This was set in a dystopian world, where if you were over 60, had any birth defects, were mentally ill or physically unable to take care of yourself, you'd be killed. I was traveling around with my grandpa, dad and brother trying to hide my grandpa who was over 60. It was cold and we needed to hide, so we did at a bus stop (I know, genius). When the bus arrived, we had to state our name before getting on the bus, everyone was fine to go in, except me. They wouldn't accept my name 'Kyle'. Fed up with them, I told the guard the truth that I am a transguy and my birth name was Rachel (Which in fact is true). Suddenly, all the guards turned to me, set on killing me because being trans fell under the category of mentally ill. I started running, and luckily, I was super fast and smart with how I moved, because I didn't get caught for awhile. After running in the cold for a long time, I reached my school where I was taught to trust the guards, for they knew best. The teachers were supposed to be here for us youth, but I knew they'd turn me in. Luckily, one teacher without a face was able to divert their attention so I could be safe for longer. I don't remember how it ended, though somewhere I dreamed that my family was having Thanksgiving dinner.
