Write about: the city in the sky.
Had a pretty quiet day around the house here. Might have had a little to do with a donut coma.
Tina stood at her living room window, staring at the layer of permanent clouds below. On days like that one she liked to pretend that it was really just an open field, covered by an overnight snowfall.
Maybe, she thought as she sipped her mint tea, one morning I'll forget the truth and try to go for a walk.
She would not have been the first.
It was a difficult adjustment, but it wasn't a bad life. The solar panels took care of the city's energy needs, and with no need for traditional currency everyone was on relatively equal footing. The Council members had the nicest homes, but that was to be expected. After all, it was thanks to them that the city existed in the first place.
But Tina missed the trees, and the lakes, and the feel of solid ground beneath her feet. And the guilt of being among the chosen few to populate the city followed her everywhere, a constant ghostly companion.
And the wondering never seemed to stop. She wondered if the city was sustainable. She wondered when she would be allowed to leave. She wondered when the first murder would occur, and who the historic victim would be.
But most of all, she wondered whether or not any of those left behind on Earth's surface had survived.
