The Roommates – Fast Forward to 2019: Chapter 1
When Bette emerged from an oppressive darkness her dark eyes opened, and she found herself standing on smooth pavement. The cripplingly loud hum, the abdominal pain, and her splitting headache were gone. She breathed a deep sigh of relief, the sounds of life echoing around her. There was a din of ever-present traffic, distant car horns, faint announcements from the PA system, footsteps and chatter. And whistles. A particularly loud whistle in fact. A short woman in a bright vest and black-billed hat was blowing that whistle right at her, her eyes crinkled, her mouth set in a deep frown.
