into the pathway only half a mile away.
" Here grab my hand, they'll tear us to pieces if they catch us ".
Cassie reached out for his hand, tears were flowing freely down her cheeks, the top of her military uniform spotted darkly with wet spots.

" Here Akane, " croaked Liu from beneath the wreckage of their home " follow my voice, i am to your left, i fear i shall die my love, i can feel
the blood soaking through my clothes, hurry Liu, so that i can hold you again before i go ".
Akane reached his side and fell to her knees beside her beautiful husband and began scrabbling at the wreckage that covered his broken form, " dont
leave me Liu ",she pleaded, salty tears running from her scorched eye's, " I need you ".
Liu didnt answer.
Poison crept through the streets of Tel Aviv.
" I will not pray anymore Father, what good has prayer done us now ", yelled Aaron defiantly, though muffled through his gas mask.

Violence ran rampant through the streets of London.
" Over there ", yelled the leader of the pack, " I saw the slimy bastard run down that street " they took off in hot pursuit.
" Don't let them get away ", roared another voice.

Despair hung like a pall over the streets of Baghdad.
Abdul ran down the broken street, a small child clutched in his arms.
" Just breathe, precious, dont speak, just breathe ", he whispered as he ran.
" I'm scared ", the child whispered back, his breathe broken like the streets upon which his father ran " I cant feel anything, why cant i feel

" Because the worlds on fire sweety, and i dont think they want anyone to see them with the matches in their hands ".
They both looked out the window at the same time, the tear that fell from the mothers eye evaporated as the blast wave hit.
