Sarah wrestled a radiation canopy over the dome’s Genesis terminal, the brim of her hat pulled low to protect her face from the sun's deadly rays. Outside, six more domes gleamed in the afternoon sun like giant bubbles rising out of the Earth. It was her favorite view of the Ark, her favorite place to try new programs, far away from her classmates' prying eyes.
“Are you really going to re-program our bangs?” Cassie asked as the radiation canopy clicked into place.
“Just watch me.” Sarah punched in her password, followed by several commands for new hairstyles. Luckily, she had anticipated Cassie’s request and had been creating Genesis programs all week.
“How about a little off the back?” She hit the exec button, and Cassie’s reddish-blonde hair shortened ten centimeters. “Then we’ll lengthen the front and pull it back with a barrette.”
Cassie’s eyes bugged as she touched her bare forehead.
