Beauty meets the Beast in a dystopian future.
Inspiring Soundtrack:M83 – Undimmed By Time, Unbound By Death – Oblivion Soundtrack
After the biochemical devastation our planet endured centuries ago, those of us who survived have been searching for a way to turn back the harsh hands of time. The burden weighs heavily upon us – to reintroduce our species, now endangered, back into its natural environment.
A world that has learned to heal itself.
We scoured the scorched earth to find her, our Eve, the last of mankind found untainted.
A single strand of hair harboring a helix of human hope.
I watch as her eyes flutter open for the first time, this beautiful creature whose curious gaze finds me and does not falter.
What must she think of me, this shell of a man who survived the end of the world yet bears the scars of its battles – I am barely human anymore.
I reach my hand out and gently grasp her flawless fingers in mine, “Welcome to Eden.”
