Starting from Zero: The Next Genesis by Edwin Escolero
S0NG – LOG 02
Chilly winds rush against a makeshift tent in the middle of a desert at the dark of night. The tent’s walls flap open as the mighty wind howls in the desolate sand and the lone soul fights to keep the shelter intact. A notebook falls to the ground and a lamp illuminates the header which reads, “S0NG.” Taking hold of the cotton like canvas fabric S0NG fights the zephyr in a tug of war. Standing firm S0NG’s hands resist the frosty wind as it tries to tear the tent apart.
Daybreak sheds light upon a caved in tent that lay within the sandy terrain. Underneath S0NG sleeps after a night of battling a storm to keep the tent grounded. As the sun rises the air swelters which prompts him to get up and begin an inspection of the storm’s aftermath.
Walking through the barren land the inquisitive explorer runs into an archaic structure that remained hidden from sight. Patting away remnant sand from the old building S0NG comes across an inscription that he doesn’t recognize. Taking notes he transcribes the unfamiliar characters into his journal while making a quick sketch of what he sees. Finding a door S0NG manages to pry it open and cautiously enters to see what lies in the path ahead.
Taking a long flight of stairs that descend S0NG comes across what appears to be a center. Finding a detailed map the adventurer manages to pinpoint his location and discovers that there are many levels in the building. Gazing up at a glass ceiling S0NG gets a glimpse of a past that had been buried under the sands of time.
