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.

An we’re runnin and runnin. Me an Nimmo, side by side. Racin to git to Eeli. My breathin’s loud like rumbles of thunder. My feet’re loud as they slap the pavement in my boots. My heart’s loud as it drums its rithum, hopin she can hear it an she knows I’m comin.

I won’t stop runnin. All I do is eat, drink, sleep an run.

There ain’t nuffink more important.

I run.

An I run.

An I run.

I dunno how I do it but I do.

I run an run an run.

I never felt so alive.

I run.

I live.

An I run.

Sweat’s coverin my body an drips off my nose. I wipe my hand across my forehead and keep on runnin.

I ain’t stoppin fer nuffink or nobody.

My blood’s hot, thunderin round like it’s gotta run too. I can feel it in my legs and hear it in my ears.

All a’me’s about runnin.

Runnin to her.

Cause what else would I run towards?

Nuffink an nobody.


I pass tired buildins an cars.

Day turns to nite turns to dawn.

I jump up an carry on.

I reach grass of miles an miles an I know I’m gittin closer every second to her.

An I run.

An run.

An run.

An there, in the distance, buildins. People.
