Episode VI – Beyond The Glasses

“Good morning,” I woke to the warm words of the older man as he knelt down and handed me a cup of coffee.

And for just one moment, I forgot that the world around us was ash and wreckage.

But for only that one moment, as the black rain was starting to fall once more as they packed up their camp.

One of the ladies, the friendlier one, was combing her son’s hair…

While the other watched me with suspicious eyes as she packed, sawed off shotgun never to far from her.

I smiled slightly at her, to no avail…

…if anything, it made her more suspicious.

“Good morning,” spoke the gentle voice of the little girl, who had somehow snuck up behind me.

Though she was 9 or 10, she was holding a ragged looking stuffed pink bear tightly.

The innocence in her eyes…

“Well hello there,” I spoke, as I stood, and rolled up the blankets they had afforded me.

“What’s their name?” I questioned about the bear, as I pinched one of its’ ears.

“Seymour…” she replied, as she gazed at me softly.

I knelt down next to her, “What about yours?”

“JENNY! Leave the nice man alone,” her mother called, dropping the comb she was using on her son in anxiety.

“Go on,” I spoke, and she walked away, grasping tightly onto her bear, and peering back at me with a bright smile.

Somehow this group had survived just fine on their own… And I would leave it that way, I moved on alone.

Episode 4 – Machines

When I woke, the old man had gone…

…”Hmm…”

I gather my things, and moved on.

The weather was definitely strange…

Midday brought a warm, black rain.

My instincts told me it wasn’t nuclear…

…but strange none the less.

A few hours later, I came across some blackened trees, and some sort of  half melted factory…

Before I knew, I saw two… No, three Robots.

Military I think…

High end A.I…

…chances were that they weren’t under man’s control…

…but instead, their own.

Man of Steel I wasn’t…

…not anymore.

I took cover behind a large burned tree, and waited.

Darker and darker the night fell…

…what were they doing in there.

I decided to take a look… foolish.

I found a back window and peeked inside…

…they were building some sort of… land transport.

Something more than a tank.

Suddenly, a blue light eye caught view of me, and I ran…

Ran so hard… Ran as hard and fast as my now mortal legs could carry me.

“Don’t Look Back… Don’t Look Back”

I told myself.

But it didn’t matter…

Before I knew it, they were upon me…

…grounding my jaw into the ash, dirt, rock ground.

I tried my hardest to escape… to no avail.

“HUMAN… USELESS…” one of them spoke, then released me.

I sat up, my face hurting, and watched their shadowy images disappear back to where they had come from.

I grinded my teeth, and gave them a stare…

“Heat Vision no more…”
