Sam sat on the bed, shaking, staring blankly out the window into the night.

He was completely spent, reeked of smoke, hair sweaty and plastered against his face.

Everything my brother had worked for, dreamed of, cherished and loved was gone.

Destroyed.

I sat on the bed across from him, nudged him with a knee to gain his attention.

"Sammy?"

Sam drew his gaze from the window, an end of the world look filling his eyes.

I swallowed, there was nothing that would ease his pain. I placed a hand to his shoulder gripping tight, helplessly watching while he cried.
