— Hello son, I hope you are well and alive to see this video left by me; yes, I went up here, to the scapeship, to the new world, and what's here... I discovered something, someone... But you don't need to know... You just need to know something: we love you , me and your mother, more than anything! So I have something to ask of you: no matter what happens, your worries or your wants, you can't—no way—come up here! I repeat to you son: stay away from here!
For the millionth time I completed this video, the video I watched every day since I was a child... My father said I shouldn't go there, to the big spaceship that is located in the skies of our Planet in ruins, the great: New World, the new Planet. Where all humanity went after a great Nuclear War that affected the entire Planet.
Not going up to the place that it is my dream to go up. The only thing I know is that my father disappeared with my mother 16 years ago after going up to the scapeship, and somehow uploaded this video while he was up there, and that's the only thing I know. Is there anyone up there? Who's there? Is there really a new humanity? Questions, theories and more questions... But nothing leads me to a definitive answer. There's only one way to find out about all this: by going up there! And since I was little I have wanted this, since my grandfather showed me this video for the first time... The greatest mystery of all modern humanity, I will solve it, and find you: father and mother... My friends Flora and Perseus will help me in this dream of mine, Flora has very good sword skills and is very smart, Perseus is the great knight of the group, strong, tall and quite dumb at times... And I, I'm on the side of science , since I was a child I built robots left in the junkyard by humans before the war. And this will be the triumph for that...
THE WORLD ABOVE
Hello, my name is Michael, I am 16 years old and my dream? You can imagine by now... I'm a scientist, although I can't say that to anyone. Going up to that spaceship, I want that more than anything. My dad told me in that video to stay away from that place, but I don't want to be cattle here, I want to know where they are and who's there. I've seen this video more than enough to make my own decisions — I'm going up there, and nothing's going to stop me from it...
As I said, I have two great friends with the same dream as me, and we will, together, go up there. Flora, the most amazing girl ever, and Perseus my best friend, they are the only people who don't think my robots are bad. The people who are left don't like new scientists, and those who have the desire to rise, because they were the ones who left us here when they took to the skies. But Me, Flora and Perseus have made a promise ever since: we will be together until the end, and nothing will tear us apart! Let's go up to the spaceship, and make our dreams come true!
Now with my 16 years old I need to go, unfortunately, to school, I don't like it very much because they seem to lie about the humanity that is there, what if they aren't evil as they say? They speak ill of the military too, who have gone to a much bigger dome than this one to the east, where the radiation is a little higher, but with a lot more protection. Yes, domes, we live in domes to protect ourselves from radiation and animals that have mutated, and are now more offensive. We live on crops and artificial foods made by the scientists left over. And it's even weird... Why don't they want me to be a scientist? Or that no one else is? Because? But well, my plan is to one day go to the entrance of the "To go up", yes, I named it that, there is the place used to go up to the spaceship, and it has been disabled since when they last climbed there 16 years ago back. The remaining scientists said there is no way to fix it, but I believe it to be a lie, I will fix it and climb up to it anyway.
That was me, muttering and thinking to myself every single day, my mind is my best friend, but while I was thinking and dreaming out loud, a scream starts to rise in my ear:
— Michael — Michael! — Michael!!!!
I was startled, fell out of my chair but quickly recovered.
— What a scare, do you want to kill me from the heart? says Michael in a dark voice.
"Again you staring off into space while you're late, you were watching the video again, weren't you?"
"Sorry, thanks for waking me up.
— You're welcome, hehe.
This is Flora, she always reminds me not to be late.
- Even I who am stupid don't complain about school, hahaha.
This is Perseus, he looks bigger since yesterday...
- Sorry guys, I was thinking to myself...
- Well, we have to go to the School because the teacher is already calling us - Flora said.
"To school... another day of lies and fallacies, I'll only go because my friends want to go... Their parents want them to go to school, I don't think so. It must be because I don't have parents, hahaha . -That wasn't a good joke.-"
Arriving at School...
- Hello students, today we are going to talk about Nikola Tesla... -Said the teacher....
"Some time passed, and after the class ended we went to the place we always stayed: in the junkyard."
— Until the story of this Nikola Tesla was good, he was a great human before the chaos happened, little did he know... - Flora said.
— He discovered energy, very cool... But I still prefer Neymar. - Completed Perseus.
— Did you like his story too, Michael?'
— I've read about him, isn't it amazing? How much curiosity and discovery took humanity ancient times? I want to be like him, no, like all of them, and climb up to the biggest mystery of all and find out what's there... So how about we go to the edge and see the big spaceship again?
— But again? - Flora said.
— I like to go there too Michael!!!
The edge is the closest place to the dome to the north of our town of 120. They don't like it when we go there, so we always go in hiding.
When we got there, we saw the spaceship where the new humanity is.
Seeing that landscape again is like the first time, we see a world outside the dome all destroyed and rotten, while above us there is a great spaceship, and there is the greatest mystery of our current humanity.
- It's... amazing.
— You say that every time we're here, hahaha. - Flora said, Perseus agrees.
— What's there? Why doesn't my father want me to go there? What is the mystery they don't want anyone to find out? When I turn 18, I'll leave there... Activate the "riser" and see the new humanity...
Flora and Perseus smiled at me as they wanted the same thing, Flora to see her father, who also went up there; and Perseus to fulfill the wish of his grandfather, who died of cancer and his dream was to go up to the spaceship. Perseus has the same dream, Flora and I do too... But we were too young... As the sound resounds to the location of the "Upper", a symbol appears, in the shape of an eye in a circle... The future is waiting for us. And he, it won't be easy.
The dream of the new era starts today. My name is Michael, and along with Flora and Perseus I was going to rise to the new humanity, and find that what I expected...
