Scorched

 

 

After a solar flare scorched the Earth and incinerated the atmosphere, survivors dug deep beneath the surface, discovering a new means of life where none had ever lived. 

Spec is an ordinary 16 year old residing underground in the Hive, a modern day colony where he and 73 other human beings survive. 

Every day is the same for Spec. 

Wake up. 
Mine for clay and insects. 
Sleep. 

That’s why he has decided to venture outside of the colony with his best friend, Cotta. Spec plans on going where there are no ceilings and no walls, a place where there are no barriers. He plans on going to the mythical surface.
