I am not a hero, just a nerdy book worm, who discovers a message hidden in a dusty tome. Once I decipher the phrase “Suspended power,” the code breaks easily.
The prophecy brings me to Skógafoss and the 200-foot tall frozen waterfall on my planet’s darkest night. As I draw near, the humming grows louder.
Flipping on the 100,000 lumens flashlight. I heel the light into the frozen ground, and face the pulsating wall. Five steps and I lay my hands on the ice. I push extra hard. The door opens, and the revolution to save my cherished world begins.
Keep on writing.
