Chapter 1
Like Father, Like Son

I look upon the fallen city, wondering, waiting for when my obvious eminent death will finally arise to meet me. The beast of light and heat has engulfed everything I once knew and grew to love. Knowing this, it’s giving me a feeling that’s hard to describe, but similar to that of relief. The war has only just begun, but much is already lost. Trying to fight back is futile, but even so, we must not give up. You are all I have left. Do not worry, for this was and always will be my complication. G-d forbid you ever get involved, I love you son, be safe.” -your father

I felt a gentle kiss placed upon my forehead at that moment. I know it couldn't have been real, but I definitely felt something. My thumb rubbed the crinkled paper, and I wondered if the dark blotches splattered on the paper were tears… or perhaps something else. I placed the letter into my pocket as I pushed the chair out from the desk, which made a squeaking noise as it rubbed up against the old pine. The wooden floorboards creaked from beneath me, as I fell to the ground to weep. The excruciating pain of seeing what were presumably my father’s final wishes was too much, as my legs had decidedly forgone their working state. The salty drops pierced my soul, and fell with haste to the floor, seemingly vanishing into something invisible to the naked eye.

“Gaius, hurry up, we cannot afford to be here any longer!”

“Yes Aelius, I was just finishing up, I shall waste no more time.” I wiped what tears were left from my face, and fished in my pockets for the syringe. Pulling it out, I could see the deep, sky-blue liquid to be noticeably translucent. Though only being a 22 gauge needle, it still brought about a shudder from inside.
