Flames emblem figures in the distance, the heat feels unbearable but at the same time, natural. Smoldering ash fills the air, it’s not easy to breath. I feel the embers from the air graze my skin, it burns but for some reason I don’t mind it. Not aware of where exactly this place is, but it looks like an atomic bomb met five hundred trucks of gasoline and a single match. A disfigured shadow slowly moves towards me from the haze of the ash. With a limp it begins to become more clear, it’s body is deteriorating into the ash that fills the air as it gets closer. I could run or fight but it oddly doesn’t feel necessary. It gets with a couple feet and lunges at me, but when it’s deformed hand reaches for my face the creature completely turns to a bright red ash about a centimeter from my nose. The ground beneath me violently shakes, suddenly it rips a ravine below my now falling body. Suddenly there’s a bright flash of light, I open my eyes, it was but only a dream.
