This is my attempt at writing a short story.
I got out of bed as usual when i was waken by the central alarm which goes off every morning at 6 am but i’m still tired from yesterdays outing, but its time for me to go out for another days hunting. I’ll have a shower, put on my uniform and head down for breakfast to the canteen. When i say breakfast i mean pills and water we do not have food. The shower by the way uses no water, it sterilize’s the skin.
My name is Arcon, i am a relic hunter. There are ten of us in the dome and we go out once a week and only for two days, this is the length of time we are allowed outside to work in order to be safe. We search the land and remains of buildings for any relics from the past when earth prospered.
It is the year 2517, earth has been ravaged and nearly destroyed by mankind in several ways, 90% of the population has been wiped out and there are very few animals left and the land mass has been halved with continents lost.
Let me tell you how it all started.
