WORD COUNT: 100
A/N: This is a Susan POV (written for dw100 prompt #573: survive; thoughts as time passes after her grandfather (William Hartnell's Doctor) leaves her behind on Earth at the conclusion of “The Dalek Invasion of Earth”
It had gone bad so fast.
Just as a new stability was spreading they were hit by marauders; from the Germanies, and the Mediterranean.
The British islands were destroyed as they fought each other.
David had been executed as a peace dividend.
Before long she was the only one who could even remember the Daleks.
For a while she'd hoped her grandfather would return.
Knowing better made it easier to submit to the truth as Britain was stripped.
As forests were planted; animals farmed; people traded, she found herself leading a resistance.
She only had the key to remind her.
May the Goddess watch over us all,
