Before i start babbling on and on about the weird events that led to the wars and even what happens after the fall of humanity it might best to start at the very very beginning, when we finally translated the legendary Easter Island tablet. Yes I believe that is the best starting point, maybe that will serve as a reminder to the later generations that hopefully find this journal. If something has been untranslated for thousands of years, keep it that way, somethings are just far better left alone. I am not kidding, if it was not translated or the puzzle solved when it was found the first time, leave it alone…
In early 2015 we found some caves deep in the Bermuda Triangle, the dives were beautiful, the fish swam by us their eyes looking at us with the curiosity of a young child. then they swam away, their minds easily distracted by the thought for food spurred their day on.Their little bodies faded into the crystal blue waters, stopping us in our diving. My dive companion thumps me on the back of the head reminding me to keep diving down into the first caves, which open their mouths and swallow us in a darkness impenetrable by the light from above the cave entrance. Our lights come on and in our goggle displays the map shows up guiding us to our first big location, the dive site we discovered through an accidental testing of Navy echolocation equipment. As we surface and remove all our equipment, my partner in crime smiles at me as the wonder of the cave comes to life around us. The stalactites are deep green from copper dripping down into them, as the water stills it forms a perfect reflection, almost awing us as the mirror formed in front of us, our lights showing us around. The peace was only enjoyed shortly as a monster far older than we realized, possibly isolated here by some accidental twist of fate from another dimension.
"Albert bud, do you hear a growling, I know we know that scanned for lifeforms the first time and it showed nothing," Lucas says to me, his deep blue eyes showing a depth of fear I have never seen. "Not quite sure dude, there is a faint noise to my right but I think it is just my air tank. You know how loud it can be." I respond back hoping to see his almost always cheery disposition come back. It does not and my heart beats quick, as I hear a phenomenally loud thump behind me. I jump to Lucas’ arms, he catches me as we both see something big and scaly eyeing us up as some gourmet dinner. The scariest part though is it already cleared away some of the equipment and its eyes were already scanning possible escape routes, far more intelligent than any predator we have on the surface.
Instead of rushing us… it smiles and…..
