I recently came across a prompt put out by Liam J Cross Writing and Editing:
A rocket ship to outer space. A mission to save the world. Or so they thought…
It was way too intriguing NOT to write a story for this!
The Extinction Event
He watched as the white smoke trailed behind the first rocket as it zoomed up towards space. For months, it was advertised, preached, and listed as “man’s greatest hope for survival,” but he knew the truth.
By agreeing to send “them” any and all offspring for research and food, they basically secured mankind’s doom. It was only a matter of time before the public found out, and what would happen then?
Again, he knew.
Chaos. Total anarchy. And then what would “they” do?
No matter what, annihilation was certain for them all.
