Part 2: Chapter 8: Friendly Conversations

Naren cleared her throat. "I was taken through a long hallway. The hallway had more flickering propaganda signs. Dazzlingly amounts of tech and happy people and bright colors filled my eyes, but I refused to be impressed. Xava had a sort of shield behind her, I guessed so I wouldn't hurt her. We arrived in…

Part 2: Chapter 6: Mission

Naren spoke. "I went on my first mission, and it was my first solo mission too. My job was to recover an info device dropped by their last agent. It had some data for their shields, and their existence had to be kept as secure as possible. I was going to be transported halfway there.…

Part 2: Chapter 5: Beginnings…

"When I was very young, I lived with the outcasts." My mother started saying, a semi-wistful look on her face. "It happened after the schism.

I had practically grew up in this place. Pearl looked up in shock. "Where are we?" She asked, groggily. She wasn't that great at time travel. This place was a huge relic from a few hundred years ago, but it…
