“Look upon what you have wrought,” the woman said, her face hidden behind shining steel. “This is your legacy.”

Jared bent down to see a photograph of a girl and her mother, trodden underfoot and coated in dust. He wondered if there was anyone left.

“I never wanted this,” he said.

“You did not care before you beheld it with your own eyes.”

“I can change,” Jared said. “Please. Take me back. I can change!”

The woman said nothing.

Flocks of steel sweep the skies, birds of prey with sharp eyes and sharper claws.

The hooded figures stop in the shadow of an archway, letting their hunters fly overhead, careful not to make the slightest movement.

The Mechanism has always been there.

It was there when the first peoples arrived, huddling in the dark, their fires burning bright amongst the white expanse of ice and the deep shadows of old trees.

It was there when the new settlers came, faces pale and hard, hearts full of gold, guns full of lead and powder, ready to cleanse and claim by blood and fire.

It was there when they cleared the trees and raised the new houses: suburban homes, nestled together like cells in honeycomb.

And today…

Today the great hand jerks to life.

The Mechanism moves.
