New era for a new age

It is a new dawn for the 20th century, 2028 has just begun and steam-power has taken technology over. But, one day when the world is struck with a power crisis. The government seeks out for advanced inventors from all of the countries, it'll take four inventors with unlikely talents to save the whole world from this world wide problem.


4. Jokes shouldn't be taken seriously


I blink a bit and then start to laugh, this might've been the first time I've laughed in year's. 

"You're kidding right? What can a average inventor like me do to save the world?!" I say in between laughs

"Micheal! This isn't a joke! It's serious, the world is in danger!" Noa say's a bit upset.

"With what?" I fake gasp "Don't tell me that the dragon's and other mythical creatures are coming to life!" I say and laugh.

     The Major and Noa give me a stern and hard glare, I blink and slowly stop.I slowly start to realize their not kidding, I give them a concern look.

"What's going on?"

"It's classified information, but were here to recruit you into a secret program." Major says.

"Secret program?"

"We're rounding up the best inventor's around the whole country. But, we only need four inventor's for this...only us three know what's going on." Noa says.

"The U.S.P doesn't even know about this. You must promise us you won't tell a single soul about this." Major adds

     I nod, they walk to the back of my shop. I follow behind slowly, curiosity slowly consuming me.   We all sit in the back in some chairs, Noa takes out a circular device that I recognize by a mile.

"Isn't that the steam-a-polyphonic sphere for the power gem?" I ask

Noa nod's slowly but then shakes her head, "It WAS the steam-a-polyphonic sphere, but now its just a well decorated piece of metal." She says and opens it, I flinch and cover myself and wait. Usually you shouldn't open them but nothing happens.

I blink and look at it and see that the gem is black and is slowly turning into dust.

"What the-!? That's impossible! All the top inventors and scientists made this, none of THAT should be happening!" I say a bit freaked.

Noa and the major sigh, "Sadly it is, all the power from the gem's are vanishing at alarming rate. At first we thought it was just a flaw in the tech...but then the whole capital went into a black out." Noa say's.

"But that's irrational! The gem's energy levels are in stable condition to power cities, states and even the whole country!" 

"Indeed, but now someone's going out of their way to end it."

"BUT THE GEM-! Wait what? A person did all of this?" I ask

The major looks at me sternly, "Yes, this person used a special chemical to damage the gem but not the machine itself."

"But...there isn't a chemical that can destroy the gem."

"There is now," Noa says. " And whomever made the chemical is slowly destroying the planet."

I sit there in shock and look down at the sphere. There's a person out there trying to destroy my home and millions of others....what could do this and more importantly WHO?
