Mundee 1-1-3000 (New Years Dee) Time: 03:00:01 a.m. (ante meridiem - Latin)
My name is Sartheya... Typical start to a dee'rey entry...
J'ihn gave me this dee'rey for Winter Und...
Me, J'ihn, Cissie, Finlo an' Puzu stayed up to watch the celebratory gun-shots for New Years Dee...
Everyone except the dead bodies in there graves...
Now stop being so grim Sartheya!
But then again war is grim...
Hopefully (very hopefully) happiness will come with the new century...
Sartheya tucks her dee'ray away and try to fall asleep, she could feel the hard ground underneath her sleeping-bag and can hear Finlo and Cissies alternate snoring.
The last time she slept out in the open was on a camping trip with her parents, before the war
But now she was the second in command for War Sector 3 and life was... different.
"RISE 'N' SHINE!"
Sartheya longed to roll over and fall back asleep, but she was second in command so, she had to set a good example.
She got up and started melding into the early din.
Her and her best friends; J'ihn, Puzu, Cissie and Finlo, all slept in a tight huddle to ward of the cold and just so that friends could be near each other.
Other huddles like this were dotted around War Sector 3 (WS3).
Puzu was currently trying to wake up his sister, Cissie, who was a rather heavy sleeper.
She looked at her wrist-clock it showed 5:03:02.
Typical, thought Sartheya, 2hrs sleep, to Sartheya it felt like 2 minutes.
"I'm gonna wake the others" Sartheya said gesturing to the other groups near them in WS3.
The others nodded in reply.
She went round tapping on shoulders and slapping in faces with the call of:
"RISE 'N' SHINE!"
Sartheya and the others went and joined the queue for the measly broth and hunk of stale bread the people of Termná'c had to cope with.
Suddenly there was a cry of "Dragon Lord Approaching! Repeat: Dragon Lord Approaching! REAPEAT: DRAGON LORD APPROACHING!"
End Of Chapter 1!
