4. Stargazing -- 160ch

Categories: ShortStories#26 -- Permalink
Highways intertwine, a concrete canopy lit by the unsleeping city. Stargazing, we find constellations not in the light-choked sky, but in twinkling offices.

3. Mail -- 160ch

"No new mail."

"No new mail."

"1 new message(s)!" Heart jumps! Hands shake. Click, click.

Face falls. More spam.

2. A Teacher's Life -- 160ch
