Summary
Harry and Michel live in the basement of a luxury apartment block, guarding the inhabitants. No-one goes outside. The world might be at war - it might even have been plunged into nuclear winter. No-one knows. All Harry and Michel know is that if they are vigilant, 'the Organization' will reward them: promotion to an elite cadre of security officers remains their shining goal. But what if there were no-one left to guard? And if the promised relief shift arrives, how will they fit in to Michel and Harry's studied routine of boredom and paranoia?
Summary
Security guards Harry and Michel guard a luxury apartment block from the outside post-apocalyptic world, but when all of the residents suddenly leave except for one man, the two speculate on the state of the outside world as they make their rounds
