The City: 077: Blanca

Leave a comment

Blanca directed the flow of digital traffic and felt a pang of regret for her decision to study Criminal Law over Medicine.  Usually, she loved her job, hunting down hackers in The City as well as the physical world was a thrilling puzzle.  But with the sudden set of crises today, everyone was working double shifts doing grunt work to keep up.  She wished she had drawn something a bit more interesting than traffic duty. She waved a blue sports car past, and heard a scream from a few blocks away.  She should have been careful what she wished for.

The City: 076: Phil

Leave a comment

Phil sat in traffic and waited.  The day had been a complete mess.  A river of red taillights spread out ahead of him, mirroring the color of the slowly sinking City Sun.  It was usually sunny, and inclement weather was rare in The City.  Rain you couldn’t feel took away from the illusion and freaked people out.  Finally, traffic began to move.  There was a cop directing things somewhere ahead of him, manipulating a pair of giant glowing sticks like an air traffic controller.  Finally.  Phil had places to be.  He needed to log out and pick up his kids.
