Synopsis: The post-apocalyptic world has changed. Colors have changed.
The skies are now red, and the seas fandango pink.
There are those who’ve acquired skills as “squinters”. By narrowing their eyes, they can see people in different colors—colors by which they can define their mood.
Senlin was born a squinter. A child of the foster system, the lack of love has left him with casual views on sex.
When Sicong recruits him into SQX, a squinter organization, Senlin wants nothing more than to jump his bones, but Sicong’s detachment makes Senlin believe his feelings aren’t reciprocated.
Senlin and Sicong’s relationship begins to grow as they undertake missions together.
That is, until an enemy of SQX turns his attention upon them.
THE NEXT DAY I woke in the late morning, unusually early for me, because of the restless sleep. I picked up the card Sicong left me and wondered if I should go. It sounded exciting to learn about my abilities, but I didn’t like the mission aspect of it.
It was a good day. The sky was cloudless and the sun was shining. I decided to go for a walk to help with my confusion. With the light breeze, I walked randomly around the neighborhood. It didn’t help with clearing my head, though, because all the faces of the guys I saw somehow changed into Sicong’s. I couldn’t deny Sicong was a bit fascinating. Okay, a lot fascinating, because he was hot and dangerous. Also, I remembered him telling me that if I squinted at him, he’d be light gray. That was new, because I seldom saw anyone who turned gray, or any shades of black for that matter. I meandered some more before I found myself in a part of town I rarely frequented. I looked about, trying to figure out where I was, when I focused on a rather plain building. It was ordinary, but I felt it was somehow familiar. I read the address and found it vaguely recognizable. “Twenty-Three Indigo Avenue.”
Then I saw him. Still clad in leather pants and sporting the spiky hair, it was the guy I’d been seeing in every guy’s face. Sicong. He walked toward me.
“You found us, I see.” He held out his hand.
