A strange glowing poisonous looking green liquid was flowing through various cracks on the walls and ground lighting up the room. The walls were lined with a row of bizarre statues with green glowing eyes.
Alexander felt like those statues were staring into his soul as if they were alive.
He shook his head and took a deep gulp of saliva in order to forget his fears. After thinking long and hard, he finally decided to suck it up and enter the room.
As he reached near the center of the room, he noticed a glowing altar with a golden orb floating on top of it.
Alexander stood there in shock admiring the beauty and grandeur of what he just witnessed. The sight was something no human would have ever imagined. The orb was floating in the air above the altar like some sort of magic was controlling it. The orb was very small around the size of an egg and shined very vigorously giving off a magical looking aura. One could not help but stop and admire its beauty.
After staring at the orb for over 2 minutes, a drop of green liquid fell from the ceiling and landed on Alexander's head snapping him out of his daze.
To his surprise, the liquid was not poisonous at all. Rather, the liquid made him feel energized and more powerful than he ever felt before. It was like a liquid that gives energy. This made Alexander more curious about the origin of the liquid.
He noticed that all the liquid was being created from the strange orb on the altar. He began to slowly tiptoe towards the Altar. He stopped and stood very cautiously in front of it.
He was very worried about whether or not he should take the orb. Many ruins usually have multiple dangerous traps in order to protect their treasures.
After 5 minutes of contemplating, he finally decided to take it. Alexander began sweating buckets while also shaking like crazy. As his hands slowly approached the orb, they stopped 1 centimeter away from it. He took in a deep breath and screamed at the top of his lungs,
"Fuck it doood!!"
as he quickly snatched it away from the altar. Immediately after the orb left the altar, it vanished into little glowing golden dust. Not too long after that, the entire room started shaking like crazy. It felt like the room was going to collapse onto him.
Alexander started to look around the room in a panic, trying his best to understand what was happening.
As he was running out of breath and was about to give up, he noticed that all the green liquid finally finished gathering at the altar.
At that moment, the liquid evaporated into thin air and a green beam of light suddenly shot out of the altar. The beam pierced through the roof of the temple and shot out into the sky.
Shortly after that, similar green beams of light were spotted all around the world. A total of 26 beams were shot out. i𝒏𝐧𝒓ea𝚍.＆nbsp;𝘤𝗼𝓶
Alexander was standing there out of breath panting heavily after barely managing to survive the ordeal. He looked up into the sky and noticed green rain falling towards him.
This was the turning point for humanity.
After the green rain fell, everyone on earth noticed that they started to develop special superpowers, some were unique, and some were generic. Powers only seen in fiction were now possible in real life.
The green beams were soon found to be an incredible power source. Each power source was easily able to power the current earth for thousands of years.
These new revelations ushered in the biggest golden age humanity had ever experienced.
In order to maximize the gains from the new power sources, humanity decided on creating 26 new countries around the new power sources. Each country was named after a letter of the alphabet from A to Z. Each one had a green protective bubble around the country in order to separate the borders while also acting as a strong defensive shield.
Technological advancements had a massive boom due to the newfound abilities and power sources. Inventions like Teleporters and Holograms were now a normal sight to see throughout the world.
Humanity was now also able to go to other planets due to new warping technology. However, not many other planets were colonized and only a few bases were set there.
Each person is only able to wield one ability so once you get an ability there is no changing it. Some people were not able to automatically get an ability from the green rain so humanity developed special ability crystals called ability orbs that are able to contain an existing ability.
These ability orbs allow people with no abilities to learn the ability that is imbued inside the orb by absorbing it. This invention was very important because the newborns of the next generations were not born with new abilities.
These ability orbs allowed families to pass down their abilities to their children and it allowed people with no ability to buy a new ability off the market.
Humanity lived in peace with not a single massive global issue for 100 years.
But then everything changed when the Shalkers attacked.
January 7th, 2121, a huge battalion of alien ships were spotted on top of a protective defensive bubble outside of country Z. They are known as the Shalkers.
The Shalkers were an advanced humanoid alien race that was feared all around the Galaxy. They look very similar to humans. they have a nearly identical size and body shape to that of humans. The only distinguishing features that differentiate them are their completely white skin, the single horn that grows on the right side of their head, and the glowing red lines that are on their face.
The Shalkers came to earth after sensing an abnormally large power reading coming from the planet. This was due to the discovery of abilities. The Shalkers waged war on humans because they felt like they were a threat due to their sudden influx in power.
The war stood at a standstill for over 4 years. There was clearly no winning side. The Shalkers were superior to humans in nearly every way. But even with all their advantages, they were unable to win the war. This was due to their lack of special abilities.
Neither side was able to gain ground on one another. In the end, both sides agreed that this war was going nowhere and had no clear winner. A treaty of peace was signed between humans and Shalkers on February 7th, 2125, which marked the end of the war.
This event left a big impact on humanity. Humanity lost nearly a billion soldiers during the war with the Shalkers. Humans understood that this peace treaty was only temporary and the war will eventually start again. Humanity became more focused on military strength more than ever before.
This event unified all humans into one new military force in order to prepare for the inevitable second war with the Shalkers.
A new era was then created. One's social standing completely depended on one's strength. Those with weak abilities were discriminated against and were forced into working the worst jobs. They were seen as dispensable and insignificant in the eyes of the military and government.
A new society of the strong ruling the weak was born. Children were taught how to fight in schools from the age of 8. This was in order to well train the next generations in preparation for the impending war. Also, upon reaching 16 years of age, all students were forced to attend 2 years of military school.
Military school is the place that will decide one's future. It is a ruthless place that will determine who will become great and who will become trash. Where dreams can come true and where dreams can be crushed.
Moby Kane, a young abilityless boy is now packing his bags preparing to go to military school.
Will he survive?
or will he get eaten up by society?
