Chapter: 30

Before the disease took over Earth
The frustration on his face turned into worry as we floated back into the bright lights, "hopefully my father will be able to sort this mess out once and for all" he said as his mouth pressed against my ear.

A few minutes ago he called me his love and now he is furious, what have I done to make him so upset…?

I closed my eyes as the lights flashed past me hoping that I would wake up next to Seth in our makeshift home and all of this would be some sort of horrible dream.
My eyes shot open the moment an ice cold sensation surrounded my body.

He held me closer as our heads popped out of the water and I gasped for air, my body shivered frantically from the few seconds which I was in there. "Don't worry my love, help will be here soon" he whispered against my already frozen cheek.

"Do not call me that" I shouted at him as my teeth chatted together. Amazingly he didn't put up a fight instead he laughed a faint laugh against my skin, blinding lights circled us as a man spoke over a loud microphone. "You are trespassing on private property" he shouted over and over before stopping and pulling us out of the water.

My body trembled next to his as he cradled me refusing to let go, "I would like to see doctor O'Brien" he said softly as his teeth chatted together continuously.

The man who was screaming over the microphone looked down at us and let out a loud laugh, "this is the first time I find people in the water who makes demands instead of begging for their life" he said with a sarcastic laugh.

"Trust me there's a first time for everything" Liam said with a bit of a sarcastic laugh of his own. The man yanked him up by his collar and forced him to look at him, "you're making a big mistake" Liam said before twisting the man's arm around and bringing him to his knees.

"You have five seconds to tell my father I am here" he shouted.
The poor man had no idea what was going on and neither did I, I sat there quietly watching the drama unfold.

The man laughed loudly once again and tilted his head up to face Liam, "doctor 'O
Brian has no kids" he shouted confidently.
He turned and looked at me full of confusion, "What year is it?" He asked calmly.

The man who was on his knees gently lifted himself up and placed his hand upon Liam's shoulder, "son you need to stop taking those drugs" he said, the tone in his voice had changed from corky to concern.

"Please, tell me what year are we in? " Liam shouted. Without giving him an answer he twisted Liam's arm around and had him face down. "I warn all these little punks to stop doing drugs but they don't listen, do they?" He shouted.
