A Promise Kept

We were on the brink of destruction when they came. A super virus1 was ravaging the planet and climate change guaranteed our extinction.

They appeared in the night sky2 promised us refuge from our dying planet.

It sounded too good to be true.

The catch was that they couldn’t take everyone. Some people would be left behind. They lined us up3 and studied us. Studied our hearts4 and our brains5.

People came from the most remote locations6 for their chance on the spaceships7.

Those that passed were put in cryogenic tubes8 and safely preserved for travel. Full ships started leaving daily.

We missed the signs; the critical pieces9 that would have shown us the truth.

To them, we were food.
