BLURB

It was beautiful, and everything was ok. She was still fuzzy on some of the details, like who she was, where she was, and how she had ended up here, but that didn’t matter. This place was great. Sure, some things about it were a bit off. The air was perfectly still.  It didn’t look like the sun was any higher than it had been when she got here… whenever that was. And she was pretty sure she’d seen that same cloud go by ten or fifteen times now. But it was beautiful, and everything was ok. And she did not want to leave. She certainly didn’t want to fight back against the B.R.A.I.N, she knew that for sure. Huh. What was the B.R.A.I.N.? It felt familiar. Yes, things were coming back to her. A memory was forming just at the edge of consciousness. Something within her told her she needed that memory, and she focused on it harder and harder, and she could feel the fog clearing until, finally, in a flash, she knew: It was beautiful, and everything was ok. [Charlie Caplan]
