Two boys, teenagers in fact, come from a Dystopia of words. Everything is made up of words, and the buildings of rough clay that breaks off every day. There is no feelings or any emotions, only words. Any emotions that come up just turn into words before they can be felt. The youth of this city are less vulnerable to this environment, so they are able to feel emotion, but only by the slightest. Two teenagers in this city decide to leave because they were starting to feel the words take over their freedom of person. It takes them days to leave the city due to words of everything surrounding them; but they finally get out. The two teenage boys had no idea where they were going, but they knew they had to leave the city of words behind…They had been traveling for a few days when they came upon a city made out of entirely what seemed like light and glass. Walking in, they felt, well they don’t really know what they felt. Just that it was…beautiful. Everywhere they looked, there were buildings made out of glass, the sunlight shooting through with magnificent beauty. Right in the middle of the city, they could see a big dome building with a very tall tower protruding from the back. This dome was made in a way that looked like it wasn’t just regular glass, but rainbow glass. Deciding to go inside, they find that it’s a massive library. Sitting right in the middle, were 5 busts of men, old men. But these busts weren’t marble, or glass. They were diamond. Detailed busts of five old men made out of diamond. As far as they could see there were shelves upon shelves of books. Just a few rows of books behind the busts was an elevator that led up to the tower. The two boys decided to go to the elevator and go to the top. Riding up to the top, they could see the whole city, the light both reflected and flowed through every building they could see. It was the most beautiful site they had ever seen. In the elevator, it felt like they were floating, gliding into the air. Not noticing, the elevator came to a stop, and a door opened up behind them. They both turned and saw a short hallway where the floor was made out of what looked like an ice-blue glass, seemed fragile, but when they stepped on it, it glowed a neon sea-foam green. And also glowed around the whole hallway in a nebula and smoky pattern, which normally wouldn't go well with the blue color, but it blended together so breathtakingly beautiful when it glowed. This hallway led to a set of large doors that seemed to be made entirely of a purple light that just… just took their breath away and left them speechless. With each step they took, a new smoke nebula swirled and led them to the door. Reaching the door, they realized they could just pass right through. For what seemed like a couple minutes, going through a solar array of colors, they had come on the other side, but looking at their watches, not a second had passed. At the far end of the room, they could see an old man. Well…He looked old. Long silver hair and an edgy, but well trimmed beard. But there was something about him, he looked familiar. Then they realized, he was one of the old men that had a bust of him in the library. He told them where he came from and what he sought to do. He had come from the same place as the boys, so that's why he was still around, why he was still alive, he aged slower. He told them how he traveled from the city of words, and met 4 other young boys. All from different places, different backgrounds of discord. They created this utopia together
