Chapter 1 'Lonely' by kaylah7
A red beam of light is stuck in her eyes like a laser. Drilled into the brain causing indescribable pain. The cold, steel claws tightened on her neck to block the access of air. Coughing up, tried in vain to break free from the grip. She kicked his legs, banging her fists on blindly. Without effect. All this is not done no impression on the mechanical monster, which stifled her further.

Help nowhere. She is alone. Only she and the machine. Setting around began to blur. Pervasive darkness began to encircle her. Only those eyes shines penetrating red glow. Nothing more except them she did not see. She ceased to defend herself. She could not move. Red light grew until at last turned into a great reflection of a nuclear explosion. She felt like an explosion inside her burns, burns her eyes. She burns all. The only thing she can do is give terrifying scream ...

- What is it, for heaven's sake!? - exclaimed the nurse.

- It's you again, Sarah? Do you have nightmares again?

Sarah did not answer. She did not understand yet that she woke up, and that it was only a dream. She sighed deeply. Air. She needed it very much now. Oxygen in the lungs ... Slowly the shock passed. She felt the taste of blood in her mouth. She noticed with surprise how thin trickle of fluid from her lips. She had to bite his mouth to the blood.

- Are you okay? - inquired the nurse.

- Yes ... - Sarah answered with a hoarse voice.

- Calm down dear, it was just a bad dream. Do you want some pills?

- No, thank you. No more drugs. I can handle it ...

Not true. She knew that it was not only a dream. It was a harbinger of future events - terrifying and inevitable. She also was not sure if she can deal with this. After Kyle's death she was alone. Only she knows about the future, the Day of Judgement, Terminators, War and Resistance. The knowledge that nobody else, did not even realize that the apocalypse is coming, meant that the burden of responsibility which now rested on her, it became unbearable.

She was afraid if she will cope with it all. She must be strong. Like Kyle said. Become a legend if she wants it or not. She must change his whole life, learn so many things ... Must be ready when the time comes, to teach her son everything that in the future he became a great John Connor

- Will do it! - she whispered. - I will learn everything. I'll do it for you Kyle! I want to earn on love that you gave to me ...

Memory of her beloved acted like a balm. She is slowly sinking into sleep.
- I love you ... - the last words she added almost silently.

Somewhere between sleep and wakefulness, in the deep seams of the subconscious, she heard a familiar voice: "I will always be with you!"
