23. In Town

So we left around noon. And you wouldn't believe what could happen in 24 hours. The town looked like it could have shot with 10 or more cannons, and was bustling yet quiet at the same time. There was a collapsed building, and from the broken remainders of a sign I could tell it was a store. John-Church was holding my hand, I was holding Hannah and George walked next to me. I neared the store, and listened very closely. I could hear a muffled tired voice calling out my name.

 

"Angelica....Angelica!" I heard Charles' faint voice and my heart may have dropped.

 

Adjusting Hannah in my arms, I made my way farther into the pile of rubbish, and told John-Church to go back to George. I gave Hannah to George, and he sat on a remaining park bench with John-Church next to him

 

"Angelica I'll-" George began. 

"No! I have to." I interrupted.

 

I made my way across the pile. Trying not to trip on my dress too much. When I got to the main pile of the store, I saw remnants of glass, porcelain and wood. I neared closer the noise. Finally, I lifted up a large plank of wood the only thing holding up an otherwise collapsed building. And I bet you know who I saw.
