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

"You're kidding me, aren't you?"
"No, Maria, I am not. Why do you keep on asking me anyway?"
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.
"What, you don't think I have a heart?"
"Isn't that why I was checking?"
Before he was able to say anything in return, he was interrupted by Maria's giggles. "You are so fun to bug, Arthur! But really " She inched her way closer, her face a few mere inches away from his. "Have you ever "like" liked anyone?"
Arthur looked nervously at her, his cheeks turning scarlet with her closeness. His companion didn't seem to mind since her head was preoccupied by that one question she's been trying to get him to answer since the beginning of the trip.

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

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

The day was beautiful. Cherry blossoms bloomed in the yard, a light breeze scattering some on green grass and landing in a small koi pond. The fish jumped and swam to the landing petals, thinking it was food, but were quickly bored and left. The forest around the small house was swaying lightly.
Despite the beautiful scenery, not all was well in the Honda household. Kiku was a young man, honorable to his family. Many young girls liked him but he didn’t like any of them back. His parents thought it was time for him to remove is bachelor status.
Kiku walked through the paper screen doors, looking curiously at the people kneeling at the small table. His parents were laughing along with a pretty young girl. She wore a light pink kimono decorated with golden flowers and a light blue waist band tied in a bow in th

"Good morning, counselors!" you cried cheerfully, carrying in trays of coffee cups. The counselors bid you a good morning as you handed them their coffees and rushed to sit down in your little mini office. You were pretty much the donut boy of the main office of your school. Whatever the administration wanted, you got it for them. You didn't mind; it kept you away from your (least favorite elective) class.

"I'm sorry, what?" He looked to the loud-mouthed American, who looked annoyed. This happened daily. The (H_C) haired teen would stare at Arthur during lunch, ignoring everything around him. Arthur was a handsome blonde Brit with emerald green eyes and thick eyebrows. The male found his personality cute, though everyone had found him rude. The Englishman had a short temper, making sarcastic comments and yelling at others when he was even a tad-bit annoyed. Surprisingly he was a gentleman too.

"Once again on behalf of my countrymen, we are grateful for this meeting Mr. Honda," the pale-looking officer said curtly in his native language as he stood up. The other delegates with the man were considerate enough to bring along Ainu guides to translate. Not that the Nation really needed it. Still, despite the almost visible tension radiating in the room, it was at least a sign that these visitors weren't barbarians.
