" Boston Asylum for the Mentally Insane has been shut down."
"Do you want me to start making dinner?"
"Letters will be sent home to the patients' family members as to what actions will be taken."
"Honestly, you could stand to turn the lights on. Why are you watching American news?" As the lights flickered on, I swiftly slammed the laptop shut.
"Worried about your mum?" With a kind smile, he sat beside me on the edge of our bed. "Danny's still home with her." That's what he thought it was?
"Oh...uh...yeah, I know." It had been no more than a month since I'd moved from Massachusetts to London with him...and I'd known all the while that I didn't need to worry about my mother.
"She's lucky you have a little brother."
"Are Danna and Kit home from school?"
"They're staying the night with a friend." Looking to him with a smile, I watched as he got to his feet.
"Well, then...I guess dinner will ha

My name is Roy, and I am the last hope for humanity. I am approximately seventeen years of age; my height is 6 feet and two inches; I weigh 134 pounds. Why am I telling you this information? Good question, but I have no answer for you.
Sitting on top of a fence-line, I see the undead crawling all over the place. There isn’t a way I can get rid of them all by myself, surely there has to be others too. I am nothing but a teen who was instructed to do as told, and my final given mission was to get rid of all the undead. Now that I think about it, who instructed me to do this?
My mind is boggled, maybe a walk with help me. I jump off the fence, and land swiftly on my feet. The gravel that crunches underneath my feet barely makes a sound, good. I don’t need the undead following me as I’m trying to clear my mind.
But just as I begin walking, I hear a child’s scream. I immediately turn around to see a little girl trying to run away from the undead that wanders behind h
Beyond the Blackened Wall: Chapter ThreeDay after day...I hadn't heard from my mother. It was late at night. Danna and Kit slept soundly in the room they shared, while Ethan and I lay awake in our bed. His head rested on my chest, and I had my arms around him. As I reached across him to turn off the lamp, he grabbed onto my hand, his green eyes boring into mine.Beyond the Blackened Wall: Chapter Three3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I'm just trying to turn off the light."
"Something's bothering you."
"Yeah, the fucking lamp."
"You know that's not what I mean." Frowning, he sat up and moved so he was sitting on my stomach, pinning my hands above my head.
"C'mon...it's too late for all this. I already took a shower, and the girls are already sleeping..."
"Pierce, stop it. You know what I'm talking about." Concern filled his gaze. "You've been acting nervous all week."
"Really, it's nothing..." Why was he shaking like that...?
"You've been calling home every day. I-I understand if you want to go home...but..." He tightened his grip on my hands.
"What?" I sat up quickly, pulling my hand

He was laid across the couch, his plate on his chest. I wasn't quite sitting down on the arm.
"Oh, come on. It can't hurt that bad."
"Shut up." Rolling my eyes, I leaned down and flicked his leg. "Maybe you should try it." And he stuck his tongue out at me, a smile on his face.
"I gotta call my mom real quick, okay?" As I finished eating and stood, I glanced back at him.
"Sure..." He watched with a slight frown as I grabbed the phone and walked off. Nervously, I dialed my mother's phone number. A week since that newscast had first aired...she would have gotten the letter by now...
"Hi, it's Pierce."
"Oh, hi, honey." She sounded nervous.
"You saw the newscast about the..."
"The asylum? Yeah."
"You get the letter?"
"I'm afraid not..." as she spoke, I stiffened nervously.
"They wouldn't send it to me...right...?" Closing the bedroom door, I pressed myself back against the wall.
Beyond the Blackened Wall: Prologue A soft chatter from above my head drew my attention. With a soft chuckle, I strode quietly up the stairs and down the hall. I could only imagine what kind of mess they'd made.Beyond the Blackened Wall: Prologue3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Danna? Kit?" Smiling calmly, I leaned into the room at the end of the hall. Frantically shushing each other, they shoved what looked to be an old scrapbook under the spare bed. "Hiding something?"
"N-no!" the older of the two sputtered. I couldn't held but laugh as I reached past defiant Danna and took the red, leather-bound book from beneath the bed.
"What? You thought you couldn't looked through this old thing?" But...when I opened it to the front page, I understood their concern. With a nervous frown, Kit leaned up towards me, pointing to the family picture from when I was a child...to the boy at my side, who they couldn't have recognized.

The cold waters slowly paralyzing his limbs, and the salt stung like burning needles in the wounds the flying debris had made.
He remained clutching the the plank, but he couldn't keep his body from cooling out.
Moira saw nothing, she only felt that the giant's hand, that had grabbed her, dragged her out of the water, laid he down in muddy ground, some slimy dirt she could not closer identify.
Light, thought she, I need light.
Fire was no option, everything, even the air was moist.
Now, she cursed herself for not using some modern technological apertures, a flashlight would have been a tremendous advantage now.
“Archon?” Asked she into the void. No response.
“Good.” A finger snap, and a little, yet bright flame emerged just below her hand. If she had been correctly informed, that guy was a normal human with no idea of the supe
