I had only just learned about the Shapers, but I knew they couldn’t be trusted. So I joined The Resistance — a group working to protect humanity from these unknown beings. An eager recruit, I turned on my scanner to see what I could do. My stomach dropped immediately. The skies were green. My parents’ house was underneath an Enlightened field. The scanner showed a portal at a church several blocks away. “That’s it,” I thought to myself. “I’ll just attack the portal and the field will fall.”
As I walked to the church, my heart raced. “This isn’t a game,” the briefing had said. The words echoed in my mind. I needed to protect my parents from the Enlightened XM field surrounding their home. I needed to do my part to save the world from being used by the Shapers.
