‘Survive, Stay Alive, Repeat…’ By Aanchal Ratha

Ashlyn lived with her brother, Trent, alone in the house. Her parents worked full time in another state so they both had each other only. An unexpected news of robots taking over was shown. Ash got a call from her parents to board Train B23 with Trent, which would take them to shuttle, for a safe place to live. When they reached the crowded train station to get the tickets, Ashlyn got separated and wasn’t able to board the train on time. She was left back with a few other people and a student from her school. Together they try to find a way to safety, always on the run.
