A big explosion from outside Cielle’s room woke her up in a gasp. It was four in the midnight that it happened. She was drowsy still, so all the while she thought it was just a dream. When another explosion came near her underground room however, she darted out of bed as quickly as she could.
No. No! What is happening?! she shouted in her thoughts when flames outside showed themselves through the vent. Black smoke rising up the atmosphere where seen too, engulfing what should have been a starry sky in their area.
With her heart threatening to jump out of her chest, she bolted towards the door and turned the knob.
