(It cant be worse than "Delete word and smack your head against a wall, until you die) So, I hope you can enjoy this really short story.
The story of the grand duchy of Luxembourg
[align=left]Relatively small and last of the grand duchies in Europe. As one of the wealthiest countries in the world it offered protection and a fine live for half a million.
[align=left]Although only half of its populations were actual citizens, there have never been any ongoing conflicts.
[align=left]The first reports of a new, cruel infection were handled like always. They were ignored, and why shouldn´t they ? In the heart of Europe, seated between France, Germany and Belgium, it was safe, it has always been safe since the great war, and what was one more infection ? The word was looking at the ongoing Ebola-infection in western Africa which was far away.
[align=left]Same was going on with Chernarus. Even less people knew it, for the Luxembourgers it was as far away as the main Ebola outbreak.
[align=left]This “new” infection gained media-attention in Luxembourg when Russia and Takistan shut down the borders. But trying to stop this infection didn´t work.
[align=left]During this time some soldiers in Luxembourg started to think about conspiracy theories. While having only a strength of 1000 soldiers, the army became the first origin of curious and wild thesis's.
[align=left]“This infection was evolved on purpose to wipe out unwanted human life across the world and only the soldiers could stop this ongoing plan of the evil sovereigns. So they would have to be the first ones to die.” Ideas like this were a breeding ground for public riots, and even the moderate Luxembourgers started feeling unsafe and thought about a self defense.
[align=left]Soon after this, people started to ask questions. Was it an accident ? That this new, deadly infection appeared only month after the mentioned Ebola outbreak ? And why were the symptoms so similar ? All in all, these theories met only little international attention, while in the grand duchy itself, fear spread out and was nearly as danger as the infection itself.
[align=left]To control the public fear, grand duke of Luxembourg took the chance and gave a public statement.
[align=left]“Neither was Luxembourg in danger, nor would it be in the future”. People decided to take the word for it and calmed down a little bit. They thought they would be out of danger.
[align=left]During this persistent mood of relief, the first infected emerged in eastern Germany only month later. And as always, it spread out with an incredible speed, the highly-populated Germany worked out as an intersection for this merciless carrier if death. Sharing around 140 kilometer of border, it was only a question of time, and as feared, the infection quickly reached for Luxembourg.
[align=left]His royal highness, grand duke of Luxembourg declared a state of emergency as many before him, but the infection cut through the country like the death´s scythe, The capital fell within the first 72 hours since the first case of the infection, this was the last time the sovereign was seen, some say a plane flew off during the capitals struggle, carrying the duke. Few fled to the northern Ardennes, some say that there would be safe zones.
[align=left]Some were telling that the grand duchy could be rebuild.
[align=left]Some were just wondering whether it is just a nightmare or not.. But only the future can divide the liar from the ones telling the truth.
Just one thing is surely known. Luxembourg was only one more victim on the countless list.
