Novella 4 feature ~ When We Could Hardly Contain Ourselves (Reef)
“I’m going to find a way to get a visa. I’ll follow you there, I’ll find you. I promise.” –page 216
Sixty years from now, Seattle is terribly overcrowded and home to a massively popular virtual reality game that’s projected onto the city’s buildings. Reef makes a meager living playing the game, but in order to make real money he needs to get past the game’s paywall. He enters into a contract with a girl named Cadence, who gives him the cash he needs but who in return wants a visa that can get her out of the overcrowded city.
I thought it would be interesting to write a story about a place where girls are rare—I thought the power in such a place would shift to women. In WHERE FUTURES END, a genetic ability allows people to see the Other Place, a mysterious alternate universe, but that ability shows up more often in men than in women (because it’s a recessive x-linked trait). So it’s men, more than women, who flock to future Seattle, the gathering place for those interested in the Other Place. I pictured Cadence as a character who would enjoy freedom and luxury as a rare young woman in Seattle, but my research led me down a different path. In present-day areas of the world where men outnumber women, young girls are often treated like property and are sold into marriage at a young age. They have very little freedom.
So Reef’s relationship with Cadence is difficult. Reef realizes that the only way he and Cadence will find the freedom to be together is if they can escape the country, and to do that Reef will have to pull off a heist inside the virtual reality game he plays so well. But there are secrets inside the game that Reef has yet to uncover, secrets that could lead to some dark days in the fifth part of WHERE FUTURES END.
