A near future, where humans have been defeated by the viral parasites named Gastrea. They have been exiled into a small territory and live in despair, side-by-side in terror., when they said side-by-side, what did they mean? and when they started a new paragraph after the ., they started with They, who are They? The humans or the Gastrea?

1 Answer 1


If the humans have been defeated then it is they who have been exiled not the Gastrea. The humans are confined close together in the small territory.


  1. (of two or more people or things) close together and facing the same way. "on we jogged, side by side, for a mile" synonyms: alongside (each other), beside each other, abreast, level, shoulder to shoulder, cheek by jowl, together, close together https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=side-by-side+definition
