The Morning After
Morning sun shone through the lace curtains, sending a shaft of light across the floor. Sarah sat on the bed, staring at the little bits of dust that swirled through the rays, dancing and twirling into nothingness, while emptiness filled her completely.

She turned her gaze to the window and stared at the orange glow in the distance. The war had begun and she could see their destiny written in the ashes that were swirling around the ruins in downtown LA.
