Kibo smiled, she was his light.Bookmark here

"I will be there all the way for you."Bookmark here

Nina giggled and said, "I am going to get some food, stay here."Bookmark here

An hour passed and Nina still hasn't come back. Kibo left the home and started heading into the market, he saw people running towards him. One of the people that were running towards him told Kibo "Runaway people from other countries are here, run far before you will get their plague." Kibo was terrified. The man that has talked to him earlier added "Don't be worried we called the executioners, they are coming from the capital now. In the meantime, a girl is holding them back for us."Bookmark here

When he arrived, he saw her holding two strangers with no cover on her hands.Bookmark here

"Nina stop they will infect you." Screamed Kibo.Bookmark here

After a couple of minutes of silence, a knock on the door was heard.Bookmark here

"Open up it's the police we were sent by the executioners."Bookmark here

He waited, hasn't moved a muscle, and looking at the ground.Bookmark here

The hour had passed quickly. And Nina was escorted to the stage with an executioner and chains on her hands. Quiet, no one was talking. A large guillotine was in the middle of the stage.Bookmark here
