Laila woke up from her cozy bed to a warm summer day, She got up and went to the bathroom.
She looked in the mirror, messy hair, but not much to fix, 15 minutes later she was ready to go to work at the local youth centre but as she was going to get the door her phone rang.
Her boss Tom said “don’t come today, we are shutting down due to unforeseen events”
“why? What happened?” Laila asked,
“Laila, you should look at the news, and go to the designated shelter” responded Tom worriedly, and hanged up the phone.

“we just have that old thing we just have to make people feel safe” thought Laila

She was puzzled, the youth centre had not closed ever since she could remember, and as far as she knew, it had been 50 years since they had built the nuclear shelter and she just looked at it as something useless that brought down the value of her home.
Something monumental had to be under way.

She went back the hallway and into the living room and tuned on the television, She was shocked.

“The ongoing war between Iran and Saudi Arabia had taken an ugly turn, and has brought in the world into war” said the telly in a breaking news announcement.
“The United States, Saudi Arabia and its allies is now at war with Russia, Iran and its allies” said the reporter.
“Take shelter” was announced in red

Suddenly Laila’s phone started ringing, she looked at it, it was an amber alarm but she couldn’t believe what she was reading
>>>Incoming nuclear ICBM, go to your nearest government shelter
