We lay there, dead still[2], holding our breath[3], waiting for the moment to pass. My mother had her hand over my little brother's mouth. We could sense their presence above the floorboards[4], scouring[5] the kitchen, scouring the area of all movement, all sound, all smell.
Suddenly, we heard their clunking[6] feet march out[7] of the room. My father let out[8] a sigh of relief[9]. "That too close." he said. "All they had to do lift a floorboard and we would done for[10]". I lay my head on my dusty pillow.

All night the image of two animatronic[11] eyes piercing through the floorboards pasted[12] on my mind.

Next morning I woke up to[13] a drip of water landing[14] on my face. I strained my eyes[15] but could see nothing; only the floorboards above me. Later on that day we shared a loaf of bread and some butter. It the first real food I had in days so I savoured[16] it. It felt like[17] years since I outside. I longed for[18] the feel of crisp air[19] caressing[20] my face, and the smell of fresh towels dancing[21] in the breeze.

The next day, I woke up to hear clunking feet. Instantly[22], I froze. This the closest they ever come before as they checked the storage unit[23]. The second Sweep [24]in two days which meant they on high alert (в полной боевой готовности).

Again, I felt that drip[25] the next day. It wasstarting to bug[26] me, so I moved my pillow to a new location.

With urgency[27], my father woke me up. He pressed his finger against[28] his lips and nodded his head in the direction[29] of the ceiling. There more this time, a dozen or so. This the largest one yet[30]. Suddenly we heard a booming[31] voice from upstairs.

"63% of the human population remaining".

My mother lowered her eyes to the dirty floor in despair[32]. More than half of the earth wiped out[33] by those stupid robots. If I could jumped out and shot them, I would . But what use [34] a gun against impenetrable, fleshless, titanium? We no longer know our rivals. They lack empathy[35], which means FIGHTING futile[36]. Simultaneously[37], I saw two robotic eyes light the corner of our room. This it; I blown[38] our cover.

I backed away[39], edging[40] towards my mother and father who knotted [41]in a desperate embrace. My heart about to jump out of my chest and beads of sweat[42] formed on my forehead. My brother squealed[43] before father could muffle the sound of his voice.

"What that?" yelled a heartless voice from above the floorboards.

My eyes locked[44] with its. It a cold empty stare. Lacking emotion, it pointed to the small fire escape[45]in the shadows[46] of the room. Our escape.
Without a glance we crept like rats to our freedom.

"Just rats" said 2629 as a cold tear landed on a empty pillow.
