It was not that long ago when a mothership crashed in the veins of the earth. The people never expected it. It was a sudden turn of events when once their generation thought that after they walked out of a tragedy road called life, the suffering would be over. But then, who would have guessed that it was only the beginning of the thick book called havoc. A destruction landed upon their peaceful surface. It was the day where a normal boy, one innocent mind, witnessed how his home was demolished in the hands of aliens who hold such power over technology.

It was what they call a bright and glorious day in the year of 2100, a family of six with the mother and the father, along with their grandparents, and the siblings- boy and his elder brother. They were out together going after a vacation at their favorite beach, in Florida.

”Mom, Bennys running over the wet floor again. ” The elder brother said, calling his mothers attention.

The little boy was splashing his pee on the floor with his new bought blue shoes again just when his mother had told him to stay put. The father came rushing into the scene and made a good laugh of his adorable son. He carried him using both of his hands and brought him to the bathroom.

”What are you doing little fella when you
e supposed to get ready? You
e going to pester your mom at this point. ” His father changed his clothes and made him wear another pack of shoes.

”Tyron, hurry up! Theres going to be a lot of people there and we are left with nothing. Grandma and Grandpa! Lets go! ” The mother exclaimed.

They all went inside the car, the little son was placed in the middle of the family and they began to proceed upon their journey to the beach. As expected, there were a lot of people enjoying the sunny day. The sea was like a rippling blanket of brochure-blue. Squabbling seagulls flew overhead. Gannets were dive-bombing the stretched surface of the sea far out from shore. The horizon was edged with a silver tint and a cormorant was flying into that place where sun and water meet. The beachgoers covered the golden grains of the sand, and you could tell just by how many heads were over to visit this wonderful beach.

The boy was astonished, his brother held his hand as they ran over to the water. The parents warned them to not get too far ahead, the eldest brother nodded as he widely grinned.

”Don you think Benny is a bit clever for his own age? ” The mother sighed.

The father softly brushed his wifes hair strands. ”Why do you think so? ”

”Well, you see. Yesterday, he was playing with your materials at the storage and he was able to operate the UI of your device. Technically, the endless buttons of your operations were managed by a boy at that age. You should have seen my face when I rushed to get him. ” She shook her head reminiscing about what had happened.

”He is a clever boy, I think. ”

They continued to have their conversations, when the Grandma had decided to go over to her grandsons. She enjoyed looking after them while the parents were busy setting up their tent. But then, as they went through their day. A grey sky hovered above them, one child from another family was the first to discover what was the cause of the discoloration. His eyes widened, barely even able to move as he stopped from licking his ice cream. And there, the family heard shouts.

The little boy stared above and his ingenious mind was amazed, a massive aircraft covered the sunlight, a grey-like metal was seen as it shivered an eerie feel to the mortals eyes. A circle embodiment mortified with its vessel spurt out. Like telepathy, it suddenly appeared on top of the earth. Emerge was a huge tube, wiggling like a worm it sipped people in and that where everyone thought that it could be the end of the world.

The father ran over to his sons and carried them both, the ship started landing in inferno bombs and destroying the surface. In an instant, the place they were feasting over was already filled with thick smoke and savage fire. The trees burned like flakes, numerous people were executed along the fire, and the beach was filled with nothing but oils.

But, as they attempted to escape using their car, the roof was pulled open and the huge tube sipped the sons out. The mother screamed as loud as she could, with her eyes teary, as her hand extended throughout. The boy had no idea that it was the last time that he could ever see his mother. The last time that he could take a glimpse of the world he was from. And the last that he could ever live the life he deserved.

AGAMEMNON 3000.

He woke up at the beeping noises of the TL 9 Grav Vehicle. A metallic automobile incorporated with blasting blue flames making it float around the surface. Driven by the Agametes, a foreign denizen of this planet. He settled down however he was brushed off immediately by an unfortunate fate. His head bumped into the board that was on top of him.

He groaned and scratched his head. ”I was woken up by these pesky flying insects just to bump my head? Great! ”

After his head had calmed down he took a glance at his timepiece device, wrapped around his wrist, clicked a couple of buttons to find out that it was time for him to progress out and work.

The mans feet brought him to the wide space of his obscure abode, he opened the storage generated to freeze goods and meals. His hands twisted the circular padlock with letters, he and the inhabitants only knew. A signature noise came out of the storage, as smokes escaped it, when it was widely opened. His face that was expressionless marked disappointment with irritation when he saw that he no longer had anything with him. No food to feed his digestion. It was empty.

He took a deep breath and heaved a sigh. The man decided to just close it and looked for something to at least cover the infuriating hunger boiling inside his stomach. Last night was a nightmare itself, his body was beaten to a pulp right after he overwork himself. There was no room for rest, if a single finger has formed a mass of peace, a punishment is brought upon him. The least he could do right now is burden the people who know him.

While walking around, he spotted a bottle of water and decided to drink a whole chunk of it. He also picked up the little figurine of a glass globe, inside was the living metropolis above him, it was a decor made to showcase the look of the city he is in.

”This is complicated to fix, some glasses are broken, and the mechanism right under it is… ” He raised the figurine and peaked the battery below. ”Is missing… So now what? ”

He took a moment to think of it. As he reminisced the look on Aries face, the little girl who was living right in the under as well, she was a little friend of his, her shimmering eyes, her small lips, and her hands intertwining as she pleaded with him to fix it for her.

”Pretty please, Kai! Look at it! Bunny Freddy likes it and even mother said so! Pretty please ! Pretty please! ”

”Alright! I will! I will! ”

Her eyes widened and shone as if there were glitters lying inside. ”You will? Yay! ”

Remembering about it made him flinch as he sighs in relief, he can never say no to that girl, she was like a little sibling to him. After a while of deeply diving in his thoughts, his stomach suddenly grumbled.

”You don say- that Ill be eating weeds? This home can be real. ” He complained after drinking a bottle of water as he gently placed the figurine back on the table and harshly slumped the bottle right beside it.

But, what choice does he have? Theres nothing in this house but plain material waste. So, he set course to dress himself up and rode inside the lift. It was an elevator made to bring him up on the surface. He stared at the monitor showing how many more floors he has to surpass before arriving on the land. Without further notice, the elevator opened up and the bright surface flashed through his eyes.

”You
e late again, Kaidan. ” A womans voice was heard.

When he already had a good sight of the surroundings, he realized that it was actually just Idris. Idris is one of the few normal inhabitants on this planet. She has been his comrade ever since they were in their young years, they have been through a lot as they witnessed how this world evolved by their own hands. They were working like slaves for this Agametes, yet they earn close to noting while their bodies suffered under the consequences.

”Late. I wish I never have to worry about that. Are you all treating this now as a normality? ” He walked past them with his hands tucked to his side.

Idris shook her head. ”Normality? Isn this how it truly is? What are you spouting on early in the day? ”

He took a short glance at her and snubbed right after, noticing that beside her, standing a foot taller, was Timon. He was also a mere human yet somehow, they never get along.

”Hes just all stuck up on the fairytales. ” Timon muttered.

He looked at him, as if throwing daggers with his stare. ”Speaking like that, you
e turning out to be one of these Agametes. I doubt you even know where you truly came from. Working like an animal, is that who you think we are? An animal? ” He stopped to face him, brows furrowed.

”Huh? Then, what are we supposed to do if not for that? Our generation has come to realize that this is our fate. The concepts of serving and evolving within this very hold is our value. What animal are you describing our civilization? You
e just delusional thinking we came one peaceful and full of freedom world just like how your old folks lied to you about! ” He shouted at his face, veins bulging around his forehead, as he pointed at him.

His patience was knocked off and he finally let go of it, grabbing him by the collar, and closing the distance between them.

”Don you dare speak like that about my grandmother! You know nothing about whats the truth and whats not! You
e nothing but fraud to your own kind! ” He responded, meeting Timons eyes.

He was already covered by his own emotions this morning and this guy just had to piled up more baggage on his back. Idris forcibly meddled with their fight, inserting herself in the middle, trying to go against them.
