Athena believes her world is perfect. Direct democracy means that everyone votes, on everything: from how their healthcare is funded to the colour of the clothes they wear.

When an explosive encounter with the mysterious Dyo throws Athena's beliefs into turmoil, Athena is soon drawn into a society on the outskirts, where she discovers a darker side to the world she lives in. But there is danger in the truth and this new knowledge comes at a heavy price. Can Athena turn her back on everything she has ever believed in? And what will happen to her if she does?

I loved the introduction, I just read it and was hooked by the detail. *Claps for 1 minute*

I'm really liking this idea you have of a democracy gone too far.

@Nanadm thank you very much! I based them off google glass. I should probably put some more description in :)

The world you created is really interesting. The beginning of the story is really good. I just can not picture really what do the feed glasses look like. But it may be explained later. :)

Choosing what to wear based on a collective vote...a scary concept, but an interesting look into the influence of others on seemingly small details.

Your writing style is very interesting, and really helps me picture the girls wonderfully! I really enjoyed this chapter, but I'm really curious what results they're waiting on!! Good Job!! :)
