Where were you? #1

“Where were you when they told you the moonlanding wasn’t real?”

I was in highschool. There had been an announcement. A public declaration that all state secrets should be revealed. We never thought they would actually do it.

Our history teacher entered our class to announce we had to move to the cafeteria, the only room big enough to hold all the students. He seemed a bit panicked. We all felt a bit nervous. When everyone had entered and was seated they rolled in a television and turned it on.

For the next three hours everything we thought was true crumbled before our eyes. The history teacher stared at his feet. Perhaps he was selfishly thinking he’d lose his job. Many would lose their jobs. Medicine, Science, Astronomy, Astrology,… Everything was rewritten in one afternoon.

Presidents, Kings, Muftis, Popes, Ministers and Secretaries, all claimed it was for the better. The lies had become too much. We had to be strong now they said.

As a final secret their reasons were revealed. We were not alone. We were not safe. They were coming.

  1. Cool stuff, good take-off on history, but you really need to continue this and explain who “they” are, because I am dying to know.

  2. asdfghjkl That was lovely. More please?

  3. I, too, would like to know who ‘they’ are. and I like how you worded it as if it was real (you had me going for a moment that it was real, until ‘they’ showed up). My high school math teacher still doesn’t believe that we went to the moon. This was fun. 🙂

  4. I love alternative history. Good stuff. 😀
