It has been 20 years since the war started. I am only 28 but even so I still have the hope that my father would soon return home. But he has no home to come to. My mother and I lived in what use to be New York City. Now it is a wasteland. The Big Apple, that’s what it was called; the place to come and make all of your dreams come true. I still remember the sweet scent of pizza filling my senses and the noisy streets buzzing like angry bees. But all that changed when the alarms were sounded. They were heard for miles around and even across the serene Hudson. People were such animals back then. All over, people were running wild, screaming, crying, and yelling. The ill fated New York was finally at its end. All of us were evacuated. We moved into the country. My family had a house in good Kansas. It had a horse ranch too but with no horses. My younger cousin Belle loved riding them. But she moved away to Canada along with the rest of the family. It had never occurred to them that a nuclear bomb can reach for thousands of miles and moving to a nearby country was of no use. But what am I saying? I haven’t moved quite yet. There isn’t a place on earth that is safe. Everything is a hell. Might as well go straight to hell if that’s what it comes down to. Maybe I started off a little bit too early. My problems began just few weeks ago. Come along, take a peek.
