The edge of the world

A solitary man walked to the edge of the world.  Earth had been destroyed by an immense black cloud which had wiped out all life except for him. Behind was destruction, in front he saw nothing but pitch-black darkness.  He tentatively held out his hand and touched what felt like thick, rich velvet.  As he ran his fingers over the softness the darkness split open and suddenly parted.  A beaming light shone through sending particles of sunshine over his body.  The light intensified and he realised that what he thought was sunlight was actually a loathsome alien from outer space.
