Tomorrow When The War Began: Wherever We Go Darkness Will Follow

A spanner has been thrown in the works when Lee doesn't show up after blowing up the control houses. Homer, Robyn and Ellie go back into Wirrawee to find him, closely followed by Fi. But will Chris's death shake them up that much that they wont be able to save Lee? And maybe even get captured themselves? Is this the end of the road for Ellie and the others? Read on to find out.


1. The Soldiers


I crouched in the bushes, watching as Homer crossed the road carefully ahead of me. He dived into the bushes on the other side of the road, slowly turned, and gave me the signal indicating he was safe. Then it was my turn. I slowly stood from my crouching position, stretching my right leg as I did. Quietly, I snuck forward, and almost got run over. Standing openly, and most vulnerable on the side walk, I looked to the left, and saw two soldiers walking along it straight for me. I froze. They continued heading in my direction, talking in their own language. They hadn't seen me. Not yet. I sunk back into the trees and hid behind the biggest bush I could see. Crouching behind it, I watched as they approached the spot where I had been standing. I could see them, yet they could not see me, I hoped. I could hear them, but they could not hear me. I could smell them, and I really hoped they could not smell me, though it wouldn't surprise me considering the last shower I had was almost a month ago. These were the only advantages I had. If I needed to, I could take them by surprise. As they came closer and closer I began to notice something…

They were drunk. I could tell by the way they walked and how sloppy and slurred their words were. A fun night out at the pub I'd say! That sickened me; to think they're out having fun, drinking and acting like this was their home, acting like they were safe, that nothing could harm them and they had successfully taken over this land, and here we were, struggling to even survive. I sucked in my breath as I realized I had lost sight of them. 'Where were they?! They were right there!' I thought, beginning to panic in my mind. Thankfully my body hadn't yet connected to the panic in my mind otherwise I would be a mess. Frantically, I looked around, but saw no trace of them. I still hadn't let out my breath. And suddenly I chocked on the air, coughing loudly. That was it. I was done. They would get me for sure now. I closed my eyes sinking down into the ground. But no one came. I looked up and slowly came to the edge of the bush. The two soldiers were walking along the path up ahead, almost completely out of sight. They hadn't even heard me.
