Papa, Can You Hear Me?

Greece, 2030, Post-World War 3. Greece have been kicked out of the EU. Many are left starving, and some have died. Wren, a twelve year old girl, is abandoned when her father is visciously attacked by a wolf on the streets. Left to fend for herself, the ony thing that really scares her is these visions she always has about her Mother being captured by "the enemy". When she finds out where her mother, originally thought to be dead, could be held, nothing will stand in her way to find it.

4. Jake

Water lapped over my face. My eyes fluttered open like the door I needed back into life, and there was a stranger standing in front of me. "Rise and shine!" he exclaimed and walked over to a fire he had made, where he was holding a wicker woven basket containing something that smelled like fish. My head throbbed unconfortably and I looked upwards- but there were no trees. I felt the floor- there was no grass, just a stretch of sand which poured as grains through my fingers.

I looked up at my rescuer who was perched on a rock, a stick in his hand skewering a dead fish which flopped lifelessly over the flames. "H...Hello?" I stuttered, and it took him a while to twist his head round and look at me.

"Pleasure to meet you, I'm Jake." and he turned back.

"That's great, really, but... What the hell are you doing here?" I replied, giving him and inquisitive look.

"That's now way to speak to someone who recently saved you from being eaten!" he smirked, picking the fish with ease off the stick and ripping a chunk off with his teeth. I flinched and stared, disgusted at him "I guess I'm sorry..." I managed to get out, still transfixed on the half-fish clasped in his hands, and wondering how on earth he got here anyway. But I stayed silent, consumed by my own thoughts.
