The Journal of Katria Stevens
I was thirteen the day the world as we knew it ended. The day the aliens invaded.
I suppose I was fortunate, in that both my parents were employed by the government. The public was fed a story about a terroristic threat to explain the presence of armed troops. I met a few of those soldiers as they stood guard outside my school. Since I was at an impressionable age, just entering puberty, I found the leader of those who waited by the outdoor patio handsome. His name was Jack Monroe.
