    FIRST MESSAGE, HIGHEST PRIORITY, RECEIVED TODAY AT 11:30 AM FROM FIORA- 'Hey, N, so a couple of us are going to meet up, you know in the usual place, at the usual time in TRW. So if you want to come hurry up, I have something URGENT to tell you, and DGC'

    I am awake. I slowly opened my eyes to the fluorescent green glass covering the pod and search for the button which would open the hatch. Some times I don't want to leave. And embrace the dark and dank underground world I live in. It would be much easier to stay in here my whole life. I would if I could. But they'ed probably exile me to the wasteland. And I wouldn't enjoy that.
    Slowly I open the hatch and sit up letting my eyes adjust to the darkness. The hatching chamber, or so we call it was just the same as it always been. Dark. Cold. Wet. Rows of pods lined up next to each other. Story upon story of rows. According to my mum there are a billion pods in here. I don't know why. There are only a million of us after all. Every one only uses the top floors. After all the bottom half is forbidden. But sometimes if you try to look really far you'll see the pods, instead of green their red. Emergency pods? I don't know.
    Slowly I pull the green plug out of my neck. There is a sharp pain and then a tingling. I hate being unplugged. When we're born, we're fitted with a socket at the back of our necks, even from a young age we're trained to use the V.U.S.A.N.. 
    "Hey, Nova just unplugged huh?" I turned around. It was my sister, Lera. "I'm going on to finish my homework on the boroughs."
    "Cool, uh, hey have you seen dad recently?" I ask.
    "No, he's at work, stupid"
    "Oh, thanks, well see ya!" I say as I walk down the metal path. I check my holopad. It's 1pm. Great I'm officially late.
    We meet up in the under tunnels, a huge network of tunnels under Endora, we've played there since we were kids, it's hard to get there since, we're technically not allowed down there. We use it to meet and talk in private. If you were wondering TRW means 'the real world' as in not in the V.U.S.A.N. and DGC means don't get caught. If I were caught they'd probably arrest me.
    Quickly I walk down the street, past the medi-patch store and the Technology department building, into a small alley way between the two. At the end of the alley is a iron grate. I lift it up and slip into the tunnel. Running, I arrive at the hide out. Fiora's eyes are red and puffy. She's been crying.
    Something bads happened.
