Dead EarthI’ve reached the top of the building. The sky is filled with dark clouds, as is the usual. The air isn’t as toxic up here as it is down at ground level, so I take the opportunity to take my gasmask off. It’s uncomfortable and makes the air taste stale, but I’ve grown accustomed to it now.
