Death of a Comrade - Post Apoc Diorama
She died today. Scout HX-7238. We found her, lying there by a pile of rubble. Helmet loose on the ground, blast rifle lying beside her. Stiff as a board. How long she had lain there we couldn’t tell. Two hours, maybe three. All we knew is that she had left camp late last night, as she always does, to scout ahead, to clear the path. To save our lives. But this time there was no-one to save hers.
About this creation

Gransky saw her first, from his vantage point in the IS-39, and it was his cry that made us all come running. We thought something must have happened to him, and came haring through the streets, but stopped short when we saw him kneeling over her body. He loved her like the daughter he’d lost, so many years ago, as if she were his baby come back from the grave. And she welcomed it – she lost both her parents at the beginning, when THEY first descended from the sky. But no matter what he does to hide it, we’ve all seen Gransky late in the night, weeping silently over a photograph of his dead family. God knows how he’ll cope now that he’s lost his adopted daughter as well. Poor guy. Sure hope he doesn’t just disappear one night, as so many have done. Even the strongest men’s hearts break.


I can just see the official report now – 11-31-97 Scout HX-7238 found deceased at roughly 0900 hours, time of death T minus two to three hours. Deceased has no external injuries, hazard suit intact, found lying dead. Cause of death, unknown. – but the problem with that load of bollocks is that the cause of death isn’t unknown. Any soldier who’s seen any more than a day in this God-forsaken city could tell them how she died. It was THEM. THEY ambushed her when they saw she was alone. THEY grabbed her battle-hardened mind with their filthy thoughts and broke it like a twig. THEY confused hair brain with conflicting sensations of pain and pleasure, and THEY made her mind bend with the emotions that arise when a person is faced with death – fear, anger, regret. Loneliness. And THEY stole the shattered remnants of her mind away, leaving a lifeless shell behind. And that’s another thing they won’t mention on any report. That no matter what you believe, what religion you hold too, there is no name that describes the place where her soul has been taken to. A place worse than any hell. THEIR place.


THEY think they can destroy us. THEY bombed our cities, THEY poisoned our water, THEY took our families. But still we fight on. Though the cries of the dying at times fill the night air. Though we have lost so much. Though there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. We survive. So now they try to take our souls, our very essence, the thing that makes us human. Separate from beasts. Separate from THEM. They pick us off, one by one. They prey on the lonely, the ones without anything. The people who have already seen death. People like Scout HX-7238.
She died today. Scout HX-7238. And with her death, with the death of every man woman and child that falls under THEIR deadly shadow, another thing slowly dies too.
Our hope.

My gosh, I actually had to blink back some tears! Wow, you should write a novel with that skill! Overall, very nice; nothing more touching than a heroic death.

You sent a WOMAN (what are we without our women?) to scout ahead? During an APOCALYPSE?! (I'll tell you, we're nothing without the women with love, that's what.) Good day
