The Ultimate Talent Show

Set 300 years in the future, planet Earth is wrecked. With basic supplies long gone, things are getting desperate. The human race is taking drastic measures to preserve the once-powerful species. But when scientists create an emergency escape shuttle, things take a turn for the worse- if that's possible...


9. Take-off

I sat next to mum, strapped tightly into the seats of the capsule. A large screen was suspended on the wall, counting down the seconds until the take-off. 60 seconds.

"It's ok, mum. It will all be fine." I clutched her hand tightly. Looking past the bulky restraints on the seat, I saw a single tear rolling down her cheek. "It's what Sarah would have wanted." I said, choking back my own tears, grasping her hand even tighter. 

The countdown reached ten. I smiled at mum, and she smiled back, through streams of tears. I felt the rumbling of the capsule about to launch. 

As the number zero flashed up on the screen, I looked up at the sky. "Good bye, Sarah." I whispered, letting a single tear escape as we began our new lives.
