The day started as any other would. Tai woke up at ten and wandered to the kitchen, still groggy. On the island, flyers and prints of possible apartments. He grabbed a glass and poured himself some coffee. He was munching on a biscuit when he realised something. The calendar hanging from a nail on the wall. The date. August 1st. He stood up, blinking fast, and ran to his bedroom to grab his phone.
Yeah, it was the day. And no one had said anything about hanging out. No meetings? That couldn’t be. Tai grabbed his phone and picked the very first contact that he saw, one of the guys.
‘Hey, happy August 1st! We doin smthg today?’ He typed, quickly hitting sent before he regretted writing the message.
That’s home. Planet Earth. But I’m not sure that’s where I am right now. Okay. Let me back up a little… It all began when the climate went completely out of control. The rain forest dried out and other places got totally flooded with oceans like chocolate sauce. And get this, cities which were normally blazing hot in the summer got super cold. At the time, I didn’t know any of this was going on because I was at camp!
