Escape from Home: Prologue by Jordan, Alice Buffet Middle School

Amongst a planet far away in the stars, after a devastating war, treaties and negotiations were being made to avoid such bloodshed ever again. Sphey’s population had been cut down by an estimated 90% after the mass havoc wreaked upon it. It’s once beautiful falls ran red with blood, and where there were once beautiful gardens now lay smoking ruins.
