It took a long time for anyone to notice. Things were busy. Cities had to be built and farms planted. The protective shield which would hide them from harm was devised and constructed. Old grievances were resurrected, resolved, and resurrected again. Eventually, a brilliant scientist found the answer- he designed large transmission towers that projected dreams into sleeping minds – for a fee. The manufactured dreams, however, were pale imitations: graying ghosts where there should be vibrant figures. People didn’t want to pay, so the towers were left to rust, mostly. For years, no one thought about dreams much at all, until a young women called Ardin Bailey was forced to think about them very, very hard indeed.
