Synopsis :: They’d never known a world not at war. (Don’t ask me where this thing came from.)
I don’t know a world without war.
I have no happy memories of a time without metal.
I’ve heard stories. I’ve seen photos, but I don’t know it. That world doesn’t exist anymore and maybe it never did. I deal in facts. Things I can touch, taste and smell. Things I can hold in my hands.
I’m not fighting a war to regain what I’ve lost. I’ve no memories to keep me going. No thoughts to keep me calm. What I do have is my rage. It’s not a fire in my gut but a coldness in my chest. It hurts and it aches and I use that against the things that think they can enslave me. That think they can kill me.
The fact is that I don’t give a damn about a normal life. About regaining our world. I just want to end them. Is that wrong?
Now ask me if I give a fuck.
I can feel the weight of my gun. I can smell the fire just outside our bunker and taste the ash on the air. These are facts. Things I surround myself with and this is war. I don’t know anything else.
