Synopsis: In our future, robots known as Tins keep us protected from the floods, fires and diseases of the outside in what are called Compounds. But when the Tins become more our masters than protectors, humans rebel. Lexi019 is turning eighteen, and will then be sent into what Tins call the Electric Gardens. Since no one ever returns from the Electric Gardens, Lexi019 is desperate to escape. With her best friend Kyle53 and his sister, the three of them find an unlikely friendship that helps them escape. But not everything is what it seems in this Robotic Dystopia, and soon Lexi019 will be faced with hard decisions she never anticipated. Join Lexi019 and Klye53 in this four part Robotic Dystopia set in a future that could one day be our own.
My good friend Lucy717 is now a Mesh; she almost made it to the Electric Gardens. She used to be a vibrant blonde, who kept her hair in a bob. She was just seventeen when she tried climbing a wall to escape the Compound; a mother to me, she was three years older. The Tins caught her and gave her two glitches. Attempted escapes yield harsh consequences. She served a week in the cells. Eleven months later, she made it to her room at 9:01 p.m., past curfew by a minute. Three glitches, and she was dragged to the Re-Wiring building, kicking and screaming the whole way. I’ve never seen her again. We used to eat breakfast together every morning before Re-Learning. I wipe a single tear sliding down my heating cheek. I just called her Lucy, because we lost our last names when we entered the Compound. 919 means there are at least nine-hundred-and-nineteen other Lucys in the Compounds across America.
