Singing along to Purple Rain, I accelerated to maximum speed. The inconspicuous purple brick wall dissolved as I broke through the portal. I slid onto the landing pad before the song ended. Welcome to Alia Terra, home sweet home.

I set the timer and pull the release launching the casket. The explosives detonate, and fireworks light up the dark of space.
I watch purple rain shower down on the red planet.
