They had prepared well. Jack was a Plan C man and he had paid attention to the changes in the government. He knew it would only be a matter of time before they came for his wife and made her into one of their breeding vessels. The Restitution Party had slowly taken over the country. In its quest for power and plan for adherence to the strict rules of Spiritual Law, they had “disappeared” the “undesirable” elements of the population.
There had been armed revolts with loss of life on both sides. During a lull, Jack had built a bunker for his family and friends. His engineering skills provided them with a state of the art shelter. Over time, they had stocked it with arms, food, clothes, books and seeds for planting. It would keep his family safe for years. He gathered friends from the “undesirable” elements of the population and aided them in their protection efforts. Each person brought special skills to the group that would help them rebuild their nation.
Soon they were ready for what was to come. When the violence commenced, they dropped into blackness. And waited. And then it happened. Jack and the leaders in the other bunkers flipped the switch. One explosion after another lit the sky above them. What followed was an eerie quiet. Then the sound of birds.
Slowly, the bunker doors opened. Before them lay destruction. In the distance a white flag. It was time for The Renewal. A place where all were free.
