"I'll do my best." Louissa says, sounding a little unsure of herself.

With that Alex is off, running like an Olympic sprinter towards where 
she thinks the sound of the baby's cry is coming from.  Louissa does her 
best to keep up, but she's simply not as fast as Alex and is soon a good 
ways behind.

The cries grow louder as Alex approaches the toppled and smoking remains 
of a two storey house.  It comes from the far side and Alex is forced to 
move ought of sight of Louissa, who was already partically obscured by 

There is revealed a tragic sight.  A mother and two children, both no 
more than seven or eight years old, have been gunned down, almost cut in 
half by laser weapon fire.  Behind the mother, in the shattered but 
still standing remains of a door frame can be seen a young baby, maybe 
nine months old, in soot-covered wrappings.  Beyond is the kitchen, 
partially caved in.  It's then that Alex notices the thin rope tied 
around the babies leg, leading to the darkness of the interior.

Alex can now hear Louissa approaching, huffing and puffing loudly.
