The demons came from the stars. I could even show you which he said they came from, if we could see the stars anymore. It was once believed that evil
came from below and that God and the hosts of good lived above. Funny that we could have it so wrong, there is evil above. But that is not what you
came to hear is it? You came to hear of the times before the darkness, the times of flame and sadness, how the demons made it so no longer could the
stars, sun and moon smiled down upon us in their benevolence.
I was very young when they came, maybe five or six relightings of the fires. They came to us in great ships promising prosperity, advancement and
enlightenment. But in the end, all they gave us was enslavement, conflict and death. Like I said I was a very young when they came and it was such a
long time ago. But I still remember the day as if it were yesterday. Our government. What is a government you say? Think of it as a larger council of
elders bringing together many different communities, there was of course many more of us in those days. It is the great misery of the old to know
exactly how much we have lost, but I don’t expect you to understand that. Anyway, our scientists reported that they detected large objects just
outside our solar system hurtling through space at impossible speeds. There were those that said those objects would be our doom, but, we laughed them
off as paranoid.
Shortly afterwards, we received transmitions from those objects. I never heard those messages. But our governments assured us their intentions were
peaceful, again perhaps we should have listened to those we dismissed as paranoid. So, we prepared to welcome our visitors. The various governments of
course grandstanded, bickered and argued as to whom should have the honor to be chief in welcoming our incoming “friends”.
Anyway, a nation, that's another word for government, across the sea secured that honor. I am not sure how exactly, I just know they did, though they
would suffer for it in the end. The day quickly drew near that they would be landing. I and all the people on our planet who could not or would not
attend the landing was glued to our TV sets. We watched as the three huge ships entered our atmosphere and came to float stationary over that
nation's capital city and smaller crafts landed upon the lawn of that nation's leader's home. That was when we saw them. In my young naivete I
expected them to look like us, I could not have been more wrong. They were, alien, hidious looking if you were to ask me at that time. I could not
imagine the world they came from where before in my young mind I rather thought it was like home.
Please note: It IS a work in progress but I was hoping for some opinions for what I have gotten thus far. I will be editting this first post to
