Chapter 1

Skytopia

Skytopia was having a morbid day. Leaders from the West realm and East realm ( two of the richest and influential regions of Skytopia) had gathered at the iconic “El Central” for the first time after they had signed the interplanetary exploration pact many moons ago. The East had long warned of the dangers of their acts , but the West had never heeded to these warnings. The West’s economy was built on the interplanetary taxes and had more to lose than the East. Skytopia was a few 1000 miles above Earth ( Earth was Skytopia’s biggest tax contributor ). The air here used to be much cleaner but the West’s greed had made it unbearable today. They were gathered to sign the ” Stop Human Planting” pact. The East went on to make its case and showcased a video. How it all started. Shortly after the interplanetary exploration pact , the West had discovered the Earth and had started to plant human saplings there. They made these humans work , produce more things and money and took 20% of it all as taxes. Although the humans started developing minds of their own and started destroying lands and waters of the Earth , the West did not really care as their tax money from the Earth got bigger and bigger. They fuelled this by planting more and more human saplings. All looked good until the humans started dying. The humans were weak creatures ( genetically they were saplings created by mutating skytopian dogs and whales) . They could potentially learn to survive both on land and water , but they only lived upto a 100 years. The death of the first batch of humans released the toxic human spirits which eventually reached skytopia. The Skytopian air had tasted its first ever toxic waste and the air would never be the same again. The death rate of the humans started to raise exponentially ( disasters and epidemics ravaged the Earth , in part caused by the action of the humans ) and this raised the causticity of the Skytopian air to alarming levels. The human spirits had caused so much damage to the air in Skytopia that it was banned to stay outdoors for more than 5 minutes continiously. The West was forced to sign the pact.El Central had witnessed another iconic moment. The West agreed to bring down the human planting to zero in the next 5 years. Will they stick to the pact? Time will tell…
