#VisDare 128 : Devious

I wandered between the domes for days without finding another person. I found everything I needed to live, animals, fruit, vegetables. Life was everywhere. People weren’t.

After a few days a girl showed up. Her clothing was worn out, and she was caked with mud, and dirt. But her face and eyes told me she was happy. She smiled, “A newbie!”

“What?”

“You’re new here.” She giggled. “I wonder if you’ll play with the people in the domes.” She pointed at a couple. “I like to play with them,” she twirled like a ballerina. “It’s great fun.”

“Fun?”

Her smile was devious, “Yes! Fun!” She laughed, “I visit a dome, and act like the people inside for a while. Then, I do things that break the rules inside the dome. It drives people nuts.” She held her finger to her lips, “Shhh. I’m not supposed to do that.”
