AN ENDLESS FUTURE stretched in front of her.
Squeezing her eyes shut, she wished to ignore it, forget it, deny it. The future in her dream, while certainly tired and confusing, at least was a future that moved forward. A search in a mysterious city marked by erratically rotating symbols that would tell you where you were. A autumnal coastline that sang of new chances and lost moments. But at least it had felt alive.
Only bleak eternity was her award on wakening.
