Davinia and Leela spent years researching, digging through forgotten archives, searching for clues. Their mission was to locate priceless treasures. Their current site called White City lay at the tip of a once-massive inland basin. A Lake evaporated by the Great Cataclysm.

Discoveries in White City suggested that their ancestors once lived alone, in large spaces within larger cities. The theory sparked heated debates among their colleagues.

“Leela, you’ve got to see this,” Davinia said as she unearthed a plastic box and pried open the lid. Inside, were layers of well-preserved ancient photos.

“They were grey.”

“They looked like us.”


Keep on writing.

  1. What an excellent take on the prompt, Jo!
    Grey people, wearing a variety of black, white and grey clothing in a colourless world… I imagine any pictures of trees must have truly confused these silly scientists!

  2. Well. THAT certainly provoked a lot of interesting thoughts and comments!I’ll be thinking about this one for a while. Intriguing statement, “They look like us!” Why are they surprised? How many eons of time
    have passed since the Great Cataclysm?
