Calliope leaned over to adjust the anti-grav settings on her shoes, fiddling with the knobs until she couldn't feel the hard pounding of the pavement under the souls. The flashy red five inch heels were gorgeous, but it was a high price for this beauty. Her mother insisted that shoes like these were immoral and a complete waste of money. She wanted Calliope to focus on work and education rather than the fun and excitement she was always seeking.
At least, that's how things were when she was home. Calliope had been on the road for three years now, walking out of her parent's house when she was eighteen. She sometimes wondered how they were, but never regretted the decision. Bumming her way across the New Commonwealth of America, she had discovered so much about herself, and the world. She'd tasted the forbidden alcohol for the first time, slept out under the night sky and imagined what the stars of the past must have looked like. She had also explored her body's desires, something she could never have done at home.
The wild lands between the coasts held everything the civilized cities had thrust out. At home, you were on a projected path from day one, knowing your future job, expecting to find a husband and create children, though no one would tell her how. But out here, the people could be free if they found the right place, and she had heard of one haven: Pornlandia.
