UNDER THE EARTH

WHEN YOU CAN SEE AGAIN YOU ARE STANDING IN WHAT APPEARS TO BE LIKE A GIANT DOME. THE WALLS LOOK TO BE HELD IN PLACE BY AN INVISIBLE FORCE WHILE THE DIRT STILL SWIRLS UNDERNEATH ITS PRESSURE.

 

THE MOTION IS SICKENING TO LOOK AT.

BEFORE STANDS A STATUE WITH THREE GOLD BUSHES EITHER SIDE OF IT.

THESE GOLD BUSHES EMIT BASS LINES AS THEY GENTLY PUSLE. THESE PULSES WASH PAST YOU AND SILENTLY SLAM HARD INTO THE SIDES OF THE DOME. YOU SPECULATE THAT MAYBE THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING THE STRUCTURE OF THE DOME INTACT. 

THE STATUE SEEMS TO WATCH YOU.

 

ITS MATERIAL IS URECOGNISABLE AND THE CRAFT THAT MADE IT IS ONE THAT HISTORY HAS FORGOTTEN.  A THICK LIQUID FLOWS UNDER THE TOP LAYER OF ITS SURFACE WHICH GENTLY ILLUMIATES THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE.

ON A WHOLE THE STRUCTURE JUST SEEMS TO BE A FORGOTTEN RELIC

WHILST WALKING UP TO IT YOU START TO NOTICE ITS 

 

EYES

THE EYES THAT TELL A DIFFERENT STORY

AND THE MORE YOU LOOK 

THE MORE YOU SEE THAT ITS EYES

ARE STARING AT YOU 

ALIVE

QUIVERING 

UNTRUSTING

WATCHING YOUR EVERY MOVE

THOSE SILENT EYES 

THOSE TERRIFIED EYES

BLOODSHOT AND STRAINED 

YOU ARE FROZEN IN PLACE

REMINDED THAT YOU ACTUALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS PLACE IS 

AND NOW YOU ARE PAINFULLY AWARE THAT YOU ARE BEING WATCHED

BY SOMETHING

IN THE STATUE

YOU HEAR A VOICE

"WE HAVE TAKEN YOU OFF THE SURFACE SO YOU CAN BE REMEBERED WITH YOUR FAMILY DOWN HERE"

YOU'RE CONFUSED AND REPLY SAYING ALL YOUR FAMILY ARE ON THE SURFACE 

THEY REPLY THIR TONE MORE FIRM  

"THIS IS NOT SO"

" YOUR FAMILY EXTENDS BEYOND THOSE THAT YOU KNOW. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU BEING ABLE TO LIVE AS YOU DO NOW. THE LIVES WE LIVE WOULD BE SEEN AS SCIENCE FICTION TO SOME IN THE PAST, BUT THEIR DREAMS ENABLED US TO GET HERE."

............

I NEED YOU TO REMEMBER A TIME IN YOUR LIFE WHERE LIVING AS YOU DO WAS A FANATASY 

A DREAM

MAYBE IT STILL IS

MAYBE YOU ARE NOT THERE YET

MAYBE YOU HAVE BEEN LIVING THIS DREAM FOR A WHILE NOW

THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A TIME WHERE SOMEONE HAS TOLD US THAT 

YOU CAN'T LIVE YOUR LIFE LIKE YOU DO

OR THAT

THAT THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE

DOESNT EXSIST 

WE HAVE TO IMAGINE OUR LIVES AS WE WANT TO LIVE THEM 

TO DO THIS

IS TO USE SCIENCE FICTION

SPECULATIVE FICTION 

FANTASY

AND WITHOUT THOUGHT LIKE THIS 

WE WOULDNT EXSIST 

SO THOSE THAT HAVE IMAGINED A PLACE FOR YOU HERE

ARE THE FAMILY THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT EXSISTS 

MEET THESE FAMILY MEMEBERS
