August... that's where it all began.

My nightmares... Our nightmares.

I'd wake up, cold sweat coating my body. The TV would still be on.

By the time I had fully woken up, the news would come on...

"Good evening and welcome.". The same greeting. Day in, day out. Night in, night out. And then, they began... "Last night, there has been an increase in the number infected with the newly found disease, the Pallidus Expuli Tussim Virus, which is also known as the PET Virus. This is the current name the epidemiologists have given this pathogen. And, as previously claimed, more research is needed into looking at whether or not this virus had evolved from an already existing disease. Last night, we heard, microbiologists say that the PET Virus is unlike any virus that they have ever seen under a microscope. Scientists are looking into a probable cause of this epidemic being the increased amounts of space debris entering the Earth's atmosphere. But this theory still needs further concrete evidence. Such was announced by the leading scientist in this investigation, Scientist Fabian Cox. We also got an insight into the symptoms of this illness and they are shown to be similar to the common flu. If you have any of the following symptoms - a high fever, runny and blocked nose, intense stomach pain and diarrhoea, coughing, nausea, vomiting and headaches, you are advised to stay at home to protect those who may be vulnerable to this virus...".

Symptoms of the common flu, eh? Little did we know... little did we know it was to be so much worse than that. From the common flu, you can heal both physically. Mentally. But from this... the PET virus, you'd be in fucking luck to come out with one of the two healed...

As August rolled by, the infections only continued to further rise. Each day, the number of infected would beat that of the day previous.

And then, by the end of August...

"... We have received the news that last night, the very first deaths caused by PET Virus had occurred. People are asked to cooperate, to be and to stay responsible...".

And then, a few days later...

"... famous Astronaut Christopher Russell, aged 36, who had returned from his famous space expedition to Planet Ziva, passed away last night. The reason for death is said to be the PET Virus...".

Not long after that, the news spread that the rest of the team that went on the space mission to Planet Ziva were also diagnosed with the PET Virus. But, miraculously, within a few days, they all managed to recover.

The death toll and the amount of infected continued to grow gradually through the first half of September. But... Something happened in the second half...

The cases skyrocketed...

On the Irish island, at the beginning of a week near the end of September, the number of cases was in around 300. But by the end of that same week, the case numbers had escalated so much, that around 1,600 new cases were recorded.

It wasn't only the cases that skyrocketed, the number of deaths also took off.

And from then, we can go on to the month of October...

Monday, October the 7th 2018. I'll never forget that day...

Quite similar can be said for Friday, October the 11th 2018...

That's the day my life had been turned upside down. The day my life changed... forever...
