It will be recorded in history books that the day was partly cloudy, temperature was 13°C, with humidity slightly higher than usual. It will be recorded there were no warning signs, nothing unusual about that morning.
It will be strange to explain how the entire population vanished in a single moment.
It will be even harder to understand why one woman was left behind.
Melanie didn’t panic, equanimity was always her strong suit. Instead, she picked up her camera and captured her reflection in a window, thinking: Cheer up, darling. It could be so much worse. He is gone, too.
