TFP: Where were you when the world ended?Sundown had come and went; the military base was pretty much closed up for the night. Everyone off duty were expected to be in for the night, and the same applied for their inhuman guests as well. Unfortunately, it seemed like the newest recruits hadn’t gotten the memo; or maybe they had seeing as they were trying o sneak back in undetected.

and thinking fervently
