Prologue

Submitted: August 24, 2016

January 1914, the outskirts of northern London stands De Clare Manor, home of the Allister family, Francis Allister, his wife Caroline Allister, their 5 children, Francis Jr & Nickolas (twins) of 21, Maaria of 20, Alexander of 17 and the youngest daughter of 13, Jasmine. Francis is aware of what is coming 6 months prior to the war, though nobody else seems to be concerned. Maaria and Jasmine prepare for the presidential ball where newly appointed mayor of London Sir Charles Johnston celebrates his new position. Oldest twin Francis Jr, is already in the ballroom welcoming guests, whilst his twin Nickolas trifles with a daughter of a politician in his room. They all eagerly await the arrival of their brother, and youngest son, whom they have not seen since Christmas as he arrives from expulsion from Cambridge. His arrival seems to change everything.
