Chapter 1: Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust : Part 22Mature

They were all thinking about moments in their past; when life wasn’t a constant struggle to survive, when they felt the warm touch of a loved one, when they made love to their girlfriends. They thought of when they complained about doing sports for the afternoon, when they woke up in the morning and their greatest worry was making it to work on time, not if they would eat that day, or if they’d be attacked that day, bombed that day, or fall victim to the Cordyceps that day.
All they had now was each other, and that’s all they could ever count on. The world was falling apart, but together, they could survive.
Together they could survive anything.

The End
