Science Fiction // Novella --- This is how the world ends. Not with a bang, or a nuclear war, or a plague, or even Yellowstone erupting. No, it ends with the Earth's inner sun burping massive amounts of radiation into our atmosphere. So where does that leave the few of us who are still alive? --- 3rd place winner in @TheCRYPTIC_ 's Herculean ♥ Challenge 1: Dark Futures "The year is 2301. Governments have been disbanded. Towns have been evacuated and abandoned. Survivors do what must be done to live. Some sacrifice for their families, while others turn on their fellow man. Food is scarce. Days are hot. Nights are cold. Routine is all that gets people by through the day. But then one day that all changes. Tell us what happens in your own words."
