The Spanish moss was swaying from the ancient oaks as if they were dancing. The history these trees have seen, if they could speak it would be
amazing. It was the middle of winter but snow hadn’t been seen in over a hundred year in those parts of Minnesota. She walked under the canopy of
trees breathing in the cool air from the outdoor air conditioner generators. Her long black hair shimmering in the wind. She could hear the leaves
behind her crunching and getting closer. She turned around and there he was. Standing about six feet tall, the first thing she saw were his eyes.
Those blue eyes, as deep as the sea, with little speckles of gray surrounded by the blackest of night eyelashes. She didn’t even have a moment to
think before he grabbed her in his strong embrace and stole a kiss. A single tear ran down her face.
It wasn’t even a minute before the P-bots were there. That was a nickname everyone made up for them, Police bots. It was now illegal to mate with
a person outside of your assigned DNA group. It didn’t matter how much you loved someone, it just wasn’t possible. People tried, but the cameras
implanted in their eyes and brains gave them away every time. Mating was considered any non authorized human touch. The P-bot grabbed him to take him
to the detentionary to recite the rules of human society. He only had two more chances before they recycled him. He was convinced this world he was
living in was unnatural.
It was a grueling two months in the detentionary but he was finally out. He left and headed to the valley. The valley was the only place humans
could go and not be surveilled. It wasn’t really a valley either, it was an old bunker lined with steel that was covered by trains and flanked by
old swampy ponds. There were only a few places left like this. That’s where he first met her. This time would be different, he planned on joining
the Winter. The Winter was the name for a rouge group that was fighting against the P-bots. The only chance of beating them would be in the winter
when weather was unpredictable and sometimes communication was down due to the heat. Nobody had ever actually celebrated real winter with snow or real
cold, or Christmas. It was only something they learned in about in human history class. They wondered did people really live like that and get to pick
their own mates back then or was it all a lie.
