The Arks: Over Heaven

Prologue: Ill-Fated (REPOST)

Part 2/2

“Greetings, fellow students. It truly is an honor to be your valedictorian, to be here standing in front of you to give you my thanks. My appreciation goes out to my parents who supported me my entire life, my teachers who helped me get to where I needed to be, to my friends who were there whenever I felt lost and hopeless,” Aurora paused, as she seemed to be contemplating if she should keep on going. “And to my boyfriend, who I will never forget. He may not be with us anymore, but he’s the reason that I have a future now.”

Everyone went silent, as they seemed to be giving her a moment of silence to mourn. Not even Nova scoffed, as she looked on solemnly.

“But, enough of me. Mr. Mo is right. Starting today, we move onto a new chapter of our lives. We’re going to need to tough it out, because life won’t be so easy now. You think high school is hard? Just wait until you get a job! That’s what my parents would say, at least.”

“She’s gotta be kidding,” Samuel muttered as he turned white.

“And even if you weren’t the greatest student, it shouldn’t stop you from being a good person. You can do it, you can do whatever you want to do, just let your heart and mind lead the way, and you will always succeed. Life is hard, and tough times will come, but tough people will last,” Aurora closed her eyes and smiled, rubbing her eyes a little as she said, “That’s all for now.”

As Aurora stepped away from the microphone, Mr. Mo ran up and grabbed the microphone.

“What are you guys waiting for? Get ready to throw your caps up in the air!”

Everyone began to murmur in excitement, as they took hold of their caps.

“TEN! NINE! EIGHT!”

The soon-to-be adults began to chant the countdown along with Mr. Mo. Samuel and Nova joined in too, smiles growing on their faces.

“SEVEN! SIX! FIVE!”

The screaming grew louder and louder to the point that Samuel’s ears started to hurt.

“FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE-”

Suddenly Mr. Mo let out a loud gasp of pain, as he fell to his knees, clutching his wrist. Everyone stopped the countdown, and whispers began to radiate throughout the crowd.

“What’s going on? What happened to Mr. Mo?” the people asked. Just at that moment, Aurora screamed out too, visible pain across her face as her wrist began to bleed. As soon as Aurora started to cry out in pain, many more people in the crowd began to feel it too. By the dozen, everyone was writhing around, an unexplainable pain in their left wrist.

“AGHHHH!” Nova screamed as she fell. Samuel caught her, yelling, “Don’t worry, I got you!”

The sky above them suddenly began to generate clouds, and the blazing ball of fire they called the Sun began to move around the sky at an alarming rate. The sky seemed to be generating streaks of red, blue, and green, spinning around in a triangle and aiming right down at them.

Samuel looked up in horror as a bright light enveloped everyone, and before he knew it his conscience slipped away.

Author's Note

Hi, this is the author of The Arks Over Heaven. The original Prologue was in Achatina, but there is lot of traffic so I reposted here in Wyvern for ease of access.

To Newer Readers; If you're a new reader, thanks for taking your time to read the Prologue of TAOH! If you'd like to keep reading because you're interested, the story follows the Aerial filter in reverse. Chapter 1 is in Wyvern too, by the way (however I posted Chap 1 before Wyvern, so you might have to scroll). If you dont, fine by me. But if you like ark fanfic like this one, drop by Achatina and say hello. There are lots of other writers there with their own unique stories. Have a good day, and see you soon if you plan on dropping by!
