An experimental short story based upon an allegory on the rebirth of a new mankind.

Within our hollow Earth as a wandering and lonely terrain. Where the soil is jade, and the energy is in absolve. Yet the contact of a soul is unknown and ordered in isolation. The subtle echo of the quiet wind is reminiscent of a wandering desert. The scorching fires dominate the skies under a flaming all-seeing eye. The desperate Earth, calls for a sign of hope.

 

At the heat of the naked eye, a shadow appears in the distance. A trail of sand accompanies the movement of the distant figure. Slow by pace, shadows among the ground become fewer in size. A glowing orange aura surrounds the moving figure. At a closer perspective, a tall athletic man with jet black hair with hints of gold stream among the wave lines of his hair. With the eyes of a tiger, intelligence and passion arouse the naked eye at sight. Wandering in the Green Desert, the man continues his adventure in finding life. Around his neck, a shiny blue sapphire, so beautiful that life can be foreseen if viewed closely in the heat of the moment.

 

Through the passing skies of the all-seeing eye, a new twilight appears. The skies darkened by the gulf of space; a cold breeze swishes the atmosphere. At the feet of the ground, the sands become cold. The land no longer in isolation, begins to change. Ghosts of the damned, absorb their presence to allude to the shining moon.

 

A shimmer of light beams through the vengeful spirits. The man reminded of the dread, ignores to pass through the angry land. Haunted by visions, the earth was once pure. Its downfall led to the cost of mankind's stupidity. Raging mushrooms of fire in the skies, turning life into thin air. An echo in the mind reminds the man of the importance of the Green Desert.

 

As time revolves slowly like a running turtle, the desert evolves into a furious and dynamic storm. Posed by danger, the man attempts to find shelter. Yet the storm of fury becomes a might of power to evade. He has swept away.

 

Buried in the sands of time, he arises to the top once more. In the corner of his eye, a pyramid glooms in the distance in an exotic green aura. A voice so gentle surrounds the echoing land calls to him. The sound of a beautiful woman, something unheard of for the longest of time. Hurrying away, the pyramid comes closer.

 

At the end of the pyramid stands a beautiful and exotic woman. Eyes as green as the desert and with black and blue hair, shining like a blue sapphire. She emits a loving presence. Would it be the rebirth of mankind? Or would it be only a false prophet?

 

Under the all-seeing eye, only time will tell in the Green Desert.
