1. Prologue

My feet are slapping the ground, pounding and pounding, my breath is ragged and torn as I run further and further away from the shouts and screams, away from the gun fire and smells of burning, away from my family; my mother who's clutching the last letter from my father, away from my brothers who are attempting to put up a fight. I run with no one at my side but more importantly no one in my way. I reach the water and abruptly stop. This is where it ends, where I can never turn back.
