By the way, this world and organization just so happen to be heavily featured in two of the four stories in my Short Story Collection Vol. 1, so you should totally go check that out if you’re interested in this universe.
When Ash came to get me, I was already expecting it. Continue reading “G: Grantech Opening Scene”
