Breena : Evyn ? Evyn, are you awake ?
Evyn : Yeah Bree, I'm awake.
Breena : Do you think it'll be different this time ?
Evyn : I don't know, but I hope so. The enviro hasn't kicked on yet, that's a good sign.
Breena : Maybe, maybe it will be for real this time.
[Deep mechanical sounds came from below, followed by a giant "whoosh" as the SP-20's top rolled open]
Together they climbed out and stepped down to the floor.
Together they walked slowly to the front of the cave, atrophied muscles trying to remember.
Just like three years ago. And just like six years ago.
Evyn : It IS different this time Bree ! The sun . . the sun is shining !
Breena : And there's no more firestorms ! It's quiet, and peaceful, and . . . nice !
(Running out into the sunlight, smelling the fresh air, the grass, the flowers, the trees; they were stricken with sensory overload.)
Breena : Is it really real, Evyn ? Is it real ?
(But before Evyn could reply his skin began to smoke, and then burn.)
(Breena screamed. Her arms and hands now smoking too.)
Breena :" I thought it was over. I thought, . . I thought the world was real again !"
Deep inside the cave the SP-20 (B) came to life, its enviro signal active now. It read "Warning" !
