What.Is.Happening?! Chapter 4

“Wow!” I breathed.
“Don’t get sentimental.” The girl warned.
“Why not?” I asked. She snorted.
“Why not? We’re in Atlantis. ANYTHING could happen. This isn’t a dream you know. We could get hurt.”
“Oh.” I said quietly. “By the way, what’s your name?” I asked.
“Serafina.” She answered.
“Wow. That’s a beautiful name.” I said. She cackled.
“There is nothing beautiful about me. There is nothing beautiful about Atlantis. It has become a terrible place.” She said.
“What happened?” I asked.
“Titan did.” She said bluntly. I waited for her to explain more, but she didn’t.
“ Care to tell me what you mean, Serafina? What are hiders? What are they hiding from? Who is Titan, and what did he do?” I ask. She takes a breath, and lets it out slowly. Then she starts talking, in a whisper so low I have to lean in to hear her.
Atlantis was once a fair, just, and happy city. Then our ancestors got the notion to break every rule mean to help us in the Bible. They got drunk, committed adultery, and countless other things that are disgusting and should never be brought up. So, naturally, God was angry with them. He was so angry, he sank the city with a flood. No one knows for sure what exactly happened after that. But here we are, under the ocean, breathing without help of tech. The people of Atlantis realized what terrible people they’d been, and changed their ways immediately. God let them live, since they were doing what was right and pleasing him again. But as a lesson and a reminder of what had happened, no one could walk on land again. She paused and took a breath. Atlantis was rebuilt, and became a just and right city again. But recently, our king died, of old age. His son Titan, took over the throne. We’d all heard about Jesus by now, and most of us had started believing in him. Titan didn’t. He has made it his mission to kill every Christian he can get his hands on. He is merciless, even to his own. The Christians who want to live hide. We are called the Hiders. Titan’s people are called the Seekers, or Titans. We know God will save us, but to ensure us even more, he has given us a prophecy that there will be a person who saves us from Titan. She stopped.
“What is the prophecy?” I prompted her.
“It is this,” she answered. “It includes John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him, shall not perish, but have eternal life. I shall send someone to help you, Before the anti-christ’s time, who will save your city from darkness. He will not know how he got there, and he will not always be himself. Yet when he calls upon me to help him, he shall succeed. The Titans will be overruled.
