“David, is it still chasing us?”

“I don’t think so, Sibyl, but stay alert! Keep it together.”

“Gone, everyone’s gone! What do we do now?”

“If we survived, surely others have. Think, Sibyl. Use your gift to see.”

“No, no! It’s terrible! I only see that demon chasing us! David, this is a nightmare!”

“Yes, it is a nightmare. As with any nightmare, try not to be afraid.”

“That sword didn’t even scratch the demon!”

“I know, but it’s the only protection that we have.”

“I see them… mom… dad… Matthew… they’re all dead!”

“Try to look beyond your house, Sibyl. Do you see the neighborhood? Can you see the city?”

“Yes, David, there are others! They are also hiding. There are more demons roaming the streets!”

“We can’t hide in the park forever. Maybe if we find other survivors, we can make sense of all this.”

“This is my fault, David. I’m so selfish! I wanted the world to change for me! And it did! This is no gift! It’s a curse!”

“Sibyl, that’s nonsense. Here, let me dry your eyes. Then we must go.”
