Gatekeeper is a free short story.
There is a way to enter the Dome. The route is hidden, heavily guarded, and is not for those without inner strength and deep pockets.
Karon is a gatekeeper, watching over the final stretch of this route. Most days, there is nothing to do. Most days, he doesn’t see another soul once once he’s in the tunnels.
But some days are different. Sometimes, a walker comes to Karon’s gate, and he lets them through. Sometimes, a rare individual will make it to the Dome.
And sometimes they come back.
