Eclipse Of The Abyss

Their only hope lies in surviving the darkness that looms within the Abyss.

By Corey TurnerPublished 4 months ago 3 min read

In the beginning, there was only darkness. But then, a cosmic entity emerged from the void, hungry. It devoured everything in its path, consuming stars and planets alike.

But its insatiable hunger was not satisfied with mere matter. It craved something more, something deeper. And so, it turned its attention to the souls of the living.

It began to hunt them down, stalking them through the vastness of space and time. It would wait patiently, biding its time until the perfect moment to strike. The first to fall were the weak and the vulnerable, those who had lost their way and had no hope left.

The entity would descend upon them like a vulture, tearing their souls from their bodies and devouring them whole. But soon, it grew bolder. It began to target the strong and the brave, those who dared to stand up to it.

It relished the challenge, the thrill of the hunt. It would toy with its prey, taunting them with its power and its hunger. And yet, some refused to be cowed.

They fought back with all their might, using every weapon at their disposal. But it was all for naught. The entity was too powerful, too ancient.

It had seen the rise and fall of countless civilizations, and it knew all their secrets. And so, it continued to feast, growing stronger with each soul it consumed. It became a force of nature, a cosmic predator that could not be stopped.

It roamed the universe, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. But even as it devoured, it could not escape the emptiness inside. It longed for something more, something that would fill the void within.

And so, it continued to hunt, searching for the one soul that would satisfy its hunger. And then, one day, it found it. A soul so pure and so bright that it shone like a beacon in the darkness.

The entity descended upon it, ready to claim its prize. But as it reached out to devour the soul, something strange happened. The soul began to glow, and a blinding light filled the void.

The entity recoiled in shock, unable to comprehend what was happening. And then, it was gone. The entity was no more, consumed by the very thing it had sought to devour.

The soul had been its undoing, the one thing that could defeat it. And so, the universe was safe once more. But the memory of the ancient cosmic entity lingered on, a cautionary tale of the dangers that lurked in the darkness.

The inhabitants of the universe knew that they could never let their guard down completely. They had to remain vigilant and prepared for any potential threats that may arise. The memory of the ancient cosmic entity served as a reminder that there were still unknown dangers lurking in the vast expanse of space.

They continued to explore and discover new worlds, but always with a sense of caution and respect for the power of the universe. And so, the memory of the ancient cosmic entity lived on, a constant reminder of the fragility of their existence and the importance of protecting their home among the stars.

Despite their caution, the inhabitants of the universe were not immune to conflict and strife.

Wars broke out between different factions, each vying for control and power.

But even amid these struggles, the memory of the ancient cosmic entity served as a unifying force.

It reminded them that they were all part of something greater, that their desires and ambitions were insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

And so, they worked to find common ground and resolve their differences peacefully, knowing that the survival of their entire civilization depended on it.

The memory of the ancient cosmic entity continued to guide them, a beacon of hope and wisdom in a universe full of uncertainty.
