‘The Irony of Everything’ By Leah Reise

It’s the last day the Earth will exist, for a huge asteroid nears like another sun in the sky to erase the beautiful marble of a planet. John awaits his death on an old tree swing contemplating his existential end, his father celebrating the last night of everything with the townspeople below the hill. John is ready to die, making his peace with the universe he will return to; that is until Sage, his long lost love, returns in the last moments of their life.
