They didn’t come in peace. They came to conquer, and that is exactly what they did.
In a matter of hours, they wiped out all of our defences and most of humanity.
I have been on the run, hiding for the last six weeks, trying desperately to stay alive, even though they have taken everything from me. I fight to stay alive.
Then one night one of them came for me. It was looking for me, and I did the only thing I could do, I fought back. It was the fight of my life, and I ended up on top by sheer luck.
I killed it, but in the process, it changed me, I’m not sure what the changes mean, but they have given me the strength to fight back.
Not only that, they have given me a reason to fight back.

“I don’t know what I will be at the end, but you will be safe.
