Blessed Fate

I watched the two from behind my hiding place.

This wasn’t the first time I had almost been caught.

They appeared to be siblings from the way they communicated almost wordlessly, perhaps even twins, seeing as they both looked around the same age.

I calmed my breathing to a steady pace, keeping it shallow so that I wouldn’t be detected. I had my body under total control.

They looked like they were in trouble, most likely with the Secretist Party like half of the world was.

Pppt! The Secretists could all die for all I cared! The Resistance would live on no matter what! It didn’t matter that I was the last one!

Then something happened that caught my eye immediately.

The boy had just flashed the Resistance sign with his fingers.

And his sister flashed it back with a sad smile on her lips.

I couldn’t believe it! It… it couldn’t be!

I wasn’t the only Resistor left!
