in days. No footprints, no activity. Nothing! Some canned foods are starting to pass their expiration dates and I haven't been able to find another lighter to replace my dying one. Go figure, who would have imagined it was going to be so hard to find a lighter?! But there's more than that, there is something else. The worse part? I don't know what it is.

Mold and vegetation is now growing on almost every object. Is this the way it's going to be? Is that the reason for this cloud that is all around me? Where should I head now? Should I stay in one place or just keep looking for her? So many questions………….. I need to stop. I need to sit. I need to rest…….

Suddenly I hear this rare sound. It is like a whistle. I haven't heard a thing in days, so what could this be? It started getting louder and louder, like a high pitch noise… and then suddenly it started sounding more like a roar. The wind is picking up, dust and small debris is blowing around. My gut feeling was right. While sitting I turn and look over my shoulder, and there it was. As if things weren't already bad, I watched and saw the biggest, scariest and meanest monster coming towards me, and my surroundings.

    Of course you have to keep looking for her. Having purpose is essential to the will to live. 🙂 Besides….we are all looking forward to the love scene. Assuming you can out run a tornado that is.

    maybe you'll get lucky and that tornado will clean the air for a while, or perhaps it will bring worse things your way. Go find shelter, quick!
