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.


46. 46

I dunno how much time goes by before Eeli wipes her eyes an climbs into my lap. I just wrap my arms round her, holdin her close to me, listenin to her heart beatin.

It’s an even longer time before she speaks. “Fanks.” She clears her throat.

“Fer what?” I’m strokin her hair an I can’t help it. She lets me. I dunno if that makes everyfink worse somehow.

“Savin me.”


She puts her finger to my lips, shushin me. “It weren’t yer fault.”

“It was.”

She shakes her head. “It weren’t. She wanted to kill you. Dint she?”

“She nearly did.”

“Essackly. You weren’t tryn’a kill her, were ya?”

“No, Eeli. Never. I never wanna hurt no one.”

“I know.” She takes my hand an skweezes it. “Fanks fer comin back.”

“I weren’t gonna leave you. Eeli . . .” I don’t realise how huge the words are till they’re seconds away from the air. I have to take a breath. “I love you.”

Her smile is adorable. Tiny. An her face flares red. She giggles. “I know you do.”

I feel my eyebrows cross. “What?”

She shakes her head. “I love you too, stoopid.”

An then she’s kissin me an it’s like everyfin’s good an always has been.

An always will be.
