The year is AR-235.
A stands for “after” but I don’t know what R stands for; nobody does.
History books talk about how people used to count the year in Gregorian calendar. We stopped doing so in 3199. On December 31, 3199, Do you believe in God? was asked to every person on Earth and they shot everyone who said no in the head. Year 3200 never came; AR-01 did.
Today, I’m faced with a double-barelled shotgun and the same question that wiped out 40% of world population 236 years ago.
My lips tremble but my voice is resolute.
