When we last visited this planet, the white lines were dividers between each human’s vehicle. So many vehicles, so many people.

Where have they all gone? That one – scan him. Yes, another malnourished, signs of radiation sickness.

Written for Kat Myrman’s Twittering Tales Challenge – something about the aerial viewpoint and the bleak emptiness of this scene got me thinking about something along dystopian post-apocalyptic lines! Look forward to see what everyone else comes up with, and thanks again Kat for hosting this weekly challenge!
