I still remember back then that I was someone different from who I am today ... that
implies that the story that I am beginning to tell you is one of those
stories where a person dies and is born again in a world completely
different from yours, but make no mistake, it's not that typical story where a boy
dies and is reborn in a new world, this is a little, something different.
Well so you can begin to understand it you should start from the
I started that it was actually the end.
Isaac Derian, that used to be my name. Although in school time I was a great
character with perfect qualifications, when leaving to the real world I crashed with
that none of that serbia if you did not have what was needed and that were the guts to spend on your peers and hypocrisy to follow them smiling.
Or at least that's how I see the world ...
Anyway, in the end I ended up as a salaried employee who worked for wages
temporarily and then in other seasons to have nothing better to do
spend the little I earned while playing video games without seeing the outside world.
I know many would think that I deserved such a fate and maybe they are right, but
let me tell you that I was not the only one to suffer the consequences of my own
As it is well known the complete humanity and without exceptions are creatures that
they only know how to give arguments for their own benefit and no matter what
they themselves ... well I will not go into many details of that, humanity includes me and I am not the exception either.
The important thing is that as consequences of human activity the planet went to an unprecedented decline, until life in it was no longer a possibility.
Governments implemented many programs and policies to try
recover the planet, but apparently it was already too late and after the
vegetation and the remnant of animals not yet extinct, which followed
obviously, it was the humans.
In the end there were only a few hundred, but thanks to a program of the Nasa
and the American North Government hope was not lost. Now everybody
the survivors would be put on a large ship that would be taken through space in search of a new planet.
Since the survivors were few, that reality was not seen in which only the
important people could occupy a place in the "ark of salvation" all
they would be entitled to a quota ...
Well I have my own conjecture about that: If there were only important people on the ship, they would not have lackeys to take care of heavy labor.
The day of departure arrived and I was ready to enter the ship when I noticed something that
I would change things for myself
That morning I wanted to take a final tour of the old house that I had seen
to grow up and had sheltered me in the most difficult times, to go out to my backyard
For the last time I found it, a new sprout of watermelon ... I could not believe it,
I was trying something sensational, this sure would change everything for humanity,
However, when I wanted to give notice to the rest, they treated me as foolish and
They did not want to believe me ... I came to hate them for that in such a short period of time
weather. His plans to leave did not decline, however, and I could not just leave
leaving that little bud at the mercy of this arid world, so take the
the most difficult decision of my life; while the rest of humanity left for space
In search of new horizons I stayed in the dying land to protect what could be the last plant in the world.
At first, things were complicated ... while I was busy with things
as fertilizers, water and other necessary implements, I should also look
the remains of whatever I could eat to keep me energized
while the small plant began to produce its fruits.
It was also faced with this having to deal with climatic factors ... what
The only positive of the present earth is that there were no plagues that could devastate the little plant.
First it was days, seeing him throw his first leaves, then weeks watching
how it strengthened its roots and stems.
During that time I had to survive by feeding on the remains of
non-perishable products that I found in the abandoned cities of
around, but after a few months, I was able to start adding some fruit to my diet.
More months passed, then years and little by little while the plant
it grew and became stronger I grew older and it made me weak, until finally
The day of my death arrived, or at least that was what I expected.
That day I was in my bed dying. I felt at peace with myself
but he still regretted not being able to see that the plant was completely surrounded by a beautiful orchard and a large forest.
Well it is possible that a single person even if he lived hundreds of years never
I would have seen that in this devastated world.
-isaac ... isaac
I could swear someone has called me ... it must be crazy, a long time ago
that there are no more people on earth. I'm the only one left. And although very
far would someone have been left, although there is the remote possibility that in some way I would have gotten here, as that someone would know my name?
-isaac !!!! -
What the hell? The loud scream right in my ear has completely removed the
lethargic dream of death. I can suddenly find myself with a
young girl standing right next to me, although I can not perceive her person completely, it is as if my eyes were cloudy.
-can I know what is offered to you, impertinent little girl? -
-mu ... who do you think you call impertinent little girl? old decrepit! -
His screams are annoying, so I decide to stop with that immediately and continue to where this strange situation takes us.
-Well, okay ... sorry for that ... now, I can know who you are and what is it
-ah it's true! - Says shaking a little what seems to be a mantle that takes over and resumes with a charismatic -my name is tetragramaton, although lately some tell me only tetra. I have been watching you all this time, as you sacrificed your own welfare in a disinterested way to protect this innocent soul, for that reason I will grant you the divine favor granting you to live so that you can continue with your work.
That's a bit ... hard to swallow, it's more I could even bet that I'm
having delusions prior to death.
-It's not delusions, I'm actually here and you're there!
He says pointing to where I was lying before. Instinctively I turn my face to see and I can see my inert body in that place.
-what the hell?-
-Keep your mouth, young man, you're in front of a goddess! -
As he spoke these last words his voice sounded as if he had a
army of warriors, making me completely shrink from panic. Whether it's real or not, I think it's best not to make him angry.
-then you say that you will allow me to live? How is that supposed to be possible
When I'm already there dead? -
-Well, that's simple, I've made your soul transcend matter. So you can
live in a spiritual way and go around the world easily while you take care of
the plant ... in this way your idea of planting a garden and a forest will be easier
to execute .... In addition you will have all the time in the world! What do you say I'm a great goddess! -
I think about the situation for a moment ... I observe my body lying there and how
right now I feel completely oblivious to him. It's like my mind is part
of the same air that previously breathed.
This does not seem to be a dream or a delirium, it feels quite real, it also gives me the feeling that it will be quite useful.
-Yes, you are a great goddess, tetra! -
