2098: It’s the ninth month of the year.

Everything is ruins and rocky mountains. I haven’t heard a bird - I don’t know; but I can just imagine. To see one flying over my head, flying against the green, gloppy sky.

Rocks crack under my feet, that might once have been something beautiful and meaningful; but there is nothing to really see in this featureless place, and whatever monuments that are left is black and withering away. I hold my gun handle tighter than usual. The oaken grip, cold in my hand, is a comfort.

Just about the only comfort I have left.

I remember a planet once green and blooming, constantly giving birth and repeating its unique process. The animals that used to live on this orb we're one with the circle of life, but we separated ourselves from this circle. Instead we gave nothing back. We sucked the life out of her slowly and tookaway something far more precious than our machines, skyscrapers, weapons and beautiful monuments.

We showed no appreciation to what she gave us, instead we acted selfish. Nobody is perfect that's true but we we're as far away from perfect as possible. Not much is left of that we built in over prime time, should we blame our lack of perfection for this? There's nothing to blame but ourselves... We tried stopping diseases and viruses from killing us, but we never thought of ourselves as a virus never even bothered to find a cure.

We looked upon ourselves as intelligent, but our mask faded and our selfishness showed. That was the past for sure it's rather evident today.

In the very moment I record this, the polluted sky look like images reminiscent of the awestruck impressions on the survivors faces.

It didn't use to be like this. I remember being young and things we're different. I don't remember anything specific, but I remember feeling – I remember feeling happy and that I used to smile. One day (not that I remember when) everything changed. That day I remember waking up on the floor, hearing screams but I don't know whose it was.

There was a bright outside the window that was just starting to dim. I got up off the floor and stepped over to the window. The light still continuing to dim as I pushed the blind aside. It was just a blob of white light climbing out of the ground, it soon took shape. I still have these images burned into my memories. The white blob-like cloud was lifting upward into the sky and then took a general outline of a mushroom.

I just kept looking at the dimming white blob in the distance, frozen to my place. I didn’t know what it was, or what was going on, but I knew that something was very out of the ordinary. I just kept on watching I didn’t have much of a choice, my body wouldn’t let me move.

Suddenly, I felt how my feet lifted from the floor, all of a sudden. I was in my father's arms being carried. He brought me downstairs into our basement, where laid me down on the cold concrete floor. I remember that just before my father left, he looked me straight into the eyes and said, “Stay here, Alec! The rain is coming!” I didn't really catch what he meant back then, but today... I do all to well.

My father never told me anything about what happened that day but I found something that did.
