I shiver, tug my scarf up higher over my mouth, and wipe a few snowflakes from my lashes.  Then I slam my boot down on my electric skateboard.  The board is old and used, like everything else I own, its blue paint almost entirely scraped off to reveal cheap plastic underneath-but it’s not dead yet, and when I push my heel down harder, it finally responds, jerking me forward as I squeeze between two rows of cars.  My bright, rainbow-dyed hair whips across my face.”
