Prisoners of Utopia Gone. They’re all gone. Nothing left, but a deserted, extinct, and lifeless blanket of ash. It looks as if it were the middle of January and a fresh coat of snow had just fallen. Flakes of ash still float so fluently toward the ground. It’s almost beautiful – almost. As I wander through the blanket of ash my mind goes back to when I was young; the stories the other kids would tell me about the Concentration Camps during World War II, of how the Jews were treated and all the abuse and torment they had to go through. It must have been hell; but this, – this was worse than hell. Ultra-Thermonuclear bombs had been dropped all over. These weren’t just your usual atom bombs.

He proclaims that he’s starting over, and that the few people who’s lives he did spare, that they are the start of something “truly amazing.” That this new world is Our Utopia, and we have to hold on to that.

She tastes warm and a little like peaches. I pull away and touch her face softly. “I love you.” I smile. “I love you.” she replies as she sets her head back on my chest. “Alex?” I looked up to see Ben standing next to the ’22 Ford pick-up. “It’s time to go.” he says. I just nod my head and look back down toward Ellie. “Hey, you ready?” “No.” she half smiles. “Me either.” I laugh, kissing her again.
