Tonight I am doing something a bit different than my usual post. There is a new post apocalyptic event starting on August 17th called Thereafter and they are having a contest along with Blogger & Vlogger Network, but this is no just take a photo kind of contest. they said they would like to read about our adventures so I wanted to share it with all of you. I have not written a story since school so please be kind with your comments.
I wanted my photo to be the last chapter of the story, I hope you like it and I apologize in advance for any punctuation abuse.
I was growing weary of this life, tired of all the death and destruction, but that all changed when he walked in. At first I didn’t trust him, figured he was just another guy from the gangs that had taken over in the aftermath, but he was persistent in proving he wasn’t and before I knew it I was falling for him, I never meant to.
In this world there is no happily ever afters, but with him he made me believe there was still hope, made me feel things that I thought were long gone and to think about a future that was destroyed that day. For the next year we ate, slept and fought together, we never left each other’s side and I was completely in love with him, but then in the blink of an eye he was gone.
They took him from me all over something that didn’t even mattter. Why did he have to pick that moment to fight back, it was 3 against 1 and they were well armed. All he had was his father’s old revolver and it didn’t work right half the time. It happened so fast and all I could do was watch from across the parking lot, I couldn’t even get to him before he hit the ground. I ran so hard and fast to get to him, I could hear myself screaming, but all I kept thinking was please let this be a bad dream.
Please wake up now! Wake up and find him standing there grinning that silly grin but it wasn’t a dream. I looked up and the one that pulled the trigger was over me pointing the gun at my head. I screamed at him to go ahead and do it, I had nothing now so why not leave this terrible world. I begged him “just shoot me” but all he did was laugh and walk away. I fell to the ground and cried til I eventually fell asleep.
The next morning I buried my love, saying goodbye to him was the hardest thing I have ever done, but before I left I made a promise to him that I would find those 3 men no matter how long it took and I would rip their hearts out just like they ripped mine out…………
