I laid silent as my world continued to crumble around me. Flames of all colors and hues lashed out at my pale skin as i tried to scrape my way between the cars,packed like sardines on the thin road. No one was going anywhere,though. Another explosion hit home at some big shot corporation and it soon came crashing down onto the surrounding bystanders. Poor them. But there is no reason to waste time to feel sorry,and for people you don't really care about? With my mind preoccupied on trying to slip through the streets,i was awoken from my thought when my fragile body was slammed into the side of a tattered building. At once i knew it had to be a flashbang or a stun grenade since others on the street had been blown back and were now stumbling around like blind mice trying to find their way.I hit the ground as soon as i came to my scenes and just in time by the sound of it. Bullets came swirling into the crowd and i struggled to grip onto my only cover. A human corpse. People were dropping like flies as the enemy continued their onslaught. Us civilians were not really seen as a threat,just as worthless dogs in their way. Now I'm not stupid,and i know well and good there was bound to be a patrol behind them that was picking off stranglers that has survived their first attack. Like me. It took me a moment to realize one of the shooters had snagged the palm of my left hand,so i ripped off the shirt of a victim and wrapped it around my mangled hand. I stood and began to run after the shooters. They had a good 10 minuet head start on me,so i jogged steadily through the now empty rubble. Then i stopped to gaze at the pillaged building at the edge of Valley Way and Cemetery Drive. After a pause to remember the fallen heroes none of these people knew about,i slipped unnoticed into the shadowed building and my eyes hadn't even had enough time to adjust to the light before i was scooped up into my partners arms. She then released me and i was able to take a deep breathe and i felt like i was waking up. Ash and dust was all i could taste,and i wipe my brow. I had not come to see i was shivering and my body convulsing every now and then. "Finch,you okay?"
