Chapter 1: Prologue

He watches as the dark clouds overcome the clear blue sky. His gaze flicker back to the bright red mountain miles and miles away from him. The citizens were running away, dress in their robes, clinging on to little hope they had left. Many children were left abandon near the door of the stone houses or in the middle of the street. He adverted his gaze to the burning house before him. The fire continued to spread quickly through the dark sky. The air was becoming thicker and hotter by the minute. Ashes thrash out from inside the bright red mountain. He closes his eyes and thought back to the beautiful city it once were. His home, his joy, his Pompeii.
