The Final Departure




It’s the final departure.

The sun is finally setting and now they are embarking on a new journey to look for a new but unknown tomorrow.  While the last batch of “chosen” ones are  anxious to aboard the ship, a small group of privileged nobles are desperately but ineffectively trying to negotiate and bribe–concepts they never had to practice or get accustomed to until now–the gatekeepers to see another sunrise.  On the bridge, the mother is holding her son’s hand.  The father is trying his best to stand tall for his son even if the hope can’t be found.  Those who are left behind will have to conjure up their last drop of courage to face the night.
