The great earthquake of 2022 AD split the mountain as if a cake had been cut in half. The deep and impenetrable gorge became the headquarters of the terrorists who were on the run from concerted action of many countries.

This was followed by a spurt of disruptive activities across the globe in 2030s. All technology failed to locate the terrorist base.

On April 13, 2036, the asteroid ‘Apophis’ struck the cleaved mountain. Surprisingly only one half of the mountain was pulverized. This was the half that sheltered the terrorists.

Today, in 2040 tourists swarm it for terror-memorabilia.

  1. It sounds like that place is marked on Nature’s map for distruction. I’m surprised the police didn’t move in and seal that place off as a crime scene. Maybe it was for a while. Good creative sci-fi, Yarnspinnerr. Well done. 🙂 — Suzane

  2. “Terror memorabilia” – interesting concept – shows us humans will collect just about anything for novelty. Wish all items of terrorism becomes useless memorabilia. Good one.

I love arguments
