Scifi / Fantasy

Blurb

Life can seem easy and joyful at the beginning, yet there is this awkward feeling of dreams being too real. Then you're crushed to wake up, and again and again - not being able to distinguish the dream from reality. The love, the hate, the past - They are pulled to discover more about themselves. One falls into madness, another deep in love, other further in broken longing. He's trying to get her back. With all he has. His love endlessly fighting to save her.

Prologue

Prologue

His breathing heavy, unable to move, body held by exoskeleton, although lower half is already sunken to the floor, legs scraped and cut by parts of broken glass, some bits already stuck in flesh.

He is bleeding. Unable to move, speak or even cry.

From what he sees in this room – it has been decades. Many years since everyone got killed. Mummified corpses of researchers are left around, in same places they were shot.

Facility running on reserve energy supply from hell knows where. Air is heavy, dusty, most of research lab raided and destroyed.

Monitors, although covered with layers of dust, display graphs and stats of the last existing patients – test subjects, still attached to the system.

He knows – there is no way for him to survive. He gives a look around – glance leads to another cryogenic container. There is someone else, besides him, who’ll have more chances of survival. Way more chances than he does.

With all there is left for him – he can last another 6-8 hours more, before last bit of his mind fails him, just like his disabled body that is dying rapidly.

Time that’s left – he must get her out. She is last of the once existing family. His hopes are now on her.

He closes his eyes once more.

“System Compliance Granted” – rippled muffled voice of AI says as he drifts off.
