How they met…

“Um, I think that baby planet, is getting kind of close.”

She looked up, and said, “It’s going to hit us soon.”

“How can you be so casual about it?” he asked, nervously.

“There’s nothing we can do.  It’s better than the sun coming at us and killing us before it got that close, isn’t it?  I mean, whatever happens, it will be quick.”

“So, we’re all going to die and you’re sitting here reading a book and petting a cat?”

“I’m trying to finish the last chapter, so I know how it ends.  I already know how we’re going to end.”

“People are outside screaming and running around.”

“Is that doing any good?” she asked, turning the page.

“Of course not,” he said.  “Do you want me to hug you?”

“No thanks.  I don’t even know you.”

“How can that possibly matter, when we’re going to die?”

“Thanks anyway.”

“I never really liked living on the moon.”

“Then why did you come here?”

“I don’t know,” he said, shrugging.  “My name’s Jack.”

“I’m Gina and this is my cat, Agnes.”

“Nice to meet you,” he said.

“You too.”

“How much longer do you think it will be?”

“Not long, you can feel the changes already.”

“What are you reading?”

“1984.”

“You don’t have to read it, you know what it was like.”

“Still, I found this old copy, hidden in a bunker, so I thought, why not.”

“At least Big Brother will be dead soon.”

“I hope so,” she said, scratching her cat’s ears.

“What do you mean, you hope so?”

“Evil is hard to kill; you should know that by now.”

“I don’t feel so good,” he said.

“Come and sit next to us.  The planet’s starting to break apart from… ”

“I don’t care.”

“Okay, just think of nice sunny beaches and palm trees.  Birds and all the beautiful animals.”

“You mean like the one’s we’ve seen in books?”

“Yes, like those.  Do you want me to put my arm around you?”

He nodded and snuggled up to her. He put his head on her shoulder and she leaned into him.  “Are you afraid?” he asked, softly.

“Not as much as I am sorry,” she said, feeling the tremors increase dramatically.

“Sorry?  About what?” he shouted.

“Sorry the humans destroyed the earth in the first place,” she said loudly, since the noise was beginning to hurt, as pieces of the tiny planet started hitting the moon.

“Oh, that,” he bellowed.  “Me too.”

“It was nice meeting you Jack,” she yelled.

“You and Agnes too,”  he shouted.

“Goodbye.”

    Goosebumps!!
    I am sorry about the same, how the humans are destroying the earth! It’s just sad really.

    • Yes, sad and deadly to every living thing. I think that just proves that our species is insane and pretty much suicidal.

        Worse is when people treat environment problems like they are fictional or something made up by a small section to feel occupied! For them “everything is fine”. I am not even married yet but still I find myself worrying about the kind of life my future child (someday hopefully) will have.

      • You have every reason to worry. I hate to say that, but it’s true.

    I’m sure the evil has reached another solar system, and we’re not even living on the moon, yet.

    • I can’t argue with that. Supposedly, there’s a base on the moon, the pictures, before they are altered, show that very clearly, and the astronauts said so too (or were overheard). I’m sure evil is everywhere. If we are involved, in any way at all,then there’s no doubt about it.
