Above the Clouds

Brick by brick they built into the sky. Life above the clouds was their only remaining choice. Pillars rose across the kingdom and names were placed into the tower lottery.

Francis, Glade, and Upton rejoiced as they were chosen. Once in their towers, they removed their breathing filters and augmented vision glasses. Life in the sun was quiet, peaceful, and new. The three engineers waved to each other and rigged their mirror communication and light transport lines.

They felt like winners until the order to begin laying the foundation for the new sky kingdom arrived. If only they could fly.
