Where’s the sky? by KS ~.
#144. Write about finding your way out a ruined/abandoned city from the bottom. You’ve been poor for all your life, trudging away on the lower level, trying to play outside the “rules”, so to speak, but you have mouths to feed and you’ve started to realize that doing questionable things, taking the more dangerous route often pays off more in the end than being safe does. With the buzz of a new slum success story going around, you gather up the courage to pursue a life on top, but what happens when you get up there and realize nothing is as it seems? Maybe there is no “top” anymore and it was all just propaganda to keep the people “under” working and striving for something? Maybe the “top” is luring people out for slavery? What happens when you realize something is wrong?
