She finds herself in the on a space station in the near future when people are trying to get off the earth. The space station has been turned into a medical hospital. She is the administrator and at times bumps heads with the commander, a military general sent there to keep order named Bruce Gordon. Destiny touches down in California to see why people are leaving with her friend Ava.
Bruce Gordon was like her half Asian and half white, but that did not mean they got along. They build heads every five minutes. He often thought and treated her if she was naive and hot headed. Both were hot headed in fact. She still liked him, in fact she had a crush on him which she tried to hide every five minutes. Ava was the on,y one who noticed. He did not look Asian like she did in fact no one would know or suspect unless they saw his middle name, then only then few would put it together. People in this time were used to mixed race people. Bruce Goshi Gordon it said on his desk. Non one would notice but an immortal, they spent their lives noticing other races.
Ava was a street kid plucked from the streets of Brazil by the military who is now a brilliant scientist. California is dry and has been taken over by Asia. Destiny learns the water of the earth is contaminated. They have a supply left for two days. The world is now divided by the east and the West and the west is dwindling and loosing. All westerners have retreated to the medical hospital. Only wealthy professionals have been able to get there because the station is located out near one of the second earths found in 2016.
