Alice through the looking glass #56


"Everything died. Everything! Humans have never experienced destruction on that scale. Sure, they've had tiny glimpses... Nagasaki and Hiroshima. But they are nothing compared to the flash.

Everything burned. What was left was poisoned with Iridium and then frozen in the cold. Our beautiful world; lush, green, forests. Magnificent animals. Blue skies. Gone, all gone in an instant because of a stupid machine." Tovey was hissing now. His rage plainly evident.

"I'm not even real! I'm a clone! A modified clone at that! We polluted our genome to survive. Our evolution stopped when the flash lit the sky with pain."
