The Crumbling Empire
Sir Edward Bartlett
t takes some time for the door to open, but Sir Edward North is still alive. The house smells of flowers and potpourri something you remember from your childhood. There are flowers in the hallway although they are wilting now, it seems they have not been changed in some time. He has not been outside since the apocalypse as they have been ill. They slept for many hours, with bottled tonic water beside their bed. Eventually, they became curious why nobody had checked on them, and rose to investigate. It seemed very odd that London was so empty and it was a stroke of luck that their relative has called in on them.
They are content as they have a large larder with plenty of bottled tonics and juices to drink. They believe that there should be a few other people in London alive so all will be well, this is Britain after all!
