Harmony Chapter 1: Exiled

This entry is part 1 of 30 in the series Harmony

My parents are rich. Filthy rich. To the point where it is completely insane. While I was growing up, I didn’t always realize it, but as I matured, I came into contact with kids who didn’t have private tutors. Kids who didn’t have their own city just so that their family would be left alone.

Harmony Chapter 2: The ship

This entry is part 2 of 30 in the series Harmony

There are three main types of space ships. The first type, shuttles are only used for carrying people between the ground and a space station. They are generally rather smaller and completely enter inside space port docking stations. The second type, stellar ships are used to quickly carry people within a solar system. The Earth-Mars ferry

Harmony Chapter 3: First Class

This entry is part 3 of 30 in the series Harmony

After a few weeks spent entirely alone in the economic section of the ship, I started to seriously feel space sick. Have you ever spent weeks without seeing a single human being while being assured you wouldn’t feel contact with another person before at least another 10 months? Can you realize spending your birthday alone

Harmony Chapter 4: Landing

This entry is part 4 of 30 in the series Harmony

I stopped caring. I almost stopped feeding myself. If I had still been in economic class, I would have most likely starved to death without anyone noticing, but in First Class, Paulio made sure I ate enough each day, going so far as dragging me naked from the pool so I would eat. Cathy started

Harmony Chapter 5: Customs

This entry is part 5 of 30 in the series Harmony

One of the older women stepped forward from the crowd. “Why are you wearing clothes ? Are you trying to insult our customs and laws? Even if you are a just visitor, you need to follow the rules” I quickly added it all up in my mind and knowing I couldn’t back down, decided to

Harmony Chapter 6: The City

This entry is part 6 of 30 in the series Harmony

I spent the rest of the afternoon walking the various streets of the city, familiarizing myself with the architecture. Houses were all identical and didn’t have windows, which seemed rather odd. At first, they reminded me of something I couldn’t place my finger on until it clicked in my mind that these houses were actually

Harmony Chapter 7: The banquet

This entry is part 7 of 30 in the series Harmony

City Hall was just another one of the big anonymous buildings placed at the end of the streets. It wasn’t even labelled or decorated. No flags or flowers announced it. It was there and everyone knew it was there and it didn’t seem to bother anyone that it looked almost identical to the school and

Harmony Chapter 8: Going to bed

This entry is part 8 of 30 in the series Harmony

From the outside, the little houses looked desperately tiny. At first glance earlier that day, I had imagined a couple living in each of the metal containers and found them terribly inadequate for that purpose. Now that I realized at the banquet that each man in the city had 3 to 5 concubines, it was

Harmony Chapter 9: Breakfast

This entry is part 9 of 30 in the series Harmony

When I woke up, I was still spooning Tiffany, but Cassiopeia had taken Penelope’s place in the bed. I guess I didn’t hear either of them moving in the house. I gently left the bed, leaving Mark and Tiffany asleep and took a look around the room to see if I had missed anything. Sadly,

Harmony Chapter 10: Train Ride

This entry is part 10 of 30 in the series Harmony

We sat for roughly 15 minutes while we waited for a few other people to enter and soon enough, the monorail accelerated quickly for the next station while Paul was talking to Alexandra about her tractor. On the first station, Paul and the other girl left with most of the passengers, leaving the three of us
