  3. This is part four to my mini series I recommend reading part one https://hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/22813-the-day-the-world-went-dark/ Part two https://hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/35340-unfriendly-encounters/ And part three https://hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/35341-mans-best-friend/ Most of you already know that im not Canadian so im sorry if I got anything wrong about Canada I got most of my info about Canada from a few google searches. Anyway enjoy! The lights We were now around a hour away from home and the weather was getting worse by the minute. I could fell my the cold wind slip through the cracks in my jacket and my fingers were becoming numb. Riley was walking right next to me practically rubbing up against my leg. I looked to Riley and said “It’s okay boy I’m sure we will be there soon” We were now coming close to the small cozy urban home I called home. I looked to my left and I could see the sun over what I thought was Timber wolf mountain but finally we were home. I walked through the front yard and onto my front porch with my new friend at my side I grabbed the key from under the welcome mat and put the key into the lock I then looked back at Riley and said “ Okay, Before you go inside we need to set some ground rules one don’t sleep on the couch two don’t eat everything and three please don’t pee on anything.... Okay now that we have some rules... Welcome home” Before I could even open the door half way, Riley had already bolted inside. I walked after him and closed and locked the door behind me. I walked into the kitchen took off my jacket and hiking pack and put them on one of dining room chairs. I turn back to the living room to see Riley sniffing all the furniture “Hey are you hungry?” I said to Riley while slipping on a cooking apron He barked and laid down on my rug in the living room “Okay, I’ll take that as a yes” I grabbed the lighter from the over head cabinet and lite the propane stove. I took a short moment to defrost my hands with the small propane burner. After a hour of cooking I made Spaghetti with out any meat since everything in the fridge spoiled. I put some on a plate for me, I then turned around and took out the small container of dog food from my hiking pack and put some into a bowl with some spaghetti on top for Riley I place his bowl on the floor and said with a grin “Bone-appetit hope you enjoy” he walked over and started eating. I sat down in my chair and started eating as well. I was in the middle of chewing when I looked down at Riley and said “Lucky for both of us my sister taught me how to cook” After our nice meal Riley had walked into the living room and lied down so I grabbed a large pot and filled it with snow from outside. I came back inside and set the pot on the stove to boil I turn back to the living room to see Riley asleep on the rug. I put Riley’s bowl and my plate into the sink and started to use the now melting water to clean them. I cleaned the plate then bowl, when I was done I started drying off my hand with a rag I looked out the window above the sink, I could see the last bit of sun light disappearing behind Timber wolf mountain and then I notice that there was a odd green hue forming over the mountain “Hm, that’s odd” I said to my self while tossing the rag down on the counter I assumed it was nothing and forgot about it soon after. I walked though the living room into my bed room and said “Come on Riley” I walked over to my bed at sat on the edge of the frame I started taking off my boots when Riley slowly trotted though the door he then laid down next to my bed. I laid down and pulled the blankets over me. I looked to my left and said “You could lay on the bed you know... nothings stopping you” He didn’t move so I rolled over and closed my eyes soon after I grinned when I felt Riley jump up and lay on the bed. now with the comfort of my new friend at my feet I slowly drifted off to sleep... I woke up suddenly with Riley barking and howling vigorously “What is it? I said while barely opening my eyes... I could see that the lights were on and the windows were glowing in a bright green and blue color. I got up ran to the living room to see that the lights and TV were on “POWER!” I yelled while running back to my bed room closet I opened the closet and pulled out the small gun safe I put in the code -BEEP BEEP- I almost cried when I heard the sweet irritating sound of the safe unlocking I grabbed the the small handgun and magazine from the safe I looked up from the safe when I could hear a strange robotic voice coming from the kitchen I got up and walked to the kitchen while still hearing Riley barking and howling from the other room I heard the robotic voice say “THE MESSAGE WILL NOW REPEAT” followed by high pitched beeping I walked over into the corner of the room to see that it was the radio I walked over to the radio and listened in “THE FOLLOWING IS NOT A TEST ... THE PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA HAS ISSUED A MANDATORY EVACUATION OF THE FOLLOWING CITYS MONTREAL,TORONTO,OTTAWA,QUEBEC CITY,LEVIS -Static- AVOID CONTACT WITH PETS AND WILDLIFE -BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP- THE MESSAGE WILL NOW REPEAT” “My god...” TO BE CONTINUED Thank YOU guy's for all your support! Shout out to Pancakelady and DarkLink9994! If you guy's have any idea's on how I should post these part's let me know. im thinking ether one post and just post the new part's in the comment's or just keep making new post's for each part.
  4. True, But when your reading and you don't want to waste any fuel just use a match and light the candle then you have some light for a few hours.
  5. I think candles would be nice. It would be something I would use inside when it is night and I need to see my fire wood also maybe being able to read books at night.
  6. Just got done with writing part 4. Thank you for understanding I try my best to fix everything but there is always something that gets past me.
  7. Part two and three are now out.

  8. If you come across anything that does not make any sense then please inform me and I will gladly fix it.
  9. This is part three to my short story's I recommend reading part one https://hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/22813-the-day-the-world-went-dark/?tab=comments#comment-158070 and reading part two https://hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/35340-unfriendly-encounters/ Hope you enjoy. Man’s best friend I woke in a panic from the dream I’d just had of me still being trapped in my squad car. I caught my breath only to realize that I was still safe and sound tucked under my blankets in my bed room. I looked up at the ceiling and pulled the blankets off of me “Here we go again” I said with a sigh while getting up and sitting on ridge of the bed. Weather does not sound that bad I said in my head while getting to my feet and walking to the window in the corner of the room, I whipped the frost off the window and peered out “looks like a clear day to” I said with a grin. I turned back and walked to my gun safe only to find out the electric keypad fried to “Great, so close yet so far” I said in my head. After several hours of planning and thinking ahead of time my plan was to walk back to the police station and find out if any of my coworker were still there and if they knew what happened. after eating a small breakfast I was finally ready to walk out the door and then I thought “Okay, hopefully I don’t get shot or knocked out this time” OH! speaking of getting shot I remembered to grab some painkillers from the medical cabinet. When I got back from the bathroom I opened the front door and stepped out. I took a second to breath in the cold winter air and then turned around and locked the door and put the key back under the welcome mat “Okay.” I said with a large ex-hail while walking off the front porch. After a four hour hike to the police station I was getting close. I stooped at the side of the road and took a small victory/snack break. I took off the small hiking pack I brought with me, and pulled out a few energy bars and two sodas. After enjoying my “Lunch” I got up and proceeded on my hike. It was around 1pm when I came over a hill’s crest to see the police station. I jogged to the police stations parking lot and rushed to the front glass door, it was locked and the window was frosted over. I banged on the door and yelled the name of my fellow officers to see if I would get a response “JOHN! RICHMOND! ANYONE?!? ITS ME!” after that it was quite only the sound of the loud winter wind picking up. I walked around back to find out that the back door was locked “I need to get in there” I said while peering thru the small window on the door. “GUYS I’M COMING IN DONT SHOOT!” I yelled while getting ready to break the window with my elbow “CRACK” the window Shattered and I broke off the the glass lining the door. I reached my arm inside and reached for the handle “click” I pulled my arm out and opened the door. I slowly opened the door and took my first step inside. “guys?” I could now see that no one was here or has been here for some time. I took a few more steps inside on stepped on some glass from the window “CRACK crunch” “SCREECH” I spot it my tracks when I heard the sound of metal scooting against the floor “Hello?” I said while walking to where I heard the sound. The sound came from the break room and that’s when I heard what sounded like whimpers I turned the corner into the break room and then I saw it or I guess “him” It was Riley the stations only K.9 Unit I looked around for officer Richmond who is his handler and it was just him. He sat up and looked at me and whimpered “Hey boy it’s me remember” I said while slowly walking to him with my hand extended for him to smell. “It’s okay it’s just me” and then I noticed that his leash covered in chew marks was wrapped around one of the leg’s of Richmond’s desk. He gave my hand a few sniff’s and a lick so I pet him on the head now that we finished our “reunion” I reached under the desk and lifted it up and freed the leash. I could tell that he was hungry because as soon as I motioned food his tail started to wag “ Okay I’ll be right back” I got up and started to walk to the back room when I got to the door Riley then got up and barked “What?” I said in a confused voice while he walked over to me. he then whimpered again and laid down on my leg I knelt down and pet is back “It’s okay I’m not leaving you” I said while he was looking up at me. I got up and opened the door to the back room and stepped inside and walked to the back of the small storage room I turned back and looked out the door to see Riley getting up again ready to walk to me “Stay it crowded enough in here” I grabbed a 25id bag of dog food from one of the shelf’s I walked back to the room that Riley was in. “See I didn’t leave you” I said while walking to his food and water bowl next to the desk when I got to his bowls I could see that his food bowl was empty and his water bowl was frozen solid. I knelt down and opened the bag of dog food and poured the food into his bowl I turned around when I heard Riley nails scratching against the tail floor he came walking over and start eating. I picked up his water bowl and flipped it over and the ice fell out when it hit the ground Riley jump but soon went back to eating. I put the bowl back down and took off my back pack and put it on the desk I opened it and pulled out the one soda left over from my “lunch” I cracked it open a poured it into his bowl “I’m sorry it not water but it was mostly likely water at one point. After 10 to 20 minutes of searching the police station I was satisfied with what I got from my trip not only did I make a new friend but there was a old fully stocked vending machine. Riley was done eating so I said “Come on boy let’s get moving” he got up and I put some dog food in my bag. We started walking to the back door but when we were walking past the front desk I stopped and grab a pen and a small piece of paper and told Riley to stay I walk back to Richmond’s desk and I wrote “Don’t worry I have Riley hes safe signed Unit 109“ I tried to avoid name because I did not know who else could read the note. I walk back to the door and said “ Okay Riley let go I think your going to like my place” We took our first steps out and I closed the door behind us. I could tell that Riley was happy to be out because he was rolling in the snow as soon as we got out and I think he could tell that I was happy to have a friend. We started our walk back to the house. THE END To be continued
  10. This is part two of "The day the world went dark" I recommend reading the first part before reading this. https://hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/22813-the-day-the-world-went-dark/?tab=comments#comment-158070 This story is not "fully done I would say it is mostly done it has some typos and maybe a few repeated words im sorry if you come across any but tell me and i'll fix them" _____________________________________________________________________________________________ Unfriendly encounters It was now around 10 or 11am and I had been walking for at least an hour. I could now feel the cold seeping into my jacket. I had to keep moving or I would freeze to death. I looked ahead to see that there was a bridge with a sign around 200 meters away, I started jogging to the bridge with every step hurting more than the last when I finally got to the sign it said “Town of Milton Est. 1911“ After reading the sign I started limping across the bridge when I finally got to the other side I looked around and noticed the town looked mostly abandoned... I then started walking down the main road, after a few short minutes walking I noticed a old post office. then’ I cupped my hand around my mouth and yelled out “HELLO, IS ANYBODY THERE?!?” there was no response. I walked up a small hill to get to the door of the post office when I got to the door and knocked. I put my ear to the door, but heard nothing... I put my hand on the door and said “Great Bear Island Police Department I’m coming in.” I slowly opened the door and stepped in. There was no one there not even the post master. I turned back and closed the door behind me. I then took a small amount of time to look at my surroundings. I walked to the front desk and lo and behold there was a old unopened Summit soda “Oh thank God!” I said in joy while grabbing and opening the soda. As I started drinking the soda, I walked to the front window and looked out on the small town. I noticed another small building close by. The sign read “Milton Credit Union” I might check there next I said in my head while finishing the soda. “Okay well time to finish up here” I said, while walking to the back of the building I started searching around. “This place is a mess” I said to myself after searching through piles of papers in the dark for several minutes. I found a half empty unfrozen bottle of water and two energy bars. I went back to the front door and looked back into the dark and empty post office and said “What happened here?” I turned back, opened the door and stepped out. The wind was starting to pick up and my ears were getting cold so I flipped up my uniform collar and tried to cover my ears while walking down the hill towards the credit union. When I got closer I noticed that the credit union’s windows were boarded up. Upon reaching the door, I un-clipped my holster and opened the door slowly and stepped inside when I went to close the door behind me I heard what sounded like a empty can falling over. I whipped around to where I heard the sound and un-holstered my revolver “Hello?” I said in a nervous voice while stepping into the main lobby area then I heard is-is that crying? I said “Is anybody the....” I felt the cold metal barrel of a gun at the back of my head I then heard the person behind me say "Lass die Waffe fallen...” “What?!” I said in a confused voice he responded with “ TROPFEN SIE JETZT!” “I DONT UNDERSTAND!”I said in a panicked and terrified voice with him responding again “TROPFEN SIE DIE WAFFE, DIE ICH SIE NICHT HURT” Then next thing I know I hear a loud “thud” I fell to the ground and looked over into the lobby to see the mans family come running out of hiding as the room faded to black... “AH!” I said while getting up and hitting my head on something and falling back onto my back “What the hell?” I said in a panicked voice I was no longer in the credit union I was in a small dark confined space “HELLO IS ANYBODY THERE!?” I yelling in a scared and terrified voice I was so cold I went to reach into my jacket pocket but there was no pocket to reach for my parka was missing so was my utility belt at this point I was losing it I started to hyperventilate “Okay-Okay Caleb get a hold of yourself...” I said to myself while trying to catch my breath “Okay do not panic...” I started to feel around in the darkness I could feel two objects but that was it. Where was I? I said in my head I then could feel a hatch above me that was locked at least I think it is a hatch? I then propped myself around and put my boots to the hatch “Okay One Two THREE!” I kicked the hatch with all I had in me “Again One Two THREE!” I kicked again and a sharp pain went up my spine “AHHHH!” I screamed while putting my hand on my wound “Okay-okay last time” I said to myself while trying to regain my strength “One Two THREE!” when I kicked the hatch I heard the sound of breaking metal as the hatch broke open I looked out to see that I was locked in a trunk of a car parked on the side of the road. I slowly got to my feet and looked back into the trunk and I could see that there was a can of pork and beans next to a soda with a note “Why?” I said with a shiver, The note said “ Es tut mir leid, dass ich es für meine Familie tun musste. Ich hatte keine Ahnung, dass Sie ein Polizist waren. Wir besuchten unser Familienmitglied hier, als der Sturm passierte. Bitte vergib uns, wir mussten das für unser Überleben tun.” -Jacob “Is-is that German?” I said while trying to remember what little German I did know, but I knew very little all I could get from the note was words like sorry, family and visit but at the end it said survival I did not know what to think of this note so I folded it up and put it in my pant pocket... I still had my bloody uniform top and pants and I was surprised to see that they did not take my boots I grabbed the can of beans and put them in my front pocket then did the same to the soda I then walked to the car door and opened it, there was a hoodie with a thick blanket next to it on the drivers seat I grabbed the hoodie and it on and wrapped the blanket tight around me. I turn to the road and start walking. I was trying to put together what happened what I came up with was that the man, assuming that he is “Jacob” in the note, that him and his family were stranded in the credit union freezing and they needed my jacket... That was about as much as I could come up with until I noticed that I knew this road I live on this road...I started to jog up the road after five, maybe ten, minutes I could see an old deer crossing sign that always told me that I take the next right to pull into my drive way. “YES!” I said with joy while passing the sign. Continuing down the road, I could see my wood fence and front gate. I ran over, not even taking the time to open the gate, and just jumped over it and ran down my lawn to my front porch. When I got there my hands were so cold. I reached under my welcome mat and grabbed my house keys and unlocked my door “Oh thank God...” I said while opening the door and stepping inside I reached over to the light switch to see if it will work “flick” the lights did not turn on... “Guess all power went out then...” I said in a worried voice I then walked to my living room fire place and grabbed the wood I kept inside for emergencies and placed them into the fire place and grabbed a tinder plug and matches from the cabinet next to the fire place. I got on my knees and after a few tries I got the fire to light. I blew on the flame until it caught fire to the wood after that I got up and walked to the bed room and went to my closet and grabbed the thickest coat I had and walked back to the living room and sat down on the couch in-front of the fire and placed the winter clothes next to me “for once i’m actually hot" I said in a joyful voice while unwrapping the blanket from myself I folded it up and put it down next to me I got up and started walking to the kitchen while taking off my uniform when I got to the kitchen I threw my bloody uniform on the counter and walked into the bath room and opened the medical cabinet and grabbed some pain killers. I walk to the sink and turned on the faucet but there was no water, whatever that weird storm was it must have fried my water pump too I then looked to the toilet and took the cover off and looked in... “well its better then nothing” I said to myself in a Nervous voice as I turn back and got a cup from the kitchen and walk back to the toilet I filled the cup up and took the pain killers “Well I guess its not that bad...” I said with a sigh while finishing the glass of water I took a deep breath “right lets do this” I said with a scared voice as I looked back into the medical cabinet and grabbed a pair of tweezers,bandages and rubbing alcohol and set them on the ground I walked over and looked in the cabinet under the sink and grabbed the sewing kit I then sat down with my back against the tub and used the rubbing alcohol to clean the tweezers and sewing needle... After few painful hours of pulling out a bullet and giving my self stitches I was done and it was going on 9:30pm “Okay suck it up” I said to myself in a confident voice while getting to my feet when I did get up I walked back to the living room and got dressed in-front of the fire at this point most of the house was warm so I walked back to my room and sat on my bed and took off my boots “it has been at least two days since I got a good nights sleep” I said in my head while laying down as I was going to sleep I was stuck thinking what has happened to my family and if they were okay I was worried but at least I was safe THE END
