The sweet memory of orange blossoms was all he could take with him into the desert.

I didn’t see it happen. He was gone before we even turned our backs to his voice, coming from a few meters away from us. There were tracks of him being dragged through the snow, colored red with blood. We never found him. I want to believe that this is a good thing.

On a normal bright summer’s day, you would see children playing in the streets, people walking their dogs in the park or your neighbors mowing their lawns. On a normal bright summer’s day, you would not have to wear jackets and gloves, and caps to protect your ears from the cold. On a normal bright summer’s day, you would probably smile.

The residents of the small quiet town Raine did not see it coming. One morning, when they woke up, they noticed that the sky was a little bit darker than usual. Maybe simply cloudy, as they predicted rain anyway. But when rain failed to appear and the sky above their heads only got darker and darker each day, people began to speculate. Was it an early winter? Rain and sleet still to come, or just a few bad weather days? Whatever it was, they did not think about it for too long; they had their lives to go on with, a job that needed to be a done and a family to care for.

She looked him up and down, as if she had to prove to herself that it was really him standing in front of her, right there. She touched his chest, felt the clean uniform under her hands. Then, she threw her arms around his neck and exhaled in relief. A smile spread across her face. Sidney wrapped his arms around her and held her close.


And damn, now I want to keep working on all of them right away. haha

That's part of the fic I wanted to write for apocabigbang. ;) It's only partly first person. I think it gives a little thrill to it.

I might have been clapping my hands when I wrote that. LOL One of my favorite parts. :D

I know, I know! I really wanted to get it done for the challenge, but couldn't really. A little sad that it's just another WIP now. BUT I DEFINITELY WILL FINISH THIS! :D As all my WIPs, come time. :P
