Undisclosed location outside Washington D.C. 26 September 1983.
"Mr. Jones?" one of the military officers in the control room muttered, his voice barely audible amidst the alarms. "NORAD...their last transmission said that there's no way to stop the nukes."
Damn you, Ivan... America sneered in his head he attempted give an assuring, though somber smile. "How much time do we have, Captain Richards?"
"About 10 minutes at most, sir. Possibly less. President Reagan should be far out of D.C. by now. But I can't say the same for everyone..."
The middle-aged man kept droning on in forced professionalism as the panic all around them gradually turned to exhausted, silent resignation. Before them, the screens displayed ominously glowing lines and dots moving ever closer to their targets. As Alfred tried to straighten out the bomber jacket he still had on over his suit, he recalled something on what his s
Dancing Lights -UKPH-There she stood with her bare feet nuzzled on the sand, staring intently on the ocean, not minding the cold ocean breeze or the saltwater tickling her toes. The leaves in the nearby forest rustled as the wind went along, and the stars above her shone as bright as ever. The town was asleep, and those foreign ships were anchored quite far from the island. The only sounds you could hear were the whistling winds, the rustle of the trees, and the waves which continued to dance upon the shore.Dancing Lights -UKPH-4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

A voice drifted quietly through the silent, still air of the snow-covered churchyard.
“Wandering child, so lost, so helpless
Yearning for my guidance.”
It was soft and placating; gentle and soothing. It was all tenderness and affection. Nothing in its tone gave me reason to be frightened, yet it was too familiar and too subtly influential for me not to quake in terror.
“Father?” my heart hoped in hushed eagerness.
“Phantom?” my mind whispered with panicked recognition.
Who was it? My mind could not separate one from the other. One offered safety and happiness, the other capture and living-death. For so long, Yao’s angelic voice was my answered prayer: the voice of my father himself from beyond Heaven. So long had it been placed with my memories of Father that I could not untangle the ties of the past from the perils of the present. Though I knew Yao was only danger and fear,

The Filipina let out a tired sigh and instead looked out the car window. Why is it so hard to make him answer these kinds of questions???
"Ummm no reason. I just wanted to see if the stuck-up gentleman has a heart."
The Englishman driving the vehicle let out a huff.

A 1983 Doomsday Tale Through A Nation's Eyes.
Along the old Bavarian Border Region. 1994.
It was by no means the first time Austria paid a visit to the lands bordering his own blood-relatives. In another time, it would have been conventional, perhaps uneventful. But no matter how many times he tried convincing himself, nothing had been routine. Not anymore. This particular trip however seemed different. Indeed he had barely even changed from his field uniform when word came of it.
"Do you think it's another band of barbarians?" he asked the driver as their battered jeep moved closer towards the increasingly crowded refugee camp, a peculiar lone bird flying overhead. It had since become a common sight to find such places along the frontiers that separated the Austro-Swiss Union from the surrounding wastelands. It was not so long ago when they were forced to close the borders as those fleeing Doomsday’s shadow threatened to plunge

Somewhere in Sopron. 1989.
It seemed more tiring than usual, Julia thought as she sat by the window, coughing a little as she toyed around with a worn-out flute. Anything to keep her mind off from the nagging exhaustion, really. It must have been that trip to the nurse again. Or that hide-and-seek game with the other orphans. Or might have been that pack of rations from those soldiers. But then again, she knew better. At least I still had fun! she assured herself with a smile. With deft hands, she gingerly lifted the chipped off mouthpiece close to her.
Outside, she caught a glimpse of the street crossing past the orphanage. Many of the buildings across from her were either grimy or broken down, the worse ones looking more like they were held together by iron planks. Only a few withered window-side flowers and the partly burnt Firewatch Tower not far off were left to suggest that this pl
