I saw you in the window. You had already drawn a huge crowd, they almost obscured you. You looked happy but I was far away and I couldn't run out to meet you even though I had to warn you.

They were everywhere suddenly. They swarmed the building, black faceless things I don't think they were human. They communicated somehow, not through speech but it was all very organized. All the people panicking, terrified but these black things had an agenda.

I saw the bomb skitter across the floor.

I dove down covering my head. I felt the floor shake, the heat, the bits of glass and metal swirling around me. I felt warm sticky something all over my skin, but no pain.

The window was fogged with smoke, but I knew you were not there. There was nothing outside anymore.
