The day society broke down

In a world where society has broken down and is in ruins after major technology fuelled wars broke out, one teen must fight for who he loves, or face the consequences of sacrifice.


7. Hallucinations

We had been walking for a while that day, when I suddenly realised something. I was looking without seeing, thinking without logic. I was feeling like I was sleepwalking, not really moving, but rather gliding. My mind was scrambled, one thought in New York, one thought in the desert, one in Antarctica. Some of them were in clusters, all over. And then I started to see fragments of my mind, some in the distance. I was walking on others. They were like tectonic plates, the ones that make up the Earth. Then I started seeing the earth.

I saw the sea, the suffering. Entire populations. Then, I saw people I knew, those I loved, suffering at the hands of a masked being. But I wasn't in my city, I was here, in the desert. Wasn't I? Suddenly, the world tilted, like I'd fallen. It kept happening, it made me feel sick. All those that were suffering, they fell on their side, like someone had pulled the trigger of a gun, but I saw no muzzle flash, heard no sound. Then, I was pulled out of my view, and only saw darkness.
