The Fall of Light: The Series

“The Beginning of The End – The Fall of Light”
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

A father and his three children ran down ‘Germantown Avenue.’ They vanished as one of the flying trash removal and collection trucks descended upon them. Overhead clouds formed and caused the daytime light to take on the appearance of a nighttime sky… The booming thunder, thumping-metal-grinding walking machines, flashing-burning white to blue-green rays, and falling lights burned to ashes anyone and anything it touched…
For a moment we were silent, taking stock of each other. I daresay he found me a strange enough figure, naked, save for my water-soaked trousers and socks, scalded, and my face and shoulders blackened by the smoke. His face was a fair weakness, his chin retreated, and his hair lay in crisp, almost flaxen curls on his low forehead; his eyes were rather large, pale-blue, and blankly staring. He spoke abruptly, looking vacantly away from me.
“This must be the beginning of the end,” he said, interrupting me. “The end! The great and terrible day of the Lord!” When the men shall call upon the mountains and the rocks to fall upon them and hide them – hide them from the face of Him that sitteth upon the throne!”

~ "They Came In Three's": Chp. 2 "The Fall of Light" ~
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

'Dre' and I thought we'd have a chance to get back to the house...no way. The machines were nearing the corner of Baynton Street now. The surviving buildings along the block were engulfed in flames and smoke. Hope for them was an impossibility.
The uphill run on Walnut Lane to Morton Street was always a challenging hike on any given day. However, on this night, it was a push over. The reality was that nothing or no one was going to impeed the progress of life-saving escape. The analogy of people turning into savages rang true as every one seemed to run over any one who could not keep up or get out of the way of the stampeding horde.

~ "Where Is Everybody?" - Chp. 3 "The Fall of Light" ~
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

We could see dirt and dust being kicked up by some of the residents who survived the attack. You really had to look closely at thier faces in order to recognize any of the poor wretches who wandered aimlessly about. Several of the neighbors, recognizable and not, were crying and carrying the bodies of dead babies. Others wept over thier elderly and other kin-folk who went missing or had been killed. The hardest thing to witness was the children who now had no one to care for them...thier parents gone and no next of kin to look after them. Russell and I had to keep moving.
We combed meticulously through the rubble at the once standing 14th District building and found a few things...one of the most important items was a radio...a "police ban walkie-talkie!"

~ "All Points Due South" - Chapter 4: "The Fall of Light" ~
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

Death and dead things were everywhere. The helpless zombified victims walked and milled about, clueless as to what it is they are supposed to do. The voices on the walkie-talkie became more clear once we were outside of the implodded structure. The voices of police and military command barked forth instruction for eveyone in the city to converge on the center city area... It reiterated its' instructions for those in the far south and west of the city to head toward the sports arena areas. We began to tred southward as we listened in on the radio transmissions.
Dre and I attempted to speak to the voices over the hand-held devices.
"Breaker, Breaker! This is a civilian citizen attempting rescue for folks in the north-west region and close point thereabout... Can you read me? ...Over!"
Me and Dre waited for a response to out radio request. The damned thing spit and squawked back an answer.

~ Chapter 5: 'Farmland, A Skippack Retreat?' ~
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

As the invader continued its firing, another rose up out that hole from hell, right behind the first one. It too began firing at random. And then, a third joined thier ranks and began firing all about. The three of them were at first floating in tandom. They floated out from behind one another and seemed to touch or join the tips of their vessels, three in a row. Then they changed positions again with one in the lead as the remaining two floated just behind on either flank.
However, when that eerie noise from the machines reached their ears, they froze in fright. More machines were seen traveling west to east on Chelten Avenue. Survivors immediately stopped what they were doing and began to 'haul-ass' away from the death-dealing metal assasins. A group of machines were again spotted approaching from east to west along the 'Armat Street' corridor. I don't think one has to be a "rocket-scientist" to figure out that we have been spotted and were being encircled in a vicious snare, a trap!

~ "The Fall of Light": Chapter 6: 'Starvation' - "My Brother's Keeper" ~
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

People from 'New Orleans' were and have continued to suffer homelessness and displacement for more than five or six years after their hurricane disaster. The folks who were damaged by the "911 Attack" are still realing from continued turmoil and false promises from the 'powers that be.' And yet, again, "it couldn't happen to us!"
And now, it's our turn...the populace of the entire United States Government to feel the pain and suffering of the chosen, the neglected. I wondered what has happened to the "Shut-In's," the people in Nursing Homes, the Parapelegic, The Babies in hospitals and other Nurseries? What has happened to these people? Am I My Brother's Keeper? What am I supposed to do? I can't even keep me and Stevie alive for more than a day or two!
There wasn't any print regarding what the so-called president would or wouldn't do... Death was all around us. The stinch of dead and dying bodies seemed endless as we made our way back into the old neighborhood. We ran as if our lives depended on it...shit, our lives did depend on our getting back and out of sight of the damned machines.
