“Although it seems impossible, Mitty somehow got the smallpox virus. Mitty had caused the virus to spread, killing many people in New York City and beyond. Chaos erupted because nobody was alive to run anything. Only few survived the virus because of a genetic mutations, including Mitty. Different groups of survivors fought each other for supplies and to stay alive. The last of the survivors died, humans went extinct, and Earth was ready for a new species to rule.”
My new ending is different from the original ending because in the real book, Mitty doesn’t actually have the virus, and he just makes up symptoms he “has.” In my ending, Mitty actually does have smallpox, but is immune (he is a carrier). The virus spreads and kills many people, practically the whole world, and the other immune people need supplies to survive and replenish their species, but they won’t agree. They fight for survival and the survivors of the survivors try to live, but without the others, they cannot work alone and end up dying. Homo Sapiens are now extinct, and I say that Earth is ready for a new species to “rule” because humans seem to have control over all the other animals. So the main differences are he does have smallpox, New York gets the virus, and humans go extinct unlike his, which is opposite.
