A post apocalyptic captain America
The world ended in fire and smoke.
The sky turned black, and the sun was blotted out.
The ground shook, and the oceans rose.
The cities burned, and the people died.
It was the end of everything.
Everything except me.
I was born in the ruins of New York City, a city that had once been home to millions of people.
Now it was a wasteland, a place of death and decay.
But I was alive, and I was strong.
I didn’t know why I had survived when everyone else had died.
I didn’t know what had happened to the world or why it had happened.
All I knew was that I was alone, the last hope for humanity.
I spent my days searching for food and water, scavenging what I could from the ruins of the city.
I slept in abandoned buildings or on the streets, wherever I could find shelter from the rain and snow.
I fought off wild animals and other survivors who wanted what I had.
I was ready for whatever the world would throw at me, or so I thought.
The sound of the explosion woke me from a fitful sleep.
It was a distant sound, but a familiar one.
Every day there were explosions in the ruins of New York City.
Every day there were battles, and people died.
But not today, not if I could help it.
I got to my feet and stretched my aching muscles.
The cold had seeped into my bones during the night, and it took a few minutes for me to get the feeling back in my limbs.
When I was finally ready, I left the abandoned building where I’d been sleeping and set off into the city.
I could see my breath in the cold morning air as I walked, the sound of my footsteps echoing through the empty streets.
Everywhere I looked, there were signs of the destruction that had taken place here.
Buildings had been reduced to rubble, and cars had been overturned and abandoned.
The air was thick with dust and smoke, and the stench of decay hung in the air.
It was hard to believe that this place had once been home to millions of people.
Now it was a dead city, a place of death and despair.
But even in death, there was life.
I saw movement ahead of me, and I stopped in my tracks.
There was no telling what it might be, but it was best to be cautious.
I reached for the knife at my belt and held it at the ready as I waited to see what would happen next.
A few moments later, Sarah stepped out from behind a pile of rubble and debris.
She was about my age, with short brown hair and a muscular build.
She was wearing a heavy winter coat, a backpack slung over her shoulder.
She smiled when she saw me, and I felt a surge of relief at the sight of her familiar face.
It’s just you,” I said as I lowered my knife.
“I thought you might be someone else.”
“Someone who’s not me?”
“No one else is like you,” she said with a smile.
I smiled back at her, and a warm feeling spread through my chest.
We’d been friends for as long as I could remember, but our relationship was more than just friendship.
We were survivors, partners in this harsh new world.
We’d been through a lot together, and we’d always had each other’s backs.
I knew that I could trust her with my life, just as she could trust me with hers.
We set off down the street together, walking side by side in silence.
There was no need for words between us; we knew each other too well for that.
Our destination was a few miles away, but we made good time despite the snow and ice covering the streets.

But there were still plenty of cars and other obstacles in our way.
We picked our way through the wreckage as we made our way towards the center of the city.
By the time we got there, the sun was setting in the west.
It cast an eerie orange glow over the desolation that surrounded us.
The sky was filled with smoke and dust, and the air was thick and heavy.
It looked like it might rain or snow again soon.
We needed to find shelter before dark.
We moved quickly through the deserted streets, our footsteps echoing in the silence.
The city was quiet now, but it wouldn’t stay that way for long.
As soon as it got dark, the creatures would come out.
We needed to find shelter before they did.
We reached our destination before long and stopped short.
It was supposed to be a safe place, but it didn’t look like there was anyone home.
I frowned and glanced at Sarah.
She shrugged and motioned for us to keep moving.
We didn’t have time to worry about that now; we had more important things to do.
Together we turned and headed back the way we’d come.
It was getting dark now, and we needed to find shelter before it got too late.
The sun was rising in the east when we finally found what we were looking for.
It wasn’t much, but it would do.
I took a deep breath and stepped inside as Sarah stood watch outside.
The store was small and cramped, with narrow aisles and shelves on either side of us.
The windows were shattered, and there was glass all over the floor.
Most of the products on the shelves had been knocked to the ground and trampled by looters looking for food and supplies.
I took another deep breath and glanced around quickly before I stepped further inside.
I saw no sign of movement or life other than my own shadow cast by the dim light filtering through the windows.
I slipped inside and carefully made my way through the aisles towards the back of the store where I could see an old cooler with its door hanging open.
The cooler was empty, but I found a few cans of food on the shelves behind it that looked like they might be salvageable.
They were dusty and dented, but they were still sealed, and they didn’t look like they’d been tampered with.
I picked them up and checked the expiration dates.
They were still good, or at least they should be.
Food didn’t really expire in the same way it used to, not anymore.
It just got stale or went bad after a while.
But these cans looked like they should be okay.
I put them in my pack and headed back towards the front of the store.
Sarah was waiting for me by the entrance, her eyes scanning the street outside.
I stepped outside and handed her the pack, and she took it without saying anything.
We stood there in silence for a moment, looking at each other as the sun rose higher in the sky.
We both knew what we had to do.
There was no point in talking about it; we just needed to do it.
We nodded at each other, and I turned and headed down the street.

We didn’t have much time left before the sun went down, and we needed to find someplace to take shelter for the night.
Sarah followed me, her footsteps echoing in the silence as we made our way down the street.
We moved quickly and quietly, checking each building as we passed in case there was something inside that we could use or salvage.
As the sun rose higher in the sky, the temperature began to rise with it, and we could feel the heat pressing down on us as we walked.
I wiped the sweat from my forehead with the back of my hand and kept moving.
It wouldn’t be long before it got too hot to keep going, and we needed to find someplace to rest before that happened.
After a few minutes, I spotted another building up ahead and motioned for Sarah to follow me as I headed inside.
The building was deserted, but it wasn’t empty.
There were a few old tables and chairs scattered around the room, and the floor was covered in dust and debris.
We went through the building quickly, checking for anything we could use or salvage, but we didn’t find much: just a few more cans of food and a couple of bottles of water.
When we were done, we stepped back outside and looked around.
The sun was high in the sky, and it was getting hotter by the minute.
We needed to find someplace to take shelter for the night before it got too hot to keep moving.
We looked around for a moment, trying to decide which way to go, when I heard a distant rumble in the distance.
I glanced in the direction of the sound and saw plumes of smoke rising up into the sky.
There was a battle going on somewhere out there, not too far away.
It wasn’t our problem, but it was still a grim reminder of the dangers that lurked out there in the ruins of this once-great city.
Sarah noticed me looking and placed a reassuring hand on my shoulder.
I turned and met her gaze, and she gave me a small smile.
“It’ll be okay,” she said softly.
I nodded and returned her smile, then motioned for her to follow me as I headed down the street.
We walked in silence for a while, neither of us saying anything as we made our way through the deserted streets.
We passed a few more buildings, but they were all empty, so we kept moving.
Eventually, we came to another building that looked like it might be a good place to take shelter for the night.
It was a tall, sturdy-looking structure with thick stone walls and a heavy wooden door that looked like it would be difficult to break into.
I motioned for Sarah to follow me as I headed inside, and she did without saying anything.
The inside of the building was dark and cool, with narrow staircases leading up to the upper floors.
It was an old church, or at least what was left of one.
The walls were covered with faded frescoes depicting scenes from the bible, but most of them had been destroyed or defaced over the years.
The windows were stained glass, but they were all broken, with only fragments of colored glass remaining.
It wasn’t much, but it would do.
