“We will never be the same,” said the young man who knew the secrets of the universe, who knew the stars as well as he knew his own name.
“But I don’t think we’re ever going to be the same,” said the old man.
In that moment, we all knew that it was time to go. We gathered our belongings together and left this world behind.
The wind howled and the moonlight danced as we all climbed aboard the ship.
As we rounded the horizon and flew into the night, the stars glimmered and the black of the space was upon us.
The ship rocked and tossed as we went into the night sky. I thought to myself, as my body trembled with every movement. “Is a dream…?”
The stars danced in the night sky when, all of a sudden, my world ended.
I found myself in a black void that wasn't just the void I was in before. I could sense everything around me, but it wasn’t in any way like how I knew it was supposed to feel. There was nothing in front of me. There was nothing behind me. Nothing. Everything felt empty, and I was just sitting there. The void didn’t move, no matter how hard I tried to shake it. I felt a weight on my head. It was a strange feeling as if a light was going off above me, and I was just in the darkness waiting to be illuminated.
And then it happened. The darkness opened up. And I was HERE.
