She pulled her hat down and walked right out of the house. She opened her phone and ignored the scratches on the screen. She just wanted to see the
time. The time was 16:53, but what caught her eyes the most was the date. The 31th of October, 2019. One year after that dark day. One year after the
horror. It still felt like yesterday.
The sun was sinking in the sky towards the horizon, like a ship into the seas. She pulled her large hat down some more, her face safely hidden in the
She glanced around as she walked by. The streets were rather normal. The usual car wrecks on each corners, nothing unusual for these insane years.
There was no one walking around in disguises, though. No one hunting for candies, no decorations, no one partying. Even though it was halloween, the
streets were just as they were in any other days.
And there was a very good reason for that. She swiftly turned around a corner; calmly making her way to the store.
There have always been those who wanted to feel superior to others, and this is why today was shrouded in this sinister atmosphere. An entire global
population, corrupted. This was no world for the trusting, for the romantic, for the naive. This was a world of concrete, of darkness, of survival.
The Alpha Star - as this elistic group liked to call itself - made sure of that. They had turned mankind into revolutionary forces; before robbing
them of their humanity.
She remembered that day when humanity was stolen from her. A shiver ran down her spine, she dismissed the thought.
She soon reached the store. She walked right in. It was in ruins; maintenance was obviously not the priority of whomever owned it. Luckily the
refrigiration system was still working, albeit badly. She opened the door and found what she wanted - more by the smell than with her vision. It was a
neatly packed pound of meat. She inspected it and then walked to the counter.
"Is there anyone around? Arianna? "
She looked at the back doors.
"I just want to know if this piece of meat has been in contact with any type of silverware - I am alergic to silver. "
After a while she decided to simply place the amount onto the counter - twenty gold coins. She glanced at the chocolate bars with disgust. No one
wanted those anymore these days. Finally she simply walked back out of the store and to the park nearby. Her dress weakly floated in the cold breeze
with each steps she made in the growing, ireegularly-cut grass.
She hid inside the lillte forest patch. After a minute there she emerged out again - in her hand she was holding the now-empty package which used to
contain the raw meat she had bought.
She disposed of the rubbish into the garbage bin and made her way back home. She admired the skyscrapers, most of them now empty because of the
population's inability to tolerate the presence of one another. Funny how efficient the elite's Project Escaping God had been. She kept on walking.
Better get home quickly before dusk.
She could hear the population waking up - the nocturnal part of it, anyway. She could smell the city's air become heavier, more sinister.
She inserted her key in the doorknob. The sun was already setting - a cold sun, unable to heat this cold place with its pale rays. It was shining its
last lights, from its lowest angle possible before its disappearance. It illuminated her face. She winced. She showed her teeth at the sun, her
wolfish muzzle snarling for a brief instant. Her yellow eyes glowing in the dying light.
She pulled her hat further down; before finally walking back in.
