The explosion knocked her off her feet and sent a ringing through her ears. She felt the world going black.
When she came to, she got up and looked around. the bathroom was in shambles. the spotted mirrors were shattered all around her on the floor. one of the stall doors had been blown off. She rose to her feet, brushed herself off, and started through the halls, looking for her friends. She walked through the ruins of her school for nearly an hour, finding nothing but the dead. She heard footsteps and ran for the source. She ran smack dab into a boy. She barely remembered his name. But he knew hers. "Samantha?" he said, peering at her from beneath his thick bangs. She nodded. What was his name again? Leo, Lawrence? "What was your name again?" she finally asked. "Leon. I think we should probably get out of here." he said. they sprinted for the exit, not quite sure why they were running. They burst out into grey light. The earth was barren, nothing but ruins and smoke left. "I-i think we're the only ones alive." Leon said.

Gone Awry (joined almost 11 years ago)

I have been many places, seen many things, been many things as well, but what I shall never stop being, is a writer, a traveler of dreams and the human soul. My name is none of your concern. Call me anything or nothing; I may not answer to anything, or answer to everything.
