Antaires is an ancient world. Anything you can think could happen to a civilization probably already happened here.
The Green Cat Cabaret has been quite popular since it opened it's doors some years ago, in the cold northern district #16785, and the Antaires love it's cozy environment, good drinks, and the variety of shows. Many say they seem to have been brought from other worlds, after all, in a civilization that is millions of years old, to come out with some creative story isn't that easy.
The Antaires also like the name of the place, after all, a green cat? Seriously, everyone knows that cats are blue. Well, except in Esteria maybe, there they have brownish colors, but green? Haha, artists these days. Don't know what else to reinvent.
That night, the Green Cat Cabaret re opened it's doors after it moved to a new location: a very popular area in the district, where other theaters, night clubs, bars and such kind of places are. This area stands on top of a cliff overlooking the residential area of the district and you know, cats love tall places.
Taku's father was one of the sculptors of the new building. In Antaires, building are made to last for centuries (there are no natural resources left), and they are covered by a resin that, when exposed to a certain artificial wavelenght, becomes malleable. This way, constructions can look totally different and still be the same. The sculpting is done by hand, since Antaires like to do it that way.
Taku's dad gave his son 3 tickets for the opening show, tho share with his best friends Antidi and Antoni. However, when he was halfway to the GCC, he realized the tickets were still at home. Good thing he made on time.
That night is also a special one because it's during that one month in 10 years were the orbits of Antaires and Esteria are closest, and they can see each others. Antidi and her friends are probably going to take a walk along the cliff after the show.
