that was a nice one!
Chapter 1 part 1:
25.12.2012 – the world
After the announcement was made, people were astounded. The wars suddenly stopped, and country leaders started to unite… But it was too late. The world has already turned into chaos. People were so shocked, and all of them fell into despair. When you walk the streets you can see people running and panicking, some just sitting there staring at the blank, don’t know what to do, some held their heads and was murmuring about the end of the world while shivering, slowly becoming crazy. The air ports were overcrowded with people who want to go home to their homelands. Out of desperation, some even used guns to threaten people just to let him ride the plane. In the cities you can’t hear nothing but shouts, screams and cries. People have been hold-upping stores to get money for their remaining time. Some even started to kidnap women just to rape them. This was going out of control that even the cops can’t do anything, because they themselves were in desperation. They didn’t know what to do… The once happy Christmas now turned into the saddest day of human kind.
25.12.2012 –somewhere around this world
A child was sleeping on a dark alleyway full of garbage. While sleeping, he felt that the city was too noisy. He thought maybe it was because today was Christmas and people are celebrating it, but a sudden noise that approached his sleeping place made his eyes open… His vision was still blurry and he saw 2 shadows entering the alleyway, one of them seems to be forced to. He heard one of the shadows screaming, but the other one was covering its mouth so no one can hear it but him. He was curious what was happening so he tried to clear his eyes. He was surprised by what he saw. It was a guy holding up a girl with a gun while covering her mouth. He thought he should remain hiding so he won’t be involved in the matter. The guy started to whisper, “stop resisting or I will kill you.” The girl still tried to scream and resist. The guy suddenly started to move his hands through the girl’s shirt and whispered “I wanted to experience this before I die, but they said we have 3 weeks left to live so I have no choice but to do this. Too bad you’re the first girl I found when I thought of raping some girl.” The innocent child wondered what was happening but he felt that this is really bad and he should help the girl. But he thought “what can a child like me do? If I go out there I’ll just be shot and die.” He was confused whether to help the girl or not, and while thinking the guy started to make his move again. The guy’s hands started to wonder around the girl’s shirt, and he started to smell the girl’s neck and gave her an evil laugh. His hands started to move towards the lower part of the girl, and she was now screaming hard begging the guy to stop. The child was watching this and he suddenly remembered something… the death of his mother. The scene where her mother was raped and was killed flashed back in his mind. He remembered the night where his father was killed by some thieves, and his mother raped and killed. He survived because she hid him in the closet. Not this triggered him to help the girl. He got the bat beside him and aimed for the guy’s thing. The guy was so concentrated that he didn’t notice the small kid. While playing with the girl, a sudden pain surged from within his body. He screamed and fell on the ground holding his thing. The kid took the girl and they both ran. The guy couldn’t do anything but suffer the pain on the floor…
The boy took the girl to his secret hiding place. He saw the girl still crying because of fear from what happened. He asked “are you ok?” “Yes” The girl answered while crying “It was just so scary. The world’s going to end then I thought I will be raped.” The child wondered and asked, “The world’s going to end? What do you mean?” The girl was surprised that the child didn’t know anything. She explained it to the child and found out that he has been hiding for 3 days so he missed the announcement. He was surprised to find out about the news and he thought the girl was just joking. But this made him realize the word of the guy “we have 3 weeks left”… to be continued
this is mine.. Im not sure if I'm gonna continue it to 2nd part or I'll leave this as my first chapter.. I enjoyed doing this but it really doesn't click to me right... anyways I think its not that good.. and warning: a little malicious content..
someone help meeee save me from boredomeness
Ok Here’s Mine, but be warned … This will be completely different than what u’d expect, not sure whether different is any good though, all the same I thought I’d write it just for the fun of it XD
“I believe there’s an afterlife, a sanctuary somewhere beyond, a place that is just a Utopia as a mortal ‘Aristotle’ told me before” a boy was reading aloud in what looked like a classroom, what was weird about the scenery though, was that all the students looked somehow old and those who looked young, had that look in their eyes, that of a profound wisdom.
“Thank you James” said a tall paled man with fairly light blonde hair, his skin complexion alongside his hair color gave him a rather subtle look.
“That was part of Mannila’s Journals, he wrote this during the first quarter of his sentence , as you all know he is the only known endurerer to have effectively ended his sentence and liberated himself , how he ended his life is a mystery, as his journals dates back to before his liberation.”
Suddenly a bell rang. “Well then, next Class we’ll revisit Mannila’s journal: 1914, back then the non-endurers had their first world war, so it should be interesting”
As everyone started packing their things a conversation broke out
“Ah, so he just killed himself, and left us all to rot here for eternity”
“Shhh, you are not to use foul words, you are sounding like an enlightened, he didn’t kill but rather Liberated himself, beside they say that the enlightened burned it down; Mannila’s last journal entries”
“enlightened, these filthy endurers, they are far away from being enlightened than being dead, I’ve been around now for how long, Damn it I’ve lost count, HA, no need to count though, can easily say since the beginning of time, and I’ve had it, this is not a gift this is a curse”
James made his way quickly, he had heard this talk over and over again, that was all they talked about, anyway he had a much important thing to do he was to meet in secret with Marianne. Every week they met in secret, If anyone would find out, they would be casted out both of them.It was forbidden, an unspeakable taboo, that an enlightened and a en-shadowed to meet, it’s true they were both original endurers in other words immortals, yet an enlightened lived to serve, to sustain life on the other hand an enshadowed lived to find a way to end what they thought was an eternal service. At the beginning of time there were only endurers and non-endurers(humans), Endurers maintained and sustained life and aided the non-endurers , but then there was a riot, some endurers were not pleased they were angry and protested. And from that point on there were 2 clans: The enlightened and enshadowed.
As he stood looking past the trees “will she be here ???” he thought and slowly an earlier talk he had, played through his head.
“Try to cheer up James, they say it’s all coming to end within 3 weeks, the non-endurers announced it, Ha, and it’s a wreck outside for the enlightened” An older man said
“Don’t Give James false hopes, we’ve been around for quite a long time, I don’t believe it, this is too easy.”
“You have to believe, the enlightened do, they are even blaming us, they say it’s our fault the world is coming to an end, some sort of retribution for us not doing what we are supposed to do”
He suddenly flipped out of it, he heard someone coming, it was Marianne.
James smiled “I thought you wouldn’t come”
Marianne “Don’t’ be silly James, why wouldn’t I come, It’s not like the world is ending in 3 weeks and it’s a mess out there ” and her mouth twitched to a little distant smile
James “How is it like out there??”
Marianne “You haven’t seen it for your own eyes yet???” and he shook his head
“well, it’s a mess no it’s rather a catastrophe, and there’s just too much happening and so little of us, they’ve gone mad, if they keep going like that there won’t be a world to end when hades2 fall ”
Marianne “That’s what they call it” and she looked at him suspiciously “You must know that least surely”
James “No I don’t, I haven’t been out, I’m stuck here and all they do is party over on my side, they don’t even care about the details”
Marianne “Partying huh?? So there’s still someone on this planet who’s having fun! Well, it’s not pretty at my side, they are agitated and I don’t think they are going to calm down”
James “what do u mean??”
Marianne “well, they say it’s all.. Well the enshadowed fault” and she looked away.
James “And you believe that??” incredulously
Marianne “well, do u have another explanation” inquiringly
James was shocked “Yes, the world doesn’t revolve around us, maybe…Maybe it’s a meteor as they say, the fact that you would just say that, I can’t believe you Marianne”
Marianne just remained silent with a frown on her face, James could think of to say to her.
“Fine, as u like” he said angrily and left while Marianne kept sitting there for a moment till she heard a scream ringing through her head and then vanished into thin air.
EDITED (For the paragraphs sake XD )
As Date Masumme *heart* would Say Let's Have a Party!!!
This is long.. sorry..
23.12.2012 – Late afternoon
“Despite the sudden announcement of ‘Hades the second” from NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and US Secretary Condoleezza Rice asks the public not to panic....”
“So, they finally announced it, huh?” a spiky-styled-and-dyed hair young man remarked in a seemingly uncaring tone, over the soft volume of the TV, which is currently showing the news reporting by a US anchorwoman.
“It is about time,” a man with stubbed chin replied, frowning deep into his dark coffee.
“Unfortunately, that is the thing that we are lacking now,” a female replied from her position against the dirty white wall. She was leaning against the shadows, such that a stranger in this dimly-lit room will probably not notice her at first glance.
“At least they are willing to believe in our words now; it is time we move on.”
“Move on? Take a look, Prof! It is barely three weeks, and we have to complete such a feat in that deadline?” Josh turned in his lazed position from the couch and look at the professor.
“We knew it would be hard from the start... be glad we have three weeks to accomplish this ‘feat’ of yours, not to mention that we have long began preparations.”
“Three weeks is still too little, preparations or not,” Josh argued, “Do you have any idea how many people there are in this world? 6,679,493,900 people. This is impossible!”
“Miracles are not made with impossibilities, Josh.” The woman turned to the stubbed man, “you are going to meet with the secretary?”
“Ah… I hope the discussion will be a success…” he muttered.
“It will be…we have worked hard all these years.”
“Well, god knows that I am a crude man... not someone like your father… he’s eloquent…”
The female smiled sadly and gently at him at the dour man as she walked over to give him a kiss at the cheeks. “I’ll be over at the NASA. You will need me there, right?”
“Ah, thanks, Tri,” Prof breathed out.
“Welcome. Take care, Josh,” she gave a small wave. At the doorway, Trina put on her spectacles before she stepped out of the place.
Despite her words, Trina did not leave for NASA immediately. Instead, she headed in the opposite direction, where a great mansion stood in silence. Trina got out of her convertible and went straight into the house.
In the mansion, in a sun-bathed room with French top-down windows, a little boy sat before the grand piano, moving in rhythm to the sound of the keys he pressed firmly. Trina stepped into the room silently, unwilling to disturb the boy in his rhapsody. Yet, the heaviness of the issues in her mind refuses to allow her to truly appreciate the music revolving around her ears. Finally, unable to control herself anymore, Trina stepped forward and hugged him tightly. The boy stopped and turned around to face her, smiling upon seeing his sister, "Trina!"
"Tyle," she replied, smiling gently at her little brother, "this tune is nice...."
Tyle nodded, and with enthusiasm, blurted out, "it is called Separation! It is a whole new tune, and they are going to use it in the new movie!"
Trina doubted the new movie is going to be aired, her flow of thoughts returning to the cursed meteor. "I'm going to be late home... perhaps not even back tonight. Remind Lyndie to lock all windows and doors before you sleep.” Trina looked face to face with Tyle and was somewhat assured when the boy nodded seriously. She then patted the boy on the head, claiming that he is the best little brother ever in this world before leaving again in her convertible, this time heading for NASA.
24.12.2012 – Breaking dawn
NASA, unlike the rumoured-filled world outside of its compound, was a place locked in the absence of loud noises, even in times of such tensed situation. Perhaps, it is more adequate to say that it is precisely because of this sudden realisation of what is about to come that has cause a spread of silence in this normally discussion-filled facility. It was in this situation in which Trina left the airport and entered the compound, feeling the tension in each step she took.
Dressed in white rolled-up-sleeves business shirt tucked into light brown pants, Trina was a picture of seriousness as she moved about the compound of NASA. Alone and silent, she strolled the corridors of the various labs, noting that the people who were normally enthusiasm in their work were obviously lacking in spirit. Some were not even doing anything; simply sitting around in their tall lab chairs, staring into space. This place is seriously going down in mood, Trina thought.having ascended 5 levels to reach the fifth astronomy research lab of NASA. “Burlton!” a voice halted her as she entered the room. Trina kept her surprise as her eyes found the unknown caller. Gloria Hayes. One of the important people of NASA. She was not about to be taken aback by the fiercest of lions after the mental warning she had prepared herself for before entering the room. This is the important day. The timing has to be right. The situation has to be right. Every thing has to be right today. Josh had already been found out by CERN, his narrow escape yesterday marking an end to his role in the prestigious science facility. Everything now lies on her shoulders, whether or not she can successfully do what was required, Hayes or no Hayes.
24.12.2012 – Early morning
“Madm,” Trina greeted.
Gloria answered with a brief smile that clearly did not reach her heart. “Burlton, I heard that you were the one that calculated out the day in which the meteor would fall.”
“Indeed, Madm” Trina thought back to those nights she had spent working with Prof and the others to study the movement of Hades 2.
“I was just wondering if you would … share with us…. Your expertise,” she added as Trina remained silent after her words.
“It is not really an expertise, Madm,”
“Do not play humble with me, Bulton,” her voice was hard, with an edge. Game over – time for the truth, or so it said.
“You not believe me?”
“You ever heard of the Mayas? No? Oh, I see… you have heard. You do know then, that they predicted the coming of the white men in South America… and the end of the world.” Gloria Hayes continued, seeing the silence Trina continued to keep, “do you not find it … coincidental… the dates?”
Hayes’ eyes were fully on Trina now, scrutinizing her face intensely. Trina let her eyes meet those of Hayes’. “There are such things as coindental… such as you, Madm, being so interested in history and finding the connection to today. Perhaps, the Mayas are really that amazing, that they truly can predict the end of the world, or so some says. But what I said hold true. Such is the reason why NASA announced to the world with regards to Hades 2.”
“That was an obvious mistake by Professor Gullent and Mr Hoyet. This meteor might change its routine at the critical point. You know that as a scientist in that area of expertise.”
“Then perhaps I can tell you that as a scientist in that area of expertise, Hades 2 has been in motion for too long to change its route.”
“You made a mistake – that meteor did not made the turns that was predicted by this lab!” with a flush of anger, she threw the papers onto the table besides her, not caring the least when some of them fluttered to the floor. Trina recognised them as the route map that they had worked out in this very lab.
“At that point in time, if you were to come to me and said the same words, I would agree. There is a possibility. But now? Look at the map yourself, Madm – these are old records, made two weeks ago. Do you have any idea how much difference two weeks can be in determining if a route made by a meteor is fixed or not? Please do not insult this lab, Madm!”
“Insult-” Hayes’ screech of anger would be unbearable, if not for the intervention of another.
“That would be enough, Gloria,” the deep masculine voice was unmistakable.
“A good day to you too, Gloria. I see you are well.”
“Why – why would you be here, Mr Hoyet?”
“For the same reason as you, and for a different reason as you. I’m here to talk to Miss Bulton here, but not to argue with her, but to learn more from her.” With a turn of his head, his attention was transferred from Hayes to Trina. “Miss Bulton. If I were to trust in your words, and those of this lab... Say, just say, Hades 2 will land on Earth, and that it will land in 3 weeks time. What can we do?”
“Prepare to escape Earth. Or burry ourselves in the very soil of this land.”
“… care to elaborate?”
“We can either escape to the satellites or rockets that will launch from Earth and stay there, or hide ourselves in secured facilities underground.”
. . . . .
“The space or the underground is our safest options, Sir.”
“You sure of this, Duirn?” the secretary rubbed his chin thoughtfully as he considered what Duirn had told him so far.
“I would not dare to come here and lie, Sir. This is an issue of utmost importance, as I have insisted long ago.”
“Not “sir”… we have been friends long enough… “Shian-san” will be enough. You were working along side Bulton, I remember… how is he?”
“He died peacefully, Sir”
“… I am sorry. The methods you told me of… they are good… but how are we to do it in such a short time?”
“There are various research facilities in Japan which are currently into space studies, Sir… my lab has been studying it for a long time as well. There would be enough, I assure you. As for the underground facilities, Hades 2 is expected to hit in Russia, and affect the surrounding areas. We could use the current underground facilities that are strong enough in areas far away from Russia or earthquake-prone areas. ” Seeing the thoughtful look on Shian’s eyes, Duirn knew that he was on the way to success. Relief slashed down on him as he continued to convince Shian, feeling lucky that he was visiting this area at this time, and had contacted him to arrange a meeting. This is his only chance at saving lives… to atone for those that he had taken. Duirn felt more relaxed as he outlined the details one by one to the Secretary-General of Japan.
It took some time, but when they are done, 2 hours has passed. The secretary-general was to make his way to a meeting with a foreign minister. Thus ended their meeting, swiftly and hastily. Duirn watched as Shian left the room, accompanied by his secretary and bodyguards.
Will not be approving any buddy request unless you talk to me.
