Prologue

"Mine!" Steve announced as he grew nearer to the tree. "You don't deserve it," Jeff blurted out in response. It was only the fourth day since the drought brought the world upon itself and now everyone was starting to realize the water promised, that should of came from the government yesterday, was far from reality. Not every one knew how to get water, but Steve did and his competition was Jeff. Were there is trees there's water, as all others were dying but somehow this one managed to live, the cause was water. Now one tree could live with water but what Steve would find out, they could live with a whole lot more.

"Ahhhhhhhhh," Steve let out a jolting scream to surprise his enemy but Jeff was already there, taking swing after swing of his axe cutting the tree. As it fell so did Steve, with the ground unstable he sunk right through leaving no trail behind, as Jeff scurried off with his prized possession that would soon be taken from him, Steve was in a different circumstance. The fall had knocked him out for a few seconds but when he regained conciseness he was unable to take in everything at once. He was in an underground city with dim lights and shining corridors made of pure iron, untouched by the world above, out off the warfare, it was an oasis.

A light shined down on him, "who are you!" a voice announced. "This story is escalating quickly," Steve murmured. "I'm Steve" Steve said in response to the voice, "just a desperate human" he continued not wanting the voice to misunderstand him. "What brings you here" the voice shouted back, determined to get an answer. Steve had to think about all he had been through and then responded "A tree," all-tho it was not the best answer it was true. Some hushed mumbling around the city suggest that it did not want Steve there but then, "hey!" Came a voice, "I'm Alex," it was Alex, but you probably already guessed that. "Are you new here? Are you alone? How old are you? want to be friends?" Forever. This girl could go on until the sun blew up and past, so rather than bore you with the unnecessary talk between Steve and Alex I'm sure you're wondering what ever happened to Jeff.

Bang! A solo gun shot, that's all it takes to bring someone to their knees or in Jeff's case, to their face. "What in the world!" Screamed Jeff's wife, she was outside on the balcony when her husband had been struck. Two masked men on horses rode up to Jeff, kicked him hard in the ribs, and stole the tree. No-one knows what happened to Jeff but his dog and even if we could talk to dogs he's been dead ever since he tried casing a catfish. But only the cat knows that story. His wife today just sits and weeps sometimes but mainly enjoys hanging out with a good book in one hand and a bottle of wine in the other. Once again we must go to a place below he surface where a man and a woman are finished taking.

"Come on" Alex pulled on Steve's arm, "I want you to meet the rest of the crew." A hidden door in the wall reveled a long flight of stairs up to a control room, Steve could not see this room but he knew it was their because on the back of the door it said "CONTROL ROOM, KEEP OUT" and he was sure that's where they were going. As they reached the last stair five men and two woman came into view. "This is Henry..." Alex induced every one in the room until she turned to him and said "everybody, this is Steve. "He shook Every-ones hand saying "nice to meet you" being polite. Just then a loud buzzer went off "Lunch Time!" Henry communicated through a small round object laid out on the desk, as a flood of people scurried off to what was most likely the lunch room.
