The Fall of Us

©Molly Looby CampNaNoWriMo '14 !

Enter the world of Tye. The Fall has devastated much of the world as we know it but Tye knows nothing else. He and his best friend Eeli are ready to leave their home as soon as they reach thirteen years so that they can be off on their own and be who they want to be and do what they want to do. At last.

Tye and Eeli could never have imagined how dangerous the real world was going to be.

“There’s gotta be some food around here somewhere!” Eeli’s shoutin thru the wind, wrappin her arms around herself to shield from it tho she’s wearin her jacket done up.

“We gotta find some people or somefin. A town, anyfin.”

She shakes her head, spittin out the hair that’s blown into her mowf. “I don’t trust em, Tye. Now we ain’t got nuffink to give it’ll git much worse.”

“You gotta give people a chance.”

“No I don’t.”

“We can’t make it to Camrose by ourselves, we don’t even know where it is. We don’t even know where we are now.” I’m leanin on my nees cause there’s no tree around here fer me to lean on. My head’s poundin somfin fierce an the dizziness refuses to git the hell out. My stomak is flippin an I’m strugglin to hold it down, tho there must be nuffink in there at all. It’s twistin an shrinkin like it’s hungry but I can’t even fink about food. My injuries are no betteren yesterday but I feel much worse. My skin is hot like a camp fire.

Eeli grabs my arm an forces me on. I feel like I’m stumblin ratheren walkin.

“Stop,” I tell her fer the fourth time already today. She drops to the ground an huffs, turnin away from me. I crumple to the floor, the colours all blurrin together. I shut my eyes, feelin like the world is turnin under me.


“Tye,” Eeli’s shakin me. “Tye, it’s bin ages.”

“What?” I touch my hand to my head an blink open my eyes. The wind’s calmed an the sun’s up high. I sit up, pressing my tongue up against the top of my mowf a few times, hopin the sick feelin at the back of it will go away. It don’t.

“I don’t want you in the sun like this. Come on.”

She stands up, offerin me her hand. As she pulls me up, my stomak heaves an I clamp my lips together, breathin heavy from my nose. I swallow an pant hard. I can’t see nuffink clearly, everyfin is the same. All I want is to drop back down but I can’t cause Eeli’s countin on me.

“Eeli,” I manage fer force thru my lips. “The colours are mergin again.”

“It’s okay, I just wanna git you in the shade.” She points in the distance but everyfin is the same shade of green an I can’t see nuffink. “There’s some trees there.”

We shuffle to the trees, my legs wobbly, my whole body tremblin.

“Yer shakin, Tye. Are you cold?”

“On fire.”

“Tye, I dunno what to do.” The panic’s growin stronger an stronger in her. I can feel it bouncin off her.

There’s another hurl from my stomak but I manage to keep it down. I open my mowf to speak but it’s too soon. Before I can fink to move further away from Eeli I’m on my hands an nees, spewin up everyfink. There’s nuffin much fer me to throw up but that don’t stop my body from heavin again an again till there really is nuffink left. Each surge is too close to the last an I feel like I can’t take a breath. My head gits worse, the poundin growin louder an the dizziness explodin into black spots in my vision.

“It’s okay, Tye.” Eeli’s rubbin my back an shushin me. I can hear her cryin an I want to comfort her but I can’t even take enuff breath.

My stomak is clenchin so hard an my heart is beatin so fast that I feel like I’m gonna black out. All the same, I try to git myself standin up but my arms collapse, not able to hold my wayte no more.

I’m lyin on the ground, unable to move, only able to pant an groan.

I can feel Eeli’s tears tho I can’t see them an she’s screamin an cryin fer help.

I dunno what happens next.
