They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars. 

That was a long time ago. 

The dance has died. The world has fallen still. We float through the heavens, one half always in light, one half always in shadow. Like the moth of our forests, one wing white and the other black, we are torn. 

My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid... and alone in the dark. 

I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

Amazing writing, good twist, leaving the readers wanting more. I could only hope my writing gets nearly as good as this.

I could understand why you guys dislike her, but I acutually like her a lot. Her comedic relief does wonders for me.

Bloody red as a descriptor here creates a nice instance of foreshadowing, I like it

Crap. This is awesome already and I need to see if this is published so I can get a hard copy of this.
If the earth stopped spinning suddenly it would throw everything at almost 2000 mph and we’d only be able to live in the line between dark and light. Really gets rid of a lot of possibilities, but I like this story so dar
If there is sunlight everytime, isn't the land supposed to be dry. Absence and excess of light can cause glitches.
