Excerpt - Stranger From A Strange LandI didn’t run into any another boats on my way to the mainland. The enemies were too lazy to have patrols going all night, but I’m sure they knew we were out there somewhere. All those slaves couldn’t have just gone up in smoke. Boa always claimed that as long as we didn’t get ourselves into trouble, they wouldn’t come looking for us. The thing was, I stopped trusting the enemy the moment that they took over the world and held on tight for a century.Excerpt - Stranger From A Strange Land by laurotica
The sun was just beginning to rise when I saw land at the horizon. It was usually in our best interest to park our boats near others at an abandoned harbor.

Zeros has stuck since. “We’ll spend the n
a man, reborn.Stephen spent six hours trying to draw water out of the ground with an old rusted pump, and needless to say, was completely spent that night. He fell asleep on the dust-choked paisley couch in the living room of the farmhouse, and stayed that way all night. Bored of his company, snoring and all, I decided to take a break from rooting through the previous owner’s shelves and cupboards, and went to see Hodge while he stood watch outside. A rickety porch wrapped most of the way around the house, allowing one never-ending view of the flat grasslands all around us.a man, reborn. by laurotica
We found one of the old occupants at the very end of the driveway as a big pile of bones. The others were nowhere to be found, but they’d been gone for a long time.
“I spent my whole life in Montreal,” I started. “I never really got to see the country unless we were driving south to visit my mom’s family. The city is probably one big farm now, as long as the
