I was just a baby when it happened. I didn't know the panic that had swept over the world that day. A large sphere, about half the size of the moon, was discovered traveling through space and it was coming straight for Earth. There wasn't a soul on this planet that doubted the end of the world was on its way. But as it approached, it suddenly slowed, until it merely stopped and orbited around our terrified planet. People scrambled to figure out what to do next, but they ran out of time. Exactly one day after it had arrived, that strange orb in space simply vanished, leaving everyone on Earth baffled. It remained a mystery for decades.
Then, one fateful day, the leaders of the world synchronized a global address. They had come from that mysterious object in the sky more than twenty-five years ago and their numbers were spread across the lands, living and looking like anyone else. Since before the announcement, they had occupied nearly every top corporate, government, and military office throughout the world. They were the Merus and they had total power. Humans were now obsolete.
While some of us ran and hid, the rest went to war. But facing the Merus was like nothing we could have imagined. They could do things… things that could have only been conjured up from the depths of fiction. So even though we outnumbered the Merus five to one, it didn't take them long to execute a full occupation of the planet. After two years of all out war, many of us had given up hope.
