‘The Pod’ By PK Rankin

In a single pod on a remote planet there are eight individuals living in one of one hundred levels of that pod. Living and training each day in preparation for what they have been told is the unveiling whereupon they will leave the pod and exercise all of their education and training to repopulate and reconstruct their world. Their leader begins to experience anxiety and dreams that seem to tell him there is a problem. His dreams become a race against time as he struggles to convince himself and his team that they must wait and violate all they have learned to save themselves. Reason isn’t always the answer.
