… and then there was nothing. I was assailed that day by a blinding light as I gazed upon the cold new dawn, seized by a paralyzing fear as the great cataclysm burned silently in the sky. Where once there were stars like precious diamonds in the night, there was now a brilliant emptiness. Whence came it? Was it of divine conception or something far more sinister?
For so long our desolate planet has suffered us our existence. Even the mightiest rivers trickled parched through the cracks of barren land. When the void appeared, it gave us hope: a chance to rebuild far away. We would not make the same mistakes again.
In a glade of frosted white-tipped flowers there had stood an ancient cherry blossom. I remember how we had spent our first night together there, relishing in our newfound love. But when the void appeared, we found it scorched and withered, consumed by a cruel inferno, and the world burned and burned and we wept for our past and for our future.
As the day drew closer, I knew my task was futile. Tomorrow I would be called to duty; tomorrow I would be sent into the void. I was considered by many a hero, the ‘bravest explorer of the final frontier,’ the saviour of our race. I never disclosed my true peril to her... I knew I would never return. On the last night we stood on the edge of our bitter world and felt the dry wind on our hair, hand in hand as the dusts of the once fertile plains swept around us.
In the end we were twelve: twelve mothers and fathers, each of us courageous pioneers, each of us desperate in our hope. Was there surely a new world beyond that great cataclysm in the sky? As we departed from our world and travelled towards our brighter future, I pondered our diminishing hope. I pondered how our race struggled to survive even in a dying universe from which none could escape, and yet we believed that the void would set us free.
Approaching that terrible cataclysm, I was filled with awe - a relentless surge of fear, abhorrence and wonder that filled my entire being. I could see it in the eyes of my companions too. As our vessel began to buckle beneath extraordinary pressures, I closed my eyes. What fate awaited us when we passed the event horizon, none could say. The night was pulsing; it knew no fear.
In that brief moment we travelled billions of light years. I became too enthralled with a rapturous fear to remember anything other than the incessant cruel voices whispering in my ears. It was surely the voices of the gods, of the atrocious divine few who have toyed so mercilessly with us, their puppets. And then suddenly, all was calm. We had passed through the restless fourth dimension to find a sky entirely empty save for one solitary earth-like planet that utterly filled our horizon. A grave feeling descended upon us then, as we acknowledged that this was our only option. Fuel reserves were nearly dry, and its gravity pulled us ever downwards in a relentless spiral.
And so I sit here, writing my final goodbye. Of the twelve explorers, I am the last survivor, all alone in this cruel, callous world, reeling with a broken heart and broken hope. We longed for something new, but this planet is no utopia. Indeed, it is as parched and cold as our own. My mouth aches for water; every word I write causes pain. There is no solace in the grit and the ash, just shattered dreams in an accursed universe. I think I shan’t last another day, however I simply hope this message reaches somebody before…
And so just over a year later by human standards, the lone wanderer arrived to find eleven shabbily dug graves and one solitary skeleton, its spacesuit lying to its right. And he wept: a most terrible piercing cry totally absent of tears. He cradled the skull in his own skeletal hands and cursed this unfeeling dying universe to which he was still a slave. And then he noticed a brace of scarlet, blood-like flowers growing on the skull like a majestic crown, like a candle in the dark, and he was glad.
