“First the trees stopped singing.

Then they stopped breathing.

The colour left.

Then the light.

Then nothing.

I’m the last generation that lived amongst the living."

The crew of the first research base on Pluto has lost contact with Earth. The world they left behind is dying. The birds no longer sing. Entire religions were formed around the last of the trees.

They sit waiting. Unable to leave the icy planet and unable to send for help.

Waiting to go home, but little is left for them there.

Waiting for someone to come save them.

Waiting. But what are they waiting for?
