Timothy is the last one in the city of Vermillion, Iowa. A being called The Soldier and a gang of three followers, The Wanderer and The Painless, have wiped out three fourths of the planet's population. Timothy speaks with The Elder and is informed that if he wants to stop The Soldier, he has to go to Sandover, Ohio, where he will overcome some of the toughest obstacles imaginable.
I opened my eyes slowly. The rain was still pounding on the roof of my house. I got up and looked at the clock. 12:48 PM. Just past noon. My city was lonely, considering the fact that I was the last one in it.
It started when a being called The Soldier and a gang of two other people, named The Wanderer and The Painless, attacked Vermillion, Iowa with a band of shadow creatures. This was in June. It's November now. The Soldier and his henchmen wiped out three quarters of the planets' population.
I put on a pair of jeans and a black jacket. I walked outside into the rain. I tried to wrap my mind around the fact that everyone around me dropped like flies in a furnace. I walked.
