Transmission from Max:
Hello world! It has been like 5...maybe 6 years since the devastating asteroid crash that submerged most the world's major cities.
At this point you maybe be wondering where are you guys? Where is that big Maximum Ride that is fabled to rescue humanity?
Well there is only one of me, and a million people in the world.
We are safe on a remote island in the Pacific. Fang and the rest of the Flock are alive too. It's getting lonely on the island. I miss the chatter and bustling of the city.
Well enough about me. If there are any survivors, please try to contact us. We will try our best to find you.
This is broadcasting on all known modes of communication.

“You sure you’re all right?” she insisted.
“Yes, I’m fine,” I snapped back.
I tried to remain optimistic
