New Release: Dromos by G. Arden O'feden

The last shop had a back entrance to the alley where the dumpster sat. With the last of the trash in my hands, I stepped through the door into a wall of rain, slipped on the pavement under my feet, and fell into an ocean. Before I had the chance to ponder why I was about to drown in a puddle, a current sent me into downward darkness. The force of the pull launched me into the light and onto a metal floor.
Where I awoke exists somewhere between the physical and the real, in the depths of a city nowhere near Earth --a factory is the easiest way I can describe it. The ceiling arched upward like a ribcage of iron girders, to a grey dome pulsating with waves of luminous water sealed off by a glass casing at the top. If this place had an exterior, I never saw it. For all I knew, I was looking at the exterior.
