Chon Lai is my name. Xen Lai is my brother. And with a little help from our friends, our family is responsible for the greatest accomplishment in human history. Wattpad, this is our story.
  
Mankind is on a collision course with the apocalypse.  According to Xen Lai, China's Environment Secretary, the imminent mega storm will decimate civilisation as we know it.
      Xen plans to unveil his final solution at the next climate summit.  Unfortunately, his father dies before the presentation, and Xen spirals into a world of depression, drugs, and sexual deviance.  Scandal soon follows, and to make matters worse, the global hate campaign is led by none other than World Affairs Correspondent, Chon Lai - Xen's younger brother.
    Amid the controversy, Xen finally gives Chon an ultimatum.  Dismiss him and The Solution for good.  Or, fulfil their family's destiny, amongst the stars...

@LadeeAtlas - Set in a Chinese future, it's 'Ready Player One' meets 'Interstellar'!

Such great advice for life in general! I need to hear this too!

Wonderful opening! Sets the dynamic between the brothers and the love for their father, a central conflict for both.  This is brilliant stuff!

I'm guessing fuqin means something like grandfather? I really like the framing scene, it gives the story an introspective tone that seems to promise momentous events are coming. Combined with what is mentioned in the summary, their fuqin's words sound like ironic foreshadowing.

This type of sit down moment makes me think he's going to die.

Good opening. I like the use of a simple memory to kick this story off. You have a comfortable mannerism in your writing that draws the reader in. Nice work.
