Holly​ ​White – Orange​ ​World

We​ ​could​ ​see​ ​the​ ​orange​ ​dome​ ​in​ ​the​ ​near​ ​distance,​ ​smaller​ ​than​ ​its​ ​name​ ​suggested;​ ​newspaper
painted​ ​with​ ​the​ ​words​ ​“still​ ​open”​ ​was​ ​taped​ ​on​ ​a​ ​burnt-out​ ​car,​ ​painted​ ​orange,​ ​sitting​ ​out​ ​front.

On​ ​the​ ​bike​ ​trailer​ ​we​ ​had​ ​a​ ​crate​ ​of​ ​dusty,​ ​but​ ​still​ ​drinkable,​ ​capri-sun,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​were​ ​looking forward​ ​to​ ​seeing​ ​what​ ​Orange​ ​World​ ​had​ ​to​ ​offer​ ​in​ ​exchange.​ ​It​ ​would​ ​mostly​ ​be​ ​much​ ​of​ ​the same;​ ​sugary​ ​orange​ ​drinks​ ​seemed​ ​to​ ​be​ ​the​ ​most​ ​prevalent​ ​orange-related​ ​food,​ ​and​ ​they preserved​ ​really​ ​well.​ ​There​ ​would​ ​also​ ​be​ ​real​ ​oranges.​ ​We​ ​had​ ​already​ ​seen​ ​some​ ​on​ ​the​ ​trees along​ ​the​ ​side​ ​of​ ​the​ ​road,​ ​we​ ​could​ ​have​ ​helped​ ​ourselves​ ​but​ ​had​ ​decided​ ​to​ ​wait.

Of​ ​course,​ ​oranges​ ​weren’t​ ​really​ ​the​ ​point;​ ​Orange​ ​World​ ​was​ ​the​ ​only​ ​info​ ​spot​ ​for​ ​miles. There​ ​would​ ​probably​ ​be​ ​a​ ​computer,​ ​maybe​ ​some​ ​solar​ ​power.​ ​It​ ​would​ ​be​ ​somewhere​ ​to exchange​ ​news​ ​and​ ​somewhere​ ​to​ ​hang​ ​out​ ​for​ ​a​ ​few​ ​days​ ​in​ ​the​ ​company​ ​of​ ​new​ ​people.
