A short story called "Let's Watch the World Burn"

Let's Watch the World Burn

    It was all over the news for the past couple of days. The growing tension between the United States and Russia has been growing with the assassination of the president and the coup that happened the following day. The conservatives finally had their government back. With the new president in power, changes have started appearing all over America. Many of them putting it back into a God fearing country from which it came from. I thought about fleeing, seeing as this country was not the one that I was born in, and that it was slowly moving towards war with most , if not all other World powers because of it idiocy which had taken shape with in. I thought about leaving, and going to country that was not apart of this stupidity that was about to take place, but my apathy dictated me to stay, and just watch how things developed.
    It was a month after the new Government had taken over when it had declared war on the rest of the world, stating that it was not fit to exist except for under the "Democratic" flag of America. I should have left when this happened, but I didn't. I didn't think anything bad would happen if I just kept my head down and let the world continue on to its path of destruction. This is when I met her. She was exactly my type, and we hit it off great. We fell in love after the first week. Then we heard that our country was going to destroy the rest of the world so that only our country can exist. Well Russia was not gonna have any of that so they declared war on America the next day.
    For some reason, no one knows now, someone fired the first shot that would end the world as we know it. After this shot, America with all its power decided it would make an example of Russia by glassing it over with its nuclear arms. Russia decided to stop this and used its own nuclear weapons as soon as we fired our own. When I heard what was happening, I realized it was too late, and ran for her. We then went to the top of the nearest building and watched as our world came to an end. As the mushroom cloud grew, and the shock wave got closer, I looked into her eyes and said "At least I found you in the end". We held each other as our world, and lives, came to an end in the blink of an eye.


  1. I love this. And I want to see more of this story. Realistic apocalypse stories always catch my eyes. <3

  2. Aww that's sweet :) The world might has just came to an end from a nuclear holocaust, but at least that special someone was found at the end.
