No Plagiarism!j5s3iog01vljlYsmirVdposted on PＥNAＮＡ The man in front of me I call grandpa, although I have a feeling he's not.6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEns1DgBHiG 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEBM6E4vV5w He has no resemblance towards neither me or my sister so I quess we're not related by blood. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqqQMpj8HK4 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVoroq4E2LX I believe he's just a kind man who took us in when our parents were killed in the war. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJqyvxdA29G 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyz6plwIuds His bushy eyebrows grows like weed above his tired eyes. It's a little bit odd because of his obsessivness about that perfectly tended mustasch on his upper lip. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy8R0xi5ckR 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ94hIzOWaQ5 He smokes a very old pipe which gives his clothes a somehow comforting scent. Every time just before igniting the tobacco, he picks up a small, handheld fan from his pocket to redirect the smoke towards the exit. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQpEXP0uxuH 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ03QS3na9zv He's not a very talkative man but has schooled me and my sister well, with books and with whatever knowledge he possess. Although we've lived under the same roof for so many years, I've never learned his true name but I believe that's been his intention all along. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Jzir96nkX 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsan78c8CKC There's no family photos in the whole room and he's never been speaking about a late wife, which somehow proves my theory about him not being my real grandpa. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkLGbDKyOT8 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjURTci3jGn My sister wants to know more about our parents and keeps bringing up the subject. I stopped asking a few years back, the old man avoids the questions and I don't think he even knows who they were. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh8yEgGRojB 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1EmHP0snOl He likes to talk about his old job at a sawmill on the outskirts of town and how he faught to defend it during the war. The repeated story has made my mind painting a very accurate picture of what it really looks like, wish I could go there some day to compare. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw8gn2sG5Mm 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs3v0HLHy91 He's not a very good chef. Ever since we were very small kids we've been fed canned beans and some sort of meat at least four times a week. I've never seen a live animal but read about every single specie in grandpa's old encyclopedia. He says books is the true source to knowledge and the only source since the power grid went down. A couple of years back he found a computer when out scouting and been trying to get it to work along with this rusty old generator.6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡabFxSvxlTl 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGpuXNwptBb I hate that thing. It's noisy and disturbing but is our only option to dwell in complete darkness. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ4el4W7Mvh 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOGstdlYKGS The remains of the structure above our heads used to be grandpa's house but is know desolated like most of the town. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6mhAk56KyI 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVpMaLR7SDD I've been troubled about death lately and what will happen to us when the old man draws his final breath. I don't know much about life but I've learned death is inescapable and that makes me feel claustrophobic. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9rjBVwWUhC 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMnZ4Xj943I What purpose to life is there when being isolated from its trials? The tobacco is almost consumed and the lids of the old man is slipping. A thin line of saliva is making its way down the wrinkles on his cheek. The fan is running low of battery. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNZ7zaSqiL4 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVUwewrLsm2 A snoring sound comes from behind my back. My sister has fallen asleep in a temporary bed made of pillows and blankets She looks so peaceful on the outside, but her inner demons are chewing on her body and mind. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ59p5dnpmst 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5fscOD5fWQ Her name is Ashley and did just turn twelve. On these occasions when being free from distractions I usually study the the hatch at the top of the ladder. It's made of solid steel. I've defied grandpa's prohibition a couple of times, trying to open it but the handle is immovable. 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjRLQ6hhRKE 6Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUQNkV0Hkna In a few years I might succeed. He would be furious with me for even thinking the thought. I wonder if my patience will allow me to wait until I'm of age to venture outside. All I know is that the war triggered a new dark age, a modern version of its precursor, grandpa won't speak of it in detail, says it's all in the past. I was too young at the time to be able to recollect any substancial memories and Ashley was mere an infant.
