    Bursts of ash and flame filled the autumn air as I wandered my way to my next appointment. My steps were loud due to the sheer silence that was almost as thick as the smoke around me. My eyes wandered the empty streets of what used to be London. The buildings around were either ablaze or completely dilapidated. Neglect was cruel but destruction was even more so in this world of nothingness.
    The whole world was beaten and bruised beyond repair and humans began to not care what had to be said, they acted on their own. No rules let the evil run free while the innocent screamed in terror, but before anyone could help the deed was done. Some survivors still wander the torn paved roads, forever moving for fear of being brutally slaughtered.
    I glanced at my pocket watch, realizing I would be late if I did not hurry. I paced myself at a steady trot, not wanting to tire myself out. Inhaling the disgusting air and letting it fill my lungs only to cough it out seconds later. I slowed a bit and glanced around, trying to find the street I was supposed to enter.
    "Miss?" a hoarse voice called out and I turned to greet it.
    "Yes?" I questioned the blond before me.
    "Does fear not reside in your body?" he inquired. He must have seen how I stayed on path, never veering or hiding.
    "Not at all.." I commented nonchalantly.
    He nodded and stared at me with dull emerald orbs. They looked me up and down before a gentle sigh escaped the man's chapped and bleeding lips. "How do you stay healthy?"
    "I am not alive..."
    He looked at me as though I had sprouted another head.
    My eyes left the man to glance to the pocket watch I had unconsciously pulled out from the soft fabric of my top. My face contorted with annoyance. I would definitely be late if I did not run.
    "Why are you here in London?" he asked, snapping me from my thoughts.
    "I have business to take care of." I answered softly.
    He stared into my eyes for a moment.  "I was immortal at one point..."
    The comment was so out of the blue that I had to stare at him, wondering if he would continue the thought.
    "But now I rely on my people..." he continued. "Once their gone...I will cease to live as well..."
    The man before me was like how I was at one point, breathing, living,...feeling. I had not felt since the day I was given my job. But now, I felt pity towards this man.
    "I'm sorry for your misfortune.." I replied as sincerely as I could manage.
    He walked over to me and rested a bruised hand on my shoulder. "It's fine...I wouldn't want to live without them anyways."
    I felt a tear begin to spread in my heart and was shocked by the sudden impact he had on me. "What is your name?" I asked curiously, my voice breaking a tad.
    "Arthur..." he smiled softly. "Arthur Kirkland."
    "Arthur..." I repeated, testing out his name on my tongue. "I will always remember you, even after you've perished and long been gone."
    His smile grew a little, making my heart flutter just a tad. What was this emotion called?
    A soft squeal hissed through the air and I turned to see it's source. Metal soared through the open sky, crying out as it headed towards the ground.
    I turned back to Arthur, who was staring in horror and whispered. "I'm late....I'm late.." I felt a single tear run down my cheek as the bomb exploded on the ground. "For a very important...date.."
    Arthur's eyes dulled even more as blood-curdling screams rippled through the air.
    I wrapped my arms around him and lowered both our bodies to the ground. "No time to say hello. Goodbye. I'm late...I'm late....I'm late..."
    Before he passed completely his eyes met mine, a glimmer of happiness in them and a small smile resting on his lips.
    That's right...It's called love...
