You feel safe. The bunker bristles with armaments. You occupy the protection room of the underground vault. Enough supplies to last 8 years stack up high enough to blanket the walls. The trapdoor entrance to the escape tunnel is marked with an X visible only when you wear the special glasses. The danger siren sounds. You raise the special glasses to your eyes. You dive for the now visible X. The long slide to safety fills you half with dread, half with hope. You shoot out into the culvert.

There she is. You die.
