It’s the first time in decades that the thought even dares to cross Last Man’s mind. He should never have told Feebz about it.

“Just one step at a time, Boss,” she says, the line in her one eye rising and falling in gentle waves that do little to calm his nerves.

But he takes his first step anyway. And a few more brave ones away from home. Stubborn mind focused on seeing that one bud—Earth’s first in a century.

The bud shone in the sunlight, a breath of life in a barren land.

It is worth every sweltering step.

*Inspired by the prompt fearless fantasies  from The Daily Post.
