The Unbreathable Planet
Written and created by Kazumi Mai
PrologueThe Unbreathable Planet. This is what they call the world that used to thrive with life. Green fields and dense forests. Vast oceans and blue rivers. Plants and wild life. Nature. Such a beautiful world; it seemed like a fantasy. It was perfect for those of great intelligence that lived on this world. Perfect enough to consume every last resource they could get their greedy hands on and drained every last part of the planet’s life. This planet used to be called Earth. A boring yet different and unique name.
So unlike compared to the other planets around it.
Thousands of years ago, it was known for its astounding lands and waters. It was a world to admire. The planet is still called Earth, but people just…thought it would be nice to give it a nickname. One that went with the planet in its current situation. Because now, not one creature can naturally breathe on this horrific planet.
Humans. After their work of pollution and radiation couldn’t go any further, fake oxygen had to be constantly pumped into the lower atmosphere. But that wasn’t enough as microbes were injected into people to filter the air they breathed into oxygen. Plants and animals were long gone extinct. The population dropped from 20 billion to less than a million. It was as if humans wanted to destroy themselves and the world they lived in.
The Earth cried for help. It didn’t want this to happen. She called and cried as loud as she could. But as time went on, Earth gave up…and let the people dry her up.
Now, Earth’s cry has finally been answered.
