Still on the run…

I found another survivor…
Her name is Alesha Escobar…this is what she saw
The Day The Sun Stopped Shining

“The kids are up,” I mumble to my husband as I pull the blanket up to my shoulders. When he doesn’t respond, I lightly elbow him in the ribs.

“It’s still dark…” He defiantly wraps himself in the blanket and leaves me without cover. I hate when he does that, just like he probably hates when I end up taking most of the bed and he’s hanging off a corner.

I look at my cell phone to check the time; the faint glow lights up my face. What the hell…?

“Mommy!” Lizzie bursts through our bedroom door with her two little brothers in tow. “Mommy, there was a man at our window! Now he’s at the door downstairs.”

Are they playing one of their games again? Their bedroom window is on the friggin’ second story.

“Why is it still dark at 9 a.m.?” I elbow my husband again. “Wake up, something’s wrong.”

The kids run downstairs. “Let’s go open the door! He’s at the door!”

“Stop!” I jump out of bed and chase them downstairs. They knew good and well not to open the door, especially for strangers. I stop them right before their little hands can turn the knob.

The sun still didn’t come up, and all I can hear are strange voices in the air…non-human ones. I don’t want to freak out the kids, so I try to distract them and order them to park their butts on the couch pronto.

“Where are my pants?” My husband lumbers downstairs in his t-shirt and boxers.

BANG!

The front door jolts like someone hit it with a battering ram, and my heart nearly stops. The kids start screaming and crying. What was going on?

“Mom,” Lizzie whispers.

“Yeah?” I gather her and her brothers into my arms. A hard, cold lump sits in my stomach and I almost double over in pain.

“The man that was at the door…”

“He’s gone.”

She shakes her head. “He says he’s upstairs in your bedroom. He says it’s our time to go.”

**********

The three things I’d do if the world were ending:

  1. Pray
  2. Try to protect my family
  3. Gather all my courage for whatever awaits!

We’re on the move now…

It has been dark for 2 days…

Nobody knows whether we will ever see light again…

On my run…

I found another survivor…

His name is Keith Weaver…this is what he saw

The Day the Sun stopped Shining

4 Days left...Will we survive whatever comes next?

“I get out of bed and creep out the bedroom to look through the bay window.  There is nothing, complete darkness; I can’t even see my yard.  There is no moon, it’s supposed to be daytime now yet the world is dark like an abyss.  The only thing I’m sure of are the noises coming from outside again.

I grab the poker by the fireplace, and decide to head outside.  The only comfort I have is the thought that certainly my neighbors are out there wondering what has happened as well.  Once outside, the noises seem to just stop; now I am fixated by the complete darkness and silence of a dead world.  I have to keep patting my own chest to make sure I am truly still there.

 Then I see it, a strange glow across the street.  I’m not sure at first what to do, but standing in complete darkness is too terrifying, so I decide to go investigate.  The closer I get to the glow, the more distorted it seems to become.  It’s almost as if my presence is irritating it in some way.

As I approach, the glow seems to take the shape of a woman.  I’m not sure who she is, but she appears to be sad.  The glowing woman turns to me and extends one hand, as if asking me to take it.  I’m in shock, what is this, a ghost?  Her eyes almost seem to plead with me for several moments, as if begging me to take her hand.  After thinking about it, I decide against this and take a step back.  The woman appears to let out a cry for help, then disappears and I’m back in total darkness…

…”It didn’t work, did it Doc?”

“No Mrs. Cooper, not this time either.  I promise you though, with our technology, your husband will come out of this coma eventually, we just need to keep trying.”

The Doc turned off the machine and slid his clawed hand back into his pocket and left the room.  Mrs. Cooper looked over her husband, he was still alive after over a year but dead to the world.  He slipped away when the alien invasion came, but she soon found out not all aliens were here to harm us.  Her only hope was that the price she had to pay for their help getting her husband back wasn’t too much?”

If the world really were ending, what three things would you do…

…if the world were ending without a doubt, here are the three things I would probably do.

  1. I would take a quick trip, probably somewhere unexpected like Paris (although flying out of the country in a time of chaos might not be possible).  If not, a road trip to Vegas.
  2. I would make amends and visit all my friends and family, see them one last time and let them know how I feel.
  3. I would ask my boys what they wanted more than anything in the world, and try to make that happen before.

When Keith is not on the run, he finds a safe haven here…
