Hi, I’ll be taking over as narrator now since the first one ended up being a character of the story.


Who am I?


Oh, umm. I’m just a voice who knows just about everything in this story. I know what each character is thinking and what will happen.


Oh that doesn’t explain who I am?


Ok, well. I’m actually the author. I’m just known as Arkayy or Ark for short.


I’m going to be honest with you. I have no idea what this story is actually about or what’s going to happen. I’m just writing as I go. I’m having trouble deciding if I want to write in third person or first person view.


I think I’ll go third person. Let’s talk about the setting and the four characters I have introduced to you.


We’re in the distant future where electric vehicles completely dominated the land. Gas-powered vehicles have been outlawed and solar panels installed everywhere. Gas stations have been altered and outfitted to be battery swap and charging stations. The roads have all been replaced with heavy duty solar panels, and large battery buildings can be found everywhere.


Two companies rule the United States. 


Tornt, a tech company that provides the software, UI, and automation of all things. Gas Station, Road Charge Stations (parking lots that will charge your vehicles), grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Almost every single job has been replaced with robotic automation. 


Levin. The company that provides all the solar panels, batteries, and everything needed to power your everyday life. They control all the robots.


Tornt Peacekeepers can be found all over the U.S. and have replaced a lot of the government-funded police departments. While the police still do exist the Peacekeepers do most of the work. Peacekeepers have better funding and advanced technology. Levin robots are often paired with a Tornt Peacekeeper.


Now there’s Rowan and Eddy. Two friends living in an apartment creating zero-day hacking tools. I actually just made up that last part. I actually wanted these two to go on a grand hero’s journey. However, it sort of changed as I wrote the first part. My mind goes everywhere.


Next we have “Dave” and “Karen”. Their chapter doesn’t really explain much about themselves. So I’ll elaborate. Dave works for Tornt the company that I introduced earlier. Tornt has a secret division to recon potential recruits or to keep an eye on the ones that pose a threat. Dave and Karen work in this department. 


They both were once a couple. It was a forced union by the company because they were deemed most compatible during their rookie years with the company. Though they have split they kept it a secret from their employers. They both manage to work well together when placed in the same task despite the unofficial break-up.


Now that you’re informed let’s get back to the story
