Date: ??/??/?? Time: 11:57 PM Location: ??? A child, no older than 18, was finishing off an important message. The monotonous clicking of the keys and the occasional sigh were the only things that penetrated the silence in the room. The door was locked with a chair under it, and a boy was sitting on the bed. Or rather, he was floating just above it. "You're sure this will work?" The child stopped typing, pressed "Send", and turned to look at him. "It has to." Date: ??/??/?? Time: 11:59 PM Location: ??? Facility A scientist studied the halls through surveillance cameras, ensuring that nobody had decided to sneak into the kitchen...or anywhere else, for that matter. It wasn't exactly the most interesting job in the world, but he treated it like it was his most important responsibility. His partner, sitting next to him, did not seem nearly as diligent. She was leaning back in her seat, taking a sip of black coffee from a thermos. "Why do you look so hard? It's not like those kids are actually going to run off." The man pretended to ignore her, but he couldn't resist whispering to himself, "I'm not going to be the one to blame if they do. The boss would..." He stopped as the other scientist got closer, trying to hear him. Time: 12:02 AM The message arrived, but was not visible. It would not appear until the next day. Next Day: Friday Time: 9:02 PM The message became visible to the recipients. It would be invisible to anyone else. Next Day: Saturday Time: 7:00 AM The wake-up call commenced. The day had begun.
