The End of the World

Post by munsi » Sat Oct 02, 2010 3:02 pm

The world ended before its inhabitants even knew it was ending.

The Comet knocked the moon out of orbit, and Tsunamis smashed the coasts as tides went haywire. When lunar wreckage struck central Europe, it left a miles-wide crater, sending up enough dust to begin an ice age.

If anyone survived, they’d soon be frozen.

Thus, the world ended. Not a whisper, but a cry of incomprehension cut short by the mightiest bang…

…I’d never been to Earth, my parents emigrated before I was born. But as I watched coverage on holovid, I couldn’t help feel sadness for the homeworld.

nothing quite like a lost survivor, seperated forever from the world as they know it....
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
