Arad Ansari is a homeless street slug in the Grey District A-5 colony. Work is hard to come by and he has to compete with the animal/human hybrids called DemiShou, forcing him to make his way in less than savory methods. Getting off-planet sounds like a godsend, but fate has a way of complicating the best opportunities of a man with little luck.
This story is part of the flash fiction group Wednesday Briefers because I need a kick in the pants to keep a new story moving forward with my crazy schedule. I've been working on revising old stories for so long I needed a little fresh blood in the pan. Each week a new chapter will come out with a maximum of 1k words. Read them one at a time, save some up for a bigger read all at once. Whatever works for you.
