Final submission. Feedback welcome all the same. I love opinions.

With special thanks to Elaine Louise and Faith Linn, who have helped me more than they know or this piece shows.

Thank you so much for your time!

The End

August 3, 2016

I met him at the end of the war and the world.
    Amid dust and smog and fluttering debris. Amid the reek of dry blood and ash and death. Amid silence.
    We must have been the last two survivors on Earth.
    “What have we done?” he murmured, gazing wide-eyed across the moonscape.
    I scuffed a piece of shrapnel. “We got angry, I guess.”
    “Everything’s gone…”
    “Yeah.”
    “What do we do now?”
    “Don’t know… Start over, I guess.”
    We looked at each other.
    “What’s your name?” he asked.
    “Dawn,” I said.
    “I’ll call you Eve.”

    Thank you once again, Faith, for your support and suggestions! Flash fiction is really tricky and it's nice to feel that I'm succeeding. As for your question, I'll have to think about that . . .
