The Heights of a New Dawn
The evening came with majestic colors, everyone in awe looking up at the imposing peak of Everest. One representative of each group spoke about how they foresee the future of humanity. It was soon Mr. Sloto’s turn to speak to the survivors of the cataclysm, when suddenly, in the distance, several red and orange lights were seen. Everyone fell silent. The lights made random and quick patterns in the sky.
“What are they?!” – spoke a leader from South America.
“Is that….” – voiced a leader from Siberia.
The lights got closer and closer. Mr. Sloto stared amazed at the patterns they made. Soon enough, they were so near you could see a kind of translucent metal that gave out all kinds of light.
“Stop Mr. Sloto” – yelled Mrs. Sloto as Mr. Sloto hypnotically started to walk to the nearest peak.
Mr. Sloto continued his way and the flying objects got closer to him. Suddenly, they were only a few dozen feet from his head. Mr. Sloto raised his arms and, in that instant, a bright white light was shot out of the bottom of the flying object. The entire Himalayan Island was engulfed in white light.
Moments later Mr. Sloto woke up on a bed, hearing beeping sounds around him. The light was very strong and there were beings moving around him. He then began to hear voices: “He will survive, it’s was just a blown circuit near his main frame.”
Mr. Sloto was able to focus his eyes better after they became accustomed to the light. What he saw shocked him to the core of his reels.
He was in a hospital bed, surrounded by doctors and scientists. Mrs. Sloto was right beside him.
“Where am I?” – asked Mr. Sloto.
The main doctor came next to him and spoke: “We are glad to see you recover consciousness. Since your house burnt down after Christmas, your system went into complete shock. We had to hospitalize you for several weeks now. You could only mumble words here and there, but it seems you were running various simulations in your head, possible scenarios of doom: flooding, volcano gods, invasion of the Earth by extraterrestrials.”
Mr. Sloto could not believe his ears. He had been dreaming all those crazy scenes.
“You need to remain at rest, until we are sure your system is back to normal” – said the doctor. “When you get out, you will need to stay isolated as much as possible, because of the virus…”
Mr. Sloto, perplexed, said out loud: “VIRUS?!”
