Original Fic: Below the Moon
Below the Moon
by jennickels (aka Jen Connelly)
The world ends, the moon continues on.
Scotty races through the tunnels, darting back and forth between the throngs of people—mostly miners changing shifts. The elevators are so overloaded he’s surprised they don’t crash to the level below. He chooses the stairs.
Bursting into the Atrium, he’s thrown momentarily—the usually active shopping hub is completely silent, the patrons staring up at the dome stretching across the sky.
“It’s true,” Scotty murmurs. “They finally did it.” He climbs some scaffolding for a better view. Above… below… whatever spins the Earth—large plumes of smoke popping up over the continents. Someone sobs.
Now they are truly alone.
