Children of the Apocalypse @TheAustinBriggs

Children of the Apocalypse

Todd takes a drag from a cigarette and turns to his wife. “I’m worried about the kids, dear.”

Mildred watches the shambling kids, beaming with pride. “Mary and her siblings are having such fun.”

Disgusted, he stands to leave. “You can’t expect love to bring her back!”

“Love never dies,Todd, but you wouldn’t understand.”
