    Max sighed in relief, he’d survived! He stood up, but then stared in horror at the remnants of his home. It was all gone. New York had fallen. He seemed to be the only survivor…

    Penny had survived much worse than this. She was stood on a pile of rubble and was using her binoculars to see if she could scavenge anything valuable. ‘This is what they get,’ she thought, ‘this city is one of the most polluted cities in the world!’ Nothing of value seemed to have survived and then resurfaced in the rubble. She sighed. She had to migrate to a new city, London, the only safe place…

    Josephine, formerly know as Jo by her friends, ran through the dead streets of New York. Her long hair was all over her face, but she honestly didn’t care, she just kept running. She was lost, cold and afraid. Everyone she loved was gone. She was alone, alone at last.

    Max is the person on the left, Penny is the person on the right and Jo is the person in the middle!
