            The TV feed came through on the ADD monitor, and the crowded Atrium fell utterly silent.

For once Cutter and Lester had been united in their fight to prevent the inevitable, but they had failed. Their expressions now said far more than their last heated exchange. Abby could sense the tension in the room. The anticipation. The fear. Even Connor was unusually still. Abby reached across and squeezed his hand.

            Nobody spoke as the barely credulous newsreader made the official announcement.

            Yesterday they had been part of the Earth’s biggest secret. Tomorrow they would wake up in a new world.
