Still, the sandy wind bit hard underneath, few would venture out from their comfy air-conditioned homes or offices today. I leapt from a rooftop and easily landed on an adjacent platform.

- my target: a building downtown. I scaled the wall, scratched my way up its crumbling surface before it had a chance to repair. The roof was vacant. Good. I kicked through the service door – Habitat A – and sprinted through the guts of the building to room 2401.

“Taren please.” She struggles against the vines, “it’s me, why are you doing this?” I glance at her. She’s naked.

“A runner finishes the mission.” I place my finger on the trigger.

NRF: This was a very interesting story line, although the author did not go far enough in explaining the war and why some received special powers and some didn't. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's writing.

Oh, d...
