The link to the full story. Oh my God. The story is rich in sci fi and cyberpunk. Amazing. I’m getting somewhere.
I walked down stairs dressed in my lavender uniform and badge on right breast pocket. My father was at the kitchen table with a virtual room headset on in a meeting. My mother and older sisters were on their devices moderatoring and watching video streaming footage of company’s workers at the office.
The house maid was already clearing away their nutrition bars and milkshake breakfast shakes. I grabbed up two bars and a bottled shake and headed for the door. Flowers opened the door for me.
I turned back to them. “I’m off.” I said.
They waved at me in unison and went back to their jobs. I headed out with Flowers following me. I walked out of the condo into the hallway and took the stairs down to the bottom floor. Flowers followed silently.
I got outside the sunlight had barely risen above the grey and brown towers of the city. On the grey Sky-ways above my head cruisers flew by like birds twisting and turning with ease on the curvy roads.
I sighed and looked away and started down the stairs out of the gate. Flowers followed silently singing that song I liked softly as we flowed in to the herd of workers that had to work outside their apartments for Empiral marks.
Fucking A. Damn I’m loving the world building. Did you hear that sound it’s the sound of a fucking level up boost.
Here’s a link to the full story… This shit reads wonderfully well.
I woke up to my alarm going off reminding me I had to get to work and after that I had training school for my lifetime service at temple. My headache hurt at the thought of all the things I wouldn’t get to experience.
I wouldn’t get to kiss a boy. I wouldn’t get pregnant. I would never hold a child of my own. I was going to be a fucking virgin forever serving a goddess that didn’t give a damn about me. I had already been stamped with the symbol of the goddess on my right hand. It was a circle with blue ink heart in the center.
My conscripted service would begin in three weeks to the temple. I sighed when I heard an alarm on my stream pad.
I got up walked over to my work station and picked up the tablet. “Open message.”
I stared and was frozen in shock. I had been sent a short message by *Bill-smokeMan. Oh. Here’s the list 1. Buy a ride 2. Do something wild in it. 3. Get a cyborg to hot wire for realm travel. 4. Get fitted for cybernetic link in index finger. 5. Get some exercise. 6. Start smoking. 7. Drive out of realm. Get on item 1 today. Remember it’s on you bro.
What hell does bro mean on his homeworld?
Damn was this so….real. this was real. Bill was real. If he was real then. Then. There was a chance this stupid list. This weird list could be my ticket off this world and out of conscription service. This was my chance.
No. No. This was just some stupid game that-
“Alex. Alex. You will be late for your job and don’t forget your honorable service is today.” Flowers said gentle. She was my personal maid/guard for my service. She had been hired by my family two days ago.
I heard the door open. She came in bring in a sweet scent of chocolate rainbow. My favorite chocolate bar. She slipped in to my free hand.
“Hmm. That’s a interesting list is it your last ride list?” She asked and then turned to go to bathroom.
This shit is good….hands down I’m digging the Wettpad app and functions. Great app.
I growned and woke to the sight of Scott and Air staring down at me in concern. I felt comfortable laying in a nice bed. I felt right but I also felt her trying to track me.
I waved them away as I rolled out of bed to the side and looked around. We were in the tower. I shook my head.
“She’s still out there. Tracking me I can’t stay here. I have to-“
“We aren’t in Cyberpunk’s dream world.” Air spoke quickly. “We’re in my tower. “
I nodded. “Your tower is in Cyberpunk’s dream realm. That’s why-“
“‘-Oh no. We’re no longer in my brother’s realm. I can move my tower around. I have no realm of my own. So I move around as does my tower.”
I stared at her. “What’s the beef between you and my mother.” I asked.
Air pursed her lips tightly. “We were friends once. We came into being on a world called Mars, in a city named Gods play land. Once I learned how to travel the realms I taught her but she was comfort in her position there at the time. I left her on Mars while traveled the realms.”
I nodded. “She thinks you and the elders as she calls them are Gods. She must have enjoyed being worshipped by my kind. Is she mother though?”
Air nodded stiffly. “Bill. We’re not gods. We were all made from the same elements as mortals but we’re different and came to be differently. Mara can’t accept that fully she can die just as any mortal man or woman. My brother and his consort are doing battle with them as we speak. I do not how it will-“
“-She’ll worm her way out. She survived my home world being destroyed she’ll escape the battle in some way. How many humans have you changed?”
Air frowned shaking her head. “I didn’t change you.”
“You created me though, how?”
Air frowned again shaking her head. “Mara is limited because she does not embrace the truth of what she is and can never be. She believes a lie. I embraced that truth centuries ago. I can create and bring things into being. Mara is a creator of death. She can give birth but not life. You were her last attempt at that.”
I frowned getting a strange feeling I knew what she was dancing around saying. “Was I born still born?”
Air grimanced. “You would have been but sense I created you before your birth by breathing my element into you then you are what I created you to be. I am not the only dragon knowledgeable enough to do so.”
I shook my head. “I don’t understand why she would attempt something so stupid. For what reason?”
Air stared at me. “To raise an army of mortal slaves to worship her as their goddess mother.”
“Holy shit. The bitch is nuts.” Scott voicing my own thoughts.
Air nodded. “Yes. She is quite a sad creature. But, she also has still a few miss guided children out in the realms I have yet to reach.”
I got up and looked out the window into the endless portals to realms.
“Is there another reason beyond being a nice lady that you breath life into her dead children?’
“Bill.” Scott said. “Whst are you-“
“It’s fine.” Air interrupted. Yes there is a reason. A very big reason. Her children the ones I don’t save. Sometimes are saved or created into beings of dangerous problems that start galactic wars or burn whole planets they become annoyances for the elders. When that happens or if there are signs of it happening in those worlds a judgement is made and a world is sentenced to death.”
I nodded to turning to face Air. “Your an elder, right?”
Air shrugged. “In part. I am, the youngest and lowest in power and I rival no one in power or wisdom. I speak with the head elder over us all. I offer advice and try to make plans to rescue those I can. I try. I don’t always succeed but for you. I tried really hard this time.”
“I like you and in a strange twisted way. Mara likes you a lot though it may not seem that way.” Air said gentle.
“Where we headed?” I asked.
Air smiled. “To another another rescue mission.” She said.
“Can we help?” Scott spoke up for the both of us.
Air looked between the two of us. “That isn’t necessary. This is your home now or I can take you to any-“
I held up a hand. “I think you do need a little help. Unless you think it beneath you to ask for help from mortals.”
Air smiled her lips shaking. “I would be honored to have your help and sense you two are inclined to be so helpful. I want to give you both with something.”
“Two. What about Wolf.” I asked
Scott made a face. “He met a girl so he opted out of the fun.” She said.
I shrugged. “That’s alright. I understand. What’s this gift?!”
Air giggled. “Follow me.” She said whimsically dancing out of the room.
Scott laughed and quickly took my hand and led me after Air. I smiled liking the feel of her. We walked out into another large spacious room. We stopped short and stared at the purple and black beautiful crusier.
Air smiled . “What do you think? I ordered it from my little brother. He makes such nice realm flyers.”
