Sorry for the delay in posting! From this point on I will be back on track to post weekly on Fridays.
I work for the G.O.I.C. The Government Office of Interplanetary Communication. It was formed in 2030, 10 years after we made contact with the Toystea. Currently I am an Interplanetary Telepath. We have colonized several other start systems and humans are now spread out through space. Since space travel can still be slow, the quickest way for friends and family to communicate is through telepaths. It is a great way for everyone to keep in touch. But for the telepaths it is a forced placement. Everyone is screened the day they are born for the gift. Those who are telepathic are taken by the government to be trained for the job. This has caused some to make certain they live far from the cities and the government. They want to ensure that their children cannot be screened and taken away.
I live on Petra. There is a large hub for the G.O.I.C. here. I was brought here when I was 12 to finish my training and this is where they have left me for the past 20 years. I did not come from earth but a planet within the same solar system, Jupiter. My people live under ground on the planet in tightly packed communities. We were discovered once humans began to really explore every planet in their solar system. Now I live by myself in a one room apartment within the government building. I have a chip that has been implanted in my arm to keep track of where I am and track my health. Tomorrow I get to train a new batch of recruits. It will be my first experience with new telepaths and training. Making sure your skills are up to par for interplanetary use can be grueling and frightening at first.
