After Today Large towers were built in order to sustain the population that was starting to explode on the surface world. When people started to move to start a new life in the towers, some jobs had to be remade in order to better serve the now vertical houses that people now live in. The first six floors of the seven towers across the world are the main Housing Districts; with marketplaces lining the main walkways from the elevator to the other side of each of the six tiers to the seven floors of each apartment complex within each tower. With the new way of living, one of the main concerns was how people were going to get their mail. Letters and packages weren’t going to fly into people’s mailboxes. With time, people noticed that the buildings were close enough to climb in between them. With practice and a little modification to the buildings, people were bounding throughout the alleyways, grasping onto pegs and poles with letters in their hands and packages on theAfter Today by hyoris

He reached for a square shaped device on the small table he set up on top of the roof of ACE Towers and twirled it in his hands. Walking over to the railing that circled the roof, he gazed at the various lights that kept the city shining. He looked up to the metal dome that surrounded the city but also blocked any kind of natural light from the outside world and exhaled sharply. He turned around and leaned this back to the railing and slid down until he sat on the gravel covered roof. The pitter patter of the rain continuously beat on the metal above him. He turned on the device in his hand and a holographic sphere buzzed to life. Dais turned it around and stared at a pair of dots next to each other and poked at them twice, doubling the size of the hologram. He glanced at his watch.
He closed his eyes and banged his head on the railing several times.
Time could not move any slower.

The water was as cold as ice and it seemed to take forever to get to the surface. Orion's head broke through the water as he gasped for air. He was already so tired it was hard to stay afloat. In moments he would get hypothermia, so he had to try his hardest to swim. He figured if he kept close to the bridge he would be alright, his only worry was becoming shark chow. He heard splashes around him and thought they might be Seals or Dolphins. He kept trying to convince himself that it was all a dream, but he knew that was in vain.
When he had been tossed off the bridge he realized if he didn't want to die he would have to get into pencil position. He was falling from about 250 feet and even falling in this way, the entry would still hurt. He hit the water hard and sunk in pretty far, and his struggle back up felt like forever.
Orion kept coughing as water tried to make its way into his lungs. That's when he decided it was a good time to start yelling

The next things that happened had just seemed to rush by to fast- but to slow. Phae was safely on the ground but Orion wasn't around. She could feel the blood from her back wounds soaking her shirt. With no time to think she made a run for her sword but the Scythian dracanae grabbed her foot. Phae's fingers clawed at the ground as she tried to scramble away. "Let go of Me!"
Then a whistle screamed across the air. Phae finally grew some courage and kicked the Scythian dracanae in the face and rolled away. She reached for her sword and held it in front of her in defense.
Lighting cracked through the air and smacked the Scythian dracanae, sending it flying a few feet away. Two pegasi landed rather quickly and two Demi-gods jumped off them just as fast. One with a whip laced with lightning, the other with a decent sized short sword. The youngest of them ran to Phae and helped her up. The other decided to tango with the scaly wench. He smirked as they exchange

Orion was looking around trying to figure out where the monster was coming from, when he realized it was just barely in front of Phae. He grabbed her arm and pulled her close and started to step away. That's when the saw it, the hissing girl from before. She had a sword in her hand and was whipping her head around. Her tongue would strike the air as she tried to smell them out. Then she caught wind of them and smashed her sword just inches from Phae's feet.
Phae pushed Orion away and pulled out her Ipod as fast as she could. Her hands fumbled as she tried to get it to turn into her sword, but the girl swung her sword again, this time grazing Phae's left cheek. Phae almost drop her Ipod out of fear, it had been ages since she had actually left on a quest or fought a monster.
Orion, even though he was tired and in pain, stood up to the monster and pulled his Scythe out from his pocket. He kept up at defense trying to keep the girl from getting any closer.
