In the not too distant future…
Stars twinkle silently high above the cloudless sky, blinking in and out from the depths of space. Down below, at stark contrast against the minimalist sky, a neon cityscape sprawls about as far as the human eye can see. Skyscrapers flash garish colors – yellow, blue, pink – to whore out their services, cars crawl along excruciatingly slowly on channels too narrow to contain them, and countless drones mill about plaguing whatever tiny air spaces they can find.
People? Hidden in the city’s tiny nooks and crannies, too small and too insignificant to spot from this distance.
On a terrace twenty-one floors up high above the landscape, the night is oddly calm. And cold.
“So, what did you call me here for?”
A clear voice calls out from the distance. A sweet sound, tinged with some slight annoyance.
It’s hard to blame her, though. The hour is late.
But it’s hard to find friends in this city, and there wasn’t another soul to rely on.
“Hear me out, I’ve something to tell you.”
- I’ll let the next person decide the protag’s name, the protag’s powers, and her friend’s name.
