Children of the Stainless Steel God.


The pale light of the rising full moon peeped over the concrete windowsill and filtered through the tiny, barred dormitory window to illuminate the stark interior of the room within, painting the minimalistic tableau with a series of alternating bars of faint light and deep shadow.

She lifted the thin (some would say “insubstantial”) sheet from her near-decrepit tube-steel bed and emerged fully clothed and ready, brushing an errant lock of her milk-white hair from her large cherubic eyes of deepest midnight blue and making her way in the faint moonlight across to where a thin (though relatively warm) faded blue-denim jacket was slung over the back of a much used aluminium chair which, apart from the bed, was the only other furniture in her otherwise extremely barren room.
