This was a short story I wrote for the recent XPrize "Seat 14C" competition (https://seat14c.com). Although I didn't win, I think I came up with something special here.

The premise was simple but intriguing: Create a first-person account of the passenger in Seat 14C, on ANA Flight #008, as this passenger discovers they've mysteriously been transported 20 years into the future. How has our world changed as a result of emerging technology and innovation, and how does your character interact with this changed world?

Readers of my Water Worlds series may find some similar themes running through the story. I hope you enjoy it!
