The Secret Overhead

"Can't you just tell me where we're going?" asked Kirin.

Ant1n smiled and nudged the hovercar faster, angling up. Glowing signs, flashing guidelights, and blazing windows flicked past, faster and faster.

"You're getting near the boundary," Kirin said. The warning indicator on the dashboard was already blinking red.

"Yup."

"we're going to crash!"

Ant1n didn't answer. A shrill proximity alarm squealed as they passed the last of the lighted floors and burst through the cloud cover.

"We have sixty-seven seconds before the Cybercops get here," said Ant1n. "Just look."

Kirin said nothing, her eyes wide.

"They're called stars," said Ant1n.
