A Chunk of SciFi – 1.09 Esper Guard [Class/Profession]

Some say it’s because of the cosmic radiation, or that humanity as a whole has evolved…hah…Whatever the reason, we’ve been given a gift with these people. You know the odd thing? There wasn’t the hatred and fear towards them that plagued our planet for generations beforehand. Maybe we learnt our lesson with the race riots and such. Who knows.
