The year is 3197.
Cindy Anna-Jones had devoted her life to uncovering the mysteries of the past.
But one mystery had always evaded her. Everyone said it was just a myth. She was determined to find the truth.
She’d recently stumbled upon
something called “The Internet”. It seemed to have been abandoned since the
early 22nd century, when humankind invented Taste-o-vision.
Hidden amongst cat videos,
selfies, and a gif of someone blinking, Cindy discovered something unlike
anything she’d ever seen before.
The innocent website.
“innocent, I know that name,” she
whispered to herself. “Didn’t they save the world from the first zombie
apocalypse? And then accidentally cause another one?”
“Yes,” replied her Smart Cat,
Alexion, before returning to licking himself.
Cindy kept digging. Drink
recipes. Joke Generators. The original yellow-prints for the world’s very first
wee-ometer… The website was a treasure trove of strangeness.
And, deep in the depths, laid a
blog. It featured everything from innocent’s foundation work, to a rather
guilty apology for the whole second zombie outbreak thing.
She scrolled back further,
further, until she was over 1100 years into the past. And then, she found it.
Not just any gap. The gap.
The gap the legends had whispered
about. The gap where the innocent blog just…stopped. It was right where the legends had said it would be, between July
2017 and January 2018. Then it restarted as if nothing had happened.
The only hint to what once might
have been was January’s first entry. It was simply titled “Has anyone seen our
last five blog posts?”
This was it. This was the proof
that Cindy had been searching for all this time. The Legend Of The Lost Blog
Posts was true. Five blog posts had been
lost from time and forgotten about like a password you had literally just created.
What had happened to the blog
What secrets did they contain?
Why were they lost?
Or were they never actually
written at all? It’s a mystery.
