Grasping the Sky

Humans are destined to die someday, to be inanimate and lifeless where we have no experience whatsoever with these type of topics. Before any of these, what would we like to do? Simply wait our days of departing? Or choose to fully enjoy our life? Humans are born with natural talents that helps and sometimes guarantee survival based on their usefulness. However, this tale is about those who do not have them.


12. The Event Part 2

After H and B demonstrated unrecorded ability, they were easily accepted to be sent to the Upper World. However, for me, I barely succeeded because acupuncture as emergency treatment was not common and it had less value in the Upper World as they had advanced medical technology. However, when I demonstrated using these ability to disable opponent's body parts, it was concluded that it was worthy of being studied yet unpractical for daily use. After four and a half ours of waiting for everyone else's turn, the head administrator announced, "Its time for our closing ceremony, the ones who were marked as passed will be coming to The Bridge, the one and only connection between the Under World and the Upper World." Without much word, we went to The Bridge which was heavily guarded by elite guards. Just few more steps and I could have arrived to the Upper World, but I heard series of explosive noise, and I witnessed the arrival of UnderGround army. "I know that you, the successor of the Upper World is here!" the man who seemed like the leader of the group spoke, "My name is G, and I am willing to use my own life to end your life!" I honestly did not have any idea of what is going on anymore. I looked at H and B, and it was obvious that they were hiding something. H spoke, "I am sorry, but here is where we depart." "Eh?" I was falling - no - the ground of the Bridge was collapsing. "Why?" I asked while hanging in the metal bar of the bridge. "My real name is Hale, I am servant of the successor Beatrice, the next leader of the Upper World," Hale explained, "We are only here to see how worthless people of this world is, and also discover useful ability that our next successor can use." "Why do you have to do this?" I asked. "I apologize but you have not a single bit of knowledge of cruelty of our world either. Do you know how the Upper World floats?" she asked me? "No, I do not," I replied. "Well then, we use gravity manipulator's body to extract energy known as Source. We abduct people from Under World and use their Source to power our gravity manipulator's corpse, mostly the brain, to continuously stabilize the Upper World," Hale replied. Her words that described this inhumane act as if its a daily chore triggered something within me. "YOU INHUMANE-" Beatrice blew my arm away from the metal beam that I was holding on to. Her ability was shock wave.
