I'm assuming this is a display in a museum somewhere. If it's not, pm me and I'll double your score.

They didn't remember much. Most of it was a run of confusion, and terror, and noise. He remembered only that he believed it to be the end.

So when his eyes opened slowly, from out of a dream, a dream where he was being violently tossed about by some force he could not see, he found himself gazing into her eyes. She'd been shaking him. Trying desperately to wake him.

He was awake now, and his first thought was how hot he felt. Burning up. A fever? No, not a fever, for now his eyes were looking about, beyond the woman's face, all around him, and he saw flames. Suddenly, he was fully alert and instinct took over. He scrambled to his feet and the woman suddenly burst into tears, with a look of utter relief on her face. She grabbed his arm and pulled him desperately away, towards a door. A door that showed...

Light! There was light there. Shining through the thickening smoke and ash and heat. They stumbled madly for it, and broke through just as a large pillar of steel came crashing down to block that entry for good.

They ran, awkwardly, stumbling, as far from the burning wreckage as they could. Wreckage that belonged to a massive interstellar cruise vessel, now engulfed in flames and destruction. They ran until they felt they were safe and tumbled to the ground, tumbled to the soil of whatever forsaken planet this might be. There they lay, panting, exhausted. There they wrapped each other in an embrace of survival and relief and comfort. There they slept.

He didn't know what woke him. The sounds maybe, unfamiliar, but familiar. Birds, but not like any birds he knew. Wind, rustling leaves and brush, this was familiar, but it was through air that was not like air he knew.

He woke up the woman beside him, and together they stood. Together they looked about at this alien world that was so like, yet unlike, their homeworld. Together they realized that they were the only ones left from the voyage, and that, perhaps, they were alone here. The only two of their kind. Together they realized that they would have to start anew in a new world. A new place. A new Eden.

They were terrified, but they were alive. Together they started on their journey.

Has a nice painterly feel to this, I could see it on the front of a fairy tale book.
