Kim had been walking for a long time when she saw several tall structures in the distance. It was the first sign of human civilisation she had seen for a while. As she got nearer, she found they were standing among the tall grasses abandoned. She wondered how they had got here, what they were for, and why they had been left there. She was surprised by how tall they were and decided to climb up one to get a good view.
When she got to the top, instead of seeing the expected panorama of wilderness, she instead saw towns and roads full of activity. Surprised, she went back down the ladder but found as soon as she did, the vision disappeared and there was just wasteland around her again. She returned to the top and observed the thriving townships below, desperately wishing she could be a part of it.
