chapter I. the end.
first it rained crows.

one by one they were plucked from the sky, and dropped to create a massive black sea of feathers and talons that spasmed along the sidewalks, streets, buildings and parks. they pelted down and shattered the windows of shops and cars as they swerved and skidded along the street, screeching to a halt. the humans slowly, cautiously like a newborn deer made their way out, opening their doors and emptying into the streets to gaze into the heavens at the omen that was before them. they didn't understand, and so they ignored.

you have brought this on yourself.

they waged war against one another like so many times before, ...view middle of the document...

it was their fault. always their fault. i heard the wailing of the trees as they rotted and burned. the cry of the oceans as they were poisoned, and the agony of the animals as their lungs filled with soot. but the humans did not hear what i heard amongst their fighting, they refused to listen. until their own kind began to drop.

adapt or die.

they say that in the last moments of life, your mind and spirit are fragile. you let go of all control and accept your fate, welcoming it. it's in our nature. when the time comes for you to return to the earth, and give back what you have borrowed, you will know. there are those, though who do not. those who avoid and run from their fate, fighting and sneaking and conniving until their very last breath. he was one of them, the old man. he was a snake. a man with no morals, no remorse. out of all the humans, he was quickest to adapt. after a lifetime of cheating and lying, a world of chaos was familiar to him.
