Tomorrow (Chapter 3)(Several days prior; the night following the end of the war.)Tomorrow (Chapter 3) by Bairdsgirl11797
Hours. It had been only hours since Adam Fenix’s device had activated, and the war against the locust horde had ended. Everything was still in a dream-like state, and Samantha Byrne had to keep reminding herself that what had happened, had happened, and that life would have to keep moving, new direction or not.
She sighed, taking off the last of her armor and tossed it on the queen sized mattress, which was the centerpiece of the lavish hotel room she had chosen to stay in. If there had been more modest accommodations, Sam would’ve taken them in a heartbeat, but everything about the entire building oozed copious elegance, and she despised it. It felt wrong to be living in such leisure, when so many of her comrades didn’t even live to see it; like Dom.
In fact, she decided that there were only two things she could deal with--maybe take some enjoyment in--while living in
Tomorrow (Chapter 2)Samantha Byrne stood dead still, hands and knees shaking while she looked on at the four people in front of her. They simply stared back, both motionless and completely devoid of expression. She dared not take her eyes away from the silent figures, but from what she could see in her peripheral, she was in the middle of a gray wasteland, wisps of white smoke spread around her and the apparent “family”, who were unblinking. There was virtually nothing in the barren gray atmosphere; land and sky seemed to be one in the same, and it all remained morbidly silent.Tomorrow (Chapter 2) by Bairdsgirl11797
Sam couldn’t remember how she had gotten there, or any events prior to when the family had spotted her.
And what a family they were.
The father- or at least Sam assumed it was the father -stood in the middle of the small group, with a stance she could only describe as protective. His flesh was burned beyond recognition, and from what Sam could see through his tattered clothing, his arms and legs were blistered

Only for them.
That’s the phrase that has been my mantra for the last few hours; whenever I start second guessing myself about getting on this boat, I repeat it, over and over and over. In the middle of the ocean is about the last place I want to be right now, but if it gives me the chance to see them all again-Marcus, Dom and the rest- so be it.
The war was over. It was difficult to try to imagine the meaning of those words, but those electric blue shockwaves that killed the grubs on contact a few days ago held no room for doubt that Marcus’s dad had done something right. Still, the very thought of it was still a little less then surreal; 18 years of fighting the bastards, and it took less then a day to finally finish them off.
We got the call from Marcus only yesterday, and we hadn’t lost any time in leaving for Azura as soon as possible. I had tried my best to convince Vic to let us ride via King Raven, but to him, boat see

Sam had done her best to avoid Baird over the last two weeks. She hadn't spoken to him since their conversation on the beach. She decided that it was best to try and forget everything he said to her. Instead, she decided to distance herself form him.
“That's what I should have done with Dom. Then maybe it wouldn't have hurt so much when I lost him” That's exactly how she felt about Baird right now, and keeping her distance from him made sense to her. She was afraid if she didn't keep her distance, she might end up feeling something she didn't want to feel.
Baird had noticed that Sam was avoiding him. He was glad that she hadn't asked any further questions about what he'd said to her that morning. But the fact that she'd barely said two words to him unsettled him a bit. He at least wanted them to be friends, but all she was doing now, was only pushing him away. “What did I do to make her avoid me
