End of Times - Mayhem

Today is a rare day, I could see the sun.  It gives me a sense of hope. An idea that spells that there could still be a future. It gives me a will to scavenge and search for food and ....... to search for her, my love! 

But the sun also shined with chaos and destruction.  According to my calculations, the number of people immune to this gas attack is close to 1.2 million .... all over the world, most of them probably in China, just based on population.  That does not include those that were prepared to survive it with gas masks and/or oxygen. Neither does it include those damn political figures, who might be safe in some bunker somewhere.  What makes their life more precious than mine? Nothing! But they are still in a secure place ... damn them!

Taking all that into account, today I discovered a group of survivors, not more than 4 or 5.  They were still burning and wrecking whatever they saw fit. Loud and obnoxious, with not a care in the world (who would at this point). They acted like a pack;  did not seem human anymore, but like a group of savages. I can't trust them, I don't want to! I must not let them see me, find me.  They won't accept me, they would kill me!

I should avoid them, but they are in my way.... on my path to my destiny... in my way to find her.  I could also use some new air filters for my mask. Should I ask nicely? No way!!  It's them or me. I had never being in this position before....... I have made a choice.... there is only one way.  And.......

I will not be killed!

End of Times - Day 38

I can't believe it has been more than a month.  I am feeling tired and discouraged.  I have not seen one human alive in all this time. Understandable? Yes, but nonetheless depressing. See, this gas kills 99.99% of all humans, and most animals.  Only 0.015% of the human population is immune.

I don't know if I am immune, and I am in no hurries to find out. If you have a gas mask and now how to use it you can survive.  Your body will only be able to resist the gas for 1 - 2 hours at a time without a mask.  If you go more than 2 hours exposed the damage is irreversible. Under an hour you will feel very bad, but your body can recover if you drink lots of fluid. It won't affect your skin but it will destroy your lungs, then your arteries and later your brain and heart. That means my mask is permanent, I am only able to take it off to eat, and clean it. And if you eat, make it quick! 

I have traveled over 300 miles now, miles of devastation, desolation and sadness.  They are no buildings without damage, not a soul in the streets. Rioting, stealing and vandalizing were just a waste of time. People should have worried about being safe, preparing; instead of ill advised looting.  But not many people knew what was about to come. They should have listened to more than just the news.  You needed insight, almost secret clearance!

The gas is still so dense outside after all this time.  I can only hope, that like a fog, it starts clearing out.  It is not easy to tell night from day sometimes, much less have a sense of time. It is HOT every single moment. I am surprised of how tasty Pork n Beans can be when you are really hungry.  And the importance of a can opener.  I carry that, a torch lighter, and a small hatchet in my pack. Traveling light is essential, the rest I pick up on the way.  They are still plenty of supplies everywhere, meaning not many people were prepared, much less survived. 

I got to her hotel, searched every inch of it.  She wasn't there. If work had not sent her on that business trip, maybe, maybe it would have been easier to find her whereabouts.  If we could at least still fly, I am sure I won't be bitching about plane delays. 

I hope she got my last text: "Find a gas mask. A good one. And do it fast!"

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

Sometimes you feel like things are weird.... how is this possibly happening?  Like things are in a flux, upside down... but even then, stuff is not spilling.  Your mind goes: What in the World?!?!?! Or the most common What the Hell.... or WTF? 

Just keep on keeping on... this too shall past!
