It was getting late at night, but the night life in Welton has just started. Under the noisy city, the last train was running alone through the dark underground world in a cobweb-like subway tunnel.
Abbey finally managed to drag her exhausted body into the train. At this moment, she felt that she was like a fish jumping into the city with all those fancy dreams, but ended up finding out it was a can that squeezed every drop of her vigor.
In the Midnight News on the television, the host was reporting that Kimi would be visiting the North on behalf of the Apple Federation. Abbey couldn't help smiling when hearing the familiar name, as if she was sharing the glory. Kimi was the current president of the Apple Federation Apparel Group. Abbey always regarded it as an honor to work for her, but at this moment she felt really depressed, because Kimi already had her own masterpiece and a high status as a graduate, while she herself has been struggling in the industry for many years yet with any achievement, and she hasn't even met Kimi...
Some people are born to be glittering gold, while some are born to be stones, and she happened to be the latter.
The train went out of the tunnel and ran on the ground. The raindrops, the wheels and the handrails were making a symphony of regular sounds, and she fell asleep with their company.
The surroundings have become a series of bizarre pictures and strange sounds. All of a sudden, everything went frozen and silent, and she opened her eyes.
In a vast expanse of blue, she couldn't even feel her own presence until she heard some loud clickings from afar. It was hen that she realized it was a song by whales, and she herself was one of them.
Abbey's consciousness jumped out of her body. She had this feeling that she could trace down the source of every drop of water in the ocean, but in the next second she couldn't feel her own thinking, or the time. She was puzzled. Which side was the real dream? The ocean, or the life in the Welton?
As she heard the whales singing in the distance, Abbey started to sing as well. She had no idea what the song was about. Perhaps it was about dream, about the concept of beauty, about some fantasy that every ordinary person woul dhave, or about the long-lost liberty.
Finally she found the whales. They were singing a beautiful lyric with various clickings while patting the water surface with their huge tail fins. Abbey started singing, which naturally became part of the song, making it even perfect. Suddenly, with the prelude being finished, the sea went wild, gathering all the clouds to ferment a storm. Louder and louder as they sang, the song reached a climax together with the storm.
'The train has reached the destination. Please take your belongings with you...' A mechanical female voice spoke untimely out of a sudden. At the same time, a lighting stroke from the clouds, tearing the world apart. Abbey opened her eyes and saw, though it was obscure, the light of the train.
Getting off the train, Abbey felt she was filled with inspirations she never had. As she looked at the night sky cleared by the rain, she could see millions stars shining on her.
