Children Of the Falls

The world’s destruction is at hand. Natural disasters explode all over its surface; tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes. It would come to be known in history as the week of “Great Destruction.”

In the next few weeks, I’m going to bring forth to you a special story, I’ve created just for this Blog. For five years I have been blocked, and unable to write a word, much less a sentence, but recently I have found the block is now removed, and I have started on another novel, and decided to celebrate by sharing this story with you.  Keep up to Date with me. Another installment will follow within the next two weeks. This is the prologue. Chapter I is with my editor. Chapter Two is at the draft stage. ENJOY!

Prologue

The world’s destruction is at hand. Natural disasters explode all over its surface; tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes. It would come to be known in history as the week of “Great Destruction.” Ships Sank. Planes Crashed. Automobiles were thrown about like rag dolls. Whirl winds tore Houses off their foundations, and whipped them around with other debris. Angrily, Mother Nature killed human and animal without prejudice. Death tolls were recorded as the highest in human history. Property and land became unlivable. Volcanoes and earthquakes reformed the landscape.

Areas were left desolate and uninhabitable to survivors, while others were thrown back to prehistoric eras. Eventually, survivors separated into clans, becoming two distinct Races; Land Dwellers and Sea Dwellers; both with different ideals, and different ways of life. They scavenged for food, and searched for shelter. Most Land Dwellers settled in the caves that were naturally formed in the protruding rocks raised by the earthquakes and Volcanoes, while Sea Dwellers moved to the caves behind Waterfalls, and those formed underwater by the same.

Three generations of these clans worked hard to keep their world peaceful, and kept to their own ways of life. However populations grew, and Greed arose in the few that felt they should be in control of all the living spaces, and absolute power became a sickness among the Land Dwellers, while the Sea Dwellers fought hard to keep their peaceful ways, but each day that passed it was proving to become more difficult.

To make it even more difficult, a new race was forming in the desolate wastelands where wild things had kept hidden since the disasters. Banishing lawbreakers to the wasteland had become common place in both clans. However after 150 years, a new clan was forming, and they had to fight for everything to stay alive. They have decided that they deserved restitution, and they would take what was not given to them willingly. War was imminent and the only way to defeat the enemy would be to join the forces of both clans to fight the “Wild Ones” and that it would be their similarities, not their differences that would make them strong.

In the midst of all the turmoil, love still found time to grow. Princess Inkya of the Sea Dwellers and Prince Makayo of the Land Dwellers grew up playing together in the woods, and as they blossomed into adults, their relationship took on a different more sensual relationship; they fell in love, and now she carries his child. Their choices are limited. They can do one of three things: Run to another territory beyond theirs, and try to build a life there, where nobody knows them. Make their relationship public to their parents, and hope that they will not be banished to the wasteland and forgotten about, or get married, and bring their people together to fight a common enemy, “The Wild Ones”. Either way they choose, they must have a satisfactory end for their child’s sake, and the future of the people they love.
