[The Savior: After the fall]

Humanity has encountered thousands of wars and conflict but none which could rival the scale of the massive destruction, The Fall. Since The Fall, mankind has reached its turning point. Technology could no longer advance and majority of the population were wiped out. Who is the savior of this world?


7. The Reasoning

It was the refreshing day of September that Mr. Davidson, my work companion, was killed by a Fallen and I met this unknown person. I offered him a ride and he surprisingly accepted it without complaining. I was tired of that junkyard landscape. It was covered with sand which made the work even more frustrating than digging a normal ground. 

"Where is your base?" the strange man asked. I guess the refugee means base in his vocabulary.

"Its about twenty miles east," I replied back, "It will only take about ten minute with this car."

For the most time, it was silence. But I decided to change the subject to change the quiet mood.

"How much does that sword weigh?" I asked. The sword was heavy to the point where the entire car had sunk downward. I can already feel that it wasn't something that any ordinary person can carry.

"Its about a hundred, in kilogram," he replied, "Its about two hundred and twenty pounds."

I was shocked to hear that a human can carry something like that with one hand. Although many of us are chosen by the survival of fittest to have the athletic-degree strength, I doubt that any one of us would even compete with him.

"How is your life in the base?" he sounded as if he tried to avoid the topic about the sword, but I followed it anyways.

"Its alright," I replied,"But its dangerous. There are three types of people living in the refugee camp."

"Three types?" he seems to be interested about it.

"One is the person who is physically fit, the person who has great tactics, and the person who betrays others," I replied, "If a person is not strong enough, there is no place for them to stay there."

"I see..." 

As the conversation met its end, the exterior of refugee camp began to show.

"Its better than what I had expected," he revealed expression of slight excitement.
