Peculiarity: Afrofuturist fiction by Austine Osas

Some part of humanity has always looked to the stars for patterns, answers and ways to go about their affairs.

Science has posited, it’s the death of a planet, it’s people or other extraterrestrial beings and life forms.

How ironic.

For me…us, it has a far higher and grander meaning.

We see it as a way to circumvent the clash of two worlds.

To avoid the destruction of one, the other or both.

Our entire existence is based on maintaining this balance.

We live in the outerworld.

We are aware of earth and its dwellers, but we don’t try to contact or communicate with it directly or indirectly.

We just read the stars with continuous cautious optimism.
