An apocryphal story centered about the UN Plaza, taking place very far into the future. If you like mystery and very intertwined plot, enjoy!
An 8 km wide asteroid was on a collision course with the Earth, and was to hit South Africa on the 9th of October, 2138. The asteroid was foreseen at too late of a time for any plans to be decided upon, as it was just under a fortnight before.
Decades ago, Scottish artist Frances Alessandra Meikel had sold a 7-foot-tall bronze sculpture to the United Nations Secretariat Building, which was of Igor, a Siberian Husky, and Jack, an Alaskan Malamute, colloquially named Humanity's Peacekeepers. It was erected in front of the building after the Russian-American agreement to dispose of all nuclear weapons and warheads for a better future for humanity. Every country around the world had signed said treaty and followed suit. Despite the good intentions and seemingly nonexistent negative consequences, it meant that no nuclear weapons were at disposal to destroy the asteroid and lessen the impact.
In spite of this, many people from around the world have went to the statue outside the building to pray for the safety of everyone and pay tribute, with offerings and messages. All of humanity had awaited for the dreadful day to arrive with mixed feelings, and as the people crossed off the ninth day of the month, the knell of humanity had deafeningly rung...
...but the life of two verdigris dogs had just begun.
