Prompt: She had seen thousands of sunrises, but this one was different.
She had seen thousands of sunrises, but this one was different. Playan was looking out of our shared bedroom window admiring the suns rising, oh yes, not a typo. She had seen thousands of sunrises, but this one was different. Unbeknown to Playan she had been drugged, put in a time capsule and teleported 10,000,000 light years to a newly discovered planet. I went with her, well I am her husband. Its not so much that she wasn’t given a choice, she wanted to go, but had no faith in the technology. The reality was that we both had no choice, as had the thousands that had gone before us. The advance party, who by virtue of their combined knowledge had established a viable colony on planet H-1002090, recently renamed planet ‘HOPE’. It now goes without saying that the time travel technology is working, people are still arriving, having survived 95,000,000 trillion miles. Those that didn’t get on, or refused the option now long deceases, as is planet earth. We all now live on Hope. in hope that we will never again succumb to the follies of pollution.
My name: Metalbot, no I am not a robot, just my parents thought I would need the resilience of one to survive the future, if only they knew. This is my first entry in a brand new journal in the year 0001, months, season, not yet decided, a day here equivalent to two and three quarters longer from whence we came. We’ve a lot to work on, but we live in hope.
