Repository – Project 2 : Soundscape

The rain splashes against their skin and there is a weird tingly sensation that they had never felt before, the sensation of the wind brushing against their skin so naturally, so cold.

Double A danced in the rain and totally forgotten what Theron told them “The mycoplankon essence will be washed off in the rain”. After minutes in the rain, they start to feel a burning sensation on their skin, the rain is highly acidic and they know they shouldn’t stay in the rain and started running towards what seems like the city as the rain blurred their vision. , as they sprint in the painful rain reaching an abandoned building that seems like a supermarket.

Double A entered and saw what seems like a diesel generator which you (Arisampat) tries to activate it and it worked, the lights turned on and you saw a big ass radio alike machine sitting right under the brightest light.
