Separation

Something went wrong many centuries ago. The genders started fighting. Now the women live on Okuria and the men live on Okurio. There are humans, ogres, dragons, anything you can imagine. What happened? Wren Arama is on a quest to find out.

2. Research

Beep. Beep. Beep. 

I groaned and slammed my hand on the alarm clock. I sat up and stretched. I yawned and swung my legs out of my warm bed. I looked longingly at my bed as I went to the bathroom. I lived in a two room and one half bathroom apartment. I washed my face and glanced at my makeup. God knows why I packed it when I don't need it. I relieved my bladder and went to wrap my boobs up. Finally I pulled on a loose green tshirt and shorts with sneakers. I scoured my fridge and pulled out a piece of bacon from yesterday.

"Well I won't be going to the cafe today. Might as well see what's on tv and research." I mumbled to myself.

I flopped on the couch and turned on the news. More talks of riots and crimes. Then, "Now on more pressing matters. Okuria's president, Clara Lee is denying any rumors of an army attacking us or sending any spies over here. There's been talk of retaliating and sending spies over to our sister planet if these rumors are true." 

My head shot up with a squeal. Spies? Retaliation? Armies? Since when had this happened?

"Maybe I should pay more attention." I sighed. "Well, off to the library, maybe I'll find more books."

Sitting at a table at the library, I had pulled out stacks upon stacks of history books, eyes scanning pages and absorbing any information.

"Ugh, this is so frustrating!" I slammed my head onto the open book. 

"What are you looking for, kid?" A deep voice asked. 

My head shot up with an indigenous stare. A tall, chubby man with salt and pepper hair and glasses looked down at me in a white button up shirt with a tie.

"I'm not a kid." I huffed and pushed at my pink streak.

He glanced at it, but didn't question it, I'd realized men here didn't give a damn about hair color. "And if you must know, I'm searching for any information on why the sexes separated." I looked at my book again. 

"Why that topic?" The man eased himself into the seat across from me. 

"It's just a topic that has interested me for some time now. With it on the news and all." His gray eyes pierced into my own turquoise ones. 

"Aha, well I'm afraid I haven't found a book in this library yet with that one topic. But I have a few at home that may interest you." He tapped his fingers on his chin with a smile. 

My pulse quickened and I felt sweat prick my eyebrows. "Oh, u-um..." I tapped my foot nervously. 

"Hey hey, easy now, it's not an invitation to try and get lucky with you." He raised his hands. 

"W-well okay, but only for research purposes! I'm just going to get the books and leave, okay?!" I stood and started striding toward the door. 

"Mhm, slow down I'm not as fast as you, kid." The man followed me quickly with a smirk. 

"Sh-shutup! I'm not a kid." I crossed my arms with a pout as the man led me toward who knows where.
