In 2078, I was 16 years old and the biggest concern on my mind was the next mod I might go for.
Just one more reason to hate the damn Dracs, who invaded Earth that year.
As the child of rich, overly permissive parents driven by a vague guilt that they were too caught up in their own lives to spend much time with me, I’d gone for three mods prior to the invasion. The first was my hair…I hated the mousy brown I’d been born with, and dyes were such a pain in the ass.
A little tinkering, and hey, presto! My hair was silver white; a great standout in a crowd. The second and third mods were due to my fascination with vampires. I wanted fangs, I got them via implants. Nothing drastic, I didn’t want to lisp when I talked. The last was my eyes; from plain old, boring gray to a faintly reflective quicksilver.
