Falling Star

Five years before, we left an Earth full with life. An Earth on the precipice of exploring the universe.

We returned to dead cities, scorched continents, and toxic clouds roiling across deserts that were once oceans. What became of our world, we don’t know.

All we can do is watch in horror as that dead yellow orb grows larger on our screens everyday. There is no stopping, there is nowhere else to go, we are locked in.

Headed home.

We’re a falling star, a streak of light across the sky with no one to look at it. Or wish upon it.
