My name is Wren Amara. I'm a girl and I should be on the planet Okuria. But instead I'm on Okurio, the sister planet with only men. Many centuries ago something happened between the sexes and now we're separated. I wanted to know why so I packed my stuff and dressed as a boy, taking a ship to Okurio. That was seven months ago and I haven't gotten anywhere with my research. Maybe because I hide around avoiding people as I study the men. 

"Here sir." A waiter handed me my salted caramel hot chocolate.

I wore a binder so I looked flat chested and I had on a baggy gray hoodie and sweatpants with sneakers.

"Oh thanks." I smiled and nodded. 

I sipped my hot chocolate and looked at my sketches.

"Uh..." I glanced, realizing the waiter was nervously shifting feet next to me still. 

"Yes?" I cocked an eyebrow. 

"Well, y-you come here daily so I s-see you a lot and..." He scratched his head. "Well I was wondering if you'd like to go on a walk with me sometimes." 

He had short brown hair with green eyes set beneath well arched eyebrows and his face was now red. I nearly spit up my hot chocolate.

"Uh, excuse me? Why would you want me to go on a walk with you?" I started feeling nervous, gathering up my belongings. 

"W-well 'cause y-you're cute." He turned his head. 

I stood up suddenly, the chair skidding back as I clutched my sketchbook to my chest. My heart beating rapidly I cried out, "N-no thank you! I-I can't! Bye!" 

I rushed passed him, flinging the door opening and running down the sidewalk. I glanced over my shoulder and saw the waiter peering out after me with a saddened expression. I turned a corner and stopped, leaning on the side of a brick building. I let out a large breath. "I would've taken the offer in a heartbeat if I was allowed to be here." 

I was eighteen and still hadn't dated or kissed anyone. I didn't like girls, but I liked men. Sadly, I wasn't supposed to be here and I couldn't reveal myself.
