Standing at the exit of Vault 101’s entrance cave, light leaked through the rotten decayed boards of the makeshift door, exposing the cave’s damp walls and the putrid decomposed bodies of those not able to secure safety inside the vault. What he had seen alone in this cave had been enough to make him question whether venturing on is a good idea but realised that he cannot go back. Not now. Continue reading
