Picture this.


You’re at the Museum of the CSSS’s Extraordinary Evolutionary History (CSSS-EEH). You’re in the Hall of Execs right now. You walk your way through the hall: you see the 2021-2022 term, the 2022-2023 term, and then you stop at the 2023-2024 term. Your jaw drops and your gasp can be heard all the way in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico (it’s a real place, look it up).


A portrait is missing!

The frame has been taken away, and only its empty place remains with a plaque. The plaque reads β€˜Arya β€œArray” Faghihy.’ Apparently this person was the ADoE for that year.


You walk closer to the plaque. You examine it a bit more. And just when you want to turn away, your eyes notice something that sends shivers down your spine.


There’s an engraving. It’s very small, but you take a look nevertheless. You don’t know why, but you’re almost certain that a bald eagle engraved the message with its beak.


It reads β€œthe final message awaits.”


β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€”


You wake up. What the heck happened?


You check your watch, it’s 4:23 AM. You’re still in the museum and it's early morning. Arya’s portrait is back on the wall. You take out your phone and unlock it, and there it is (check Discord or Instagram to see it).


β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€” β€”


CSSS Board Games Night with Karaoke will be held this Friday, April 5th, 2024, from 05:00 PM - 08:30 PM @ TASC1 9204! 🎀


Farewell, friend. Best wishes and I hope to see you around! πŸ”₯


Yours truly,

Arya | ADoE @ CSSS
