The Fourth Law
by Clayton Barnett
Lily Barrett lives in a shattered time for the US with her family missing and presumed dead. Two things keep her going: her job at a small orphanage and Ai, her odd but dear friend, whom she met online: who only shows herself to Lily as a rendered CG image. Troubled by her past and facing an uncertain future, Lily seeks only a quiet, normal life. But, her past and present conspire against her.
