It's been forty-two years since the union between Livda and Shina, creating the empire of Shevna. Thirty-seven out of those forty-two years, Shevna was ruled by. Laru was a free spirited man, whom enjoyed colors, laughter, and music. Every city was joyful; everything was vibrant and happy but then it happened. The death of Laru. The empire mourned quietly at his funeral. Every child and adult placed one flower on his grave; each flower was a different color. This was said to be the most beautiful thing ever created. Life went on like always as the elders conversed over who would be the next ruler. It was soon decided that Kane, Laru's older brother, would take the crown.
Kane had always resented his younger brother for stealing the crown from him. He vowed to undo everything Laru achieved, starting with his empire. The first law would be no color except black, white, brown, and grey. Men wear suits and women wear a blouse and slacks. Anyone enrolled in school has a uniform that they wear every where. Males wear a white, long sleeve, button down shirt that is tucked into a pair of brown slacks; with black knee high socks; and black dress shoes. Females wear a white polo shirt; a brown mid-thigh high skirt; white, knee high socks; and brown flats. Everyone sleeps in white pajamas and has one pair of black slippers. Every house looks the same with the same grey color.
In two years Kane wiped out any trace of color and any form of expression. The sky was covered in smog and the grass was under cement. Animals wear banned from the empire, not like animals would want to be in such a depressing place. For five years this went on with no one making a fuss about it. Then they showed up.
It started with a group of friends reading about the history of Shevna (which was banned) and saw their first color. Green. They kept reading, seeing more colors like purple, blue, red, and orange. Then they saw the picture of Laru's funeral and that sparked everything. Thus became the Techni-Color revolution.
