Natalie finally made it back to base, and entered through the front. She quickly took it upon herself to commandeer the sun chips and to make sure that none went to waste. She got to work immediately, stuffing sun chips into her mouth and laying back on the torn couch that they had brought into the base. As Natalie continued half way through the bag, her mind started to wander back to the old memories. She smiled as she began to remember life before the invasion, before she became a " Ghost ", and even before she discovered sun chips. Natalie giggled a bit, but then the same dark memory that has haunted her all her life was back, and this time it would not be shrugged off ever so slightly. Natalie closed her eyes and tried to think of something else, but the memory engulfed her and she was forced to relive that fateful night in August, 12 years ago.
