•Ishan Project: 176/189•
Day 3 of 10 for the Recap of the Ishan Project’s first 6 months.
A SURRENDER TO THE DARK SLEEP
The Dark Sleep spanned over 1200 years starting in 774 C.E. to 1988 C.E. This was a time when the Ishan were put to sleep mysteriously by means of a woman named Chûndra. That mysterious means also wiped mankind’s memory of the Ishan. Thus, the Ishan as a people were forgotten and wiped from mankind’s history. Unbeknownst to Chûndra, one of the Ishan escaped this mass catastrophe while hiding in a salt marsh. He was once a coward and tried to avoid conflict. Little did he know that he put himself at the most pivotal part of it all. It was in his ability to reshape the Ishan’s legacy. He had to make a decision on whether to accept this responsibility or live alone in hiding while dooming his fellow brothers to a deathlike state in the Earth’s Crust.
