PRELUDE: ALAN, NOAH, ZACH AND RYAN
Near Jupiter effectively, the small compartment was severed from the main vessel and the lone capsule drifted on its own to unknown space. Realizing this state of affairs, the children gave way to panic and feared all was lost. But Ryan, with faith-filled words, reassured them and they were strengthened to face their predicament courageously.
Noah: “At least we’ve seen space and we all agreed to accept the consequences of our action.”
Alan: “This is epic. We’re living our dreams presently. I don’t know about you guys, but this is the best end for me. I’ve reached where I’ve always wanted to be.”

They remained in that position for a few seconds. As they savoured the uniqueness of that hour, a bright light flashed from a distance and moved gradually towards them. They remained silent and pressed each other’s hands tight as they gazed at the approaching brightness. When it caught them, they were overwhelmed by its luminosity and driven into oblivion…
The unpleasant sensation of water splashed on the face of a sleeper woke them out of coma. They got up and realized that their space overalls were gone and they were in their normal clothes. When they stood up, they found themselves in a beautiful large field with magnificent scenery at the background. They knew it wasn’t Earth yet something still looked familiar. They were awestruck when they turned around to see that the one standing behind them was actually…
