In the final days of earth it was the children who were the salvation of everyone…
All around was destruction. I tried to make sense of the world I lived in. How had it come to be that we allowed it to come to this? Didn’t we know what we were doing? The ancient stories told of the coming of special children who would save all of mankind. It clearly described how they would save humanity and the planet. Then why was there so much death? Why was the planet still in chaos? Why had we failed?
Around 150 years ago mankind had reached a turning point. Weapons that could destroy the world a hundred times over had been created. There seemed no end to the ways mankind had devised to destroy itself. It was at this point that God decided to take matters into His own hands. He introduced a new evolution of mankind designed to pull it back from the brink of destruction.
Female angels were sent to procreate with male humans. Their offspring were always female. Traditionally the more nurturing gender. They were born with certain angelic powers to help accomplish their goals.
But the human condition has its flaws. And when you mix angelic devotion and human ego sometimes you get self-righteous indignation. The Sisterhood, born to help humanity pull itself back from the brink of destroying itself, were suppose to help change mankind into a more peaceful species.
And so the era of the Sisterhood took a more sinister turn. The half human half angelic daughters now ruled instead of helped. The Sisterhood believed they were still helping mankind. By ruling them instead of helping them they controlled how mankind would evolve.
But it wasn’t what God had intended. And so, in His infinite wisdom, He who watched from afar decided the Sisterhood needed to be stopped. This time He commanded male angels to descend and lie with female humans. Their only male children had the task of eliminating the Sisterhood, allowing mankind to be free of their control.
The Brotherhood possessed the gifts necessary to destroy the Sisterhood. At first the Sisterhood had no idea what the Brotherhood had been sent to do. By the time they figured out the Brotherhood’s purpose it was too late. The Brotherhood had grown up and became a fighting force the Sisterhood could not easily defeat. A war began that had the Sisterhood fighting to stay alive while the Brotherhood did everything in their power destroy them. Mankind became caught in the middle.
Humans became the fodder for both sides. Sisters surrounded themselves with loyal humans to protect themselves from Brother attacks. Brothers killed humans that helped Sisters. The world was thrown into a chaos it didn’t know how to remove itself from. All mankind could do was try to stay out of the way and stay alive.
And through it all our Divine Creator watched to see how this war would end. Religion, as it once was, no longer existed. Humans now collectively prayed to a god they hoped would end the war and release them from both sides. Prayers that went unanswered. We were all left to fend as best we could for ourselves. God, it seemed, had decided to watch and wait, to see who won the battle for humanity, the planet, and sometimes it seemed, our very souls.
