|The Remnant: Part SevenLockwood was now making his way down to the archery range for the second time in as many days – a truly remarkable occurrence, given that he had no interest whatever in the sport and had never visited the place before in his life.|

"Can You See the Rainbow?" by roboticc
The Acara had never seen a rainbow. Everything about the Acara was painfully grey. His fur was a pale silver; his ears drooped forward and his eyes were dark. The suit he wore was a drab shade of grey, his pale shoes polished to a shine. Every day he walked the grey stone path with his black brief case in his hand, disappearing into a dull office to reemerge several hours later. Then he would return home and pluck an apple that had lost its color from the tree...
I rested my head against the wall, the cold stone cooling my cheek. I sighed and closed my eyes. My life hadn't always been like this.
