Everyone remembered the day the sky went black. The day the sun was wiped from the sky. They remember the wind as it brought in the darkness; the way the earth shook and everything changed. Everyone remembered the screams as the darkness ate those who were out in the open, those who had surrounded themselves by light, and those who made noise.

It was the day when everyone disappeared, everyone except the boy, the only person I have seen in two years. The boy I talk to through the glass.
