The darkest shade was black and the lightest was white. The other shades were insignificant, not worth noticing; just like everyone he had ever met in his life.

Another stressful day in his office made Micheal wonder how he was going to complete the ginormous task in front of him. He leaned back on his chair, closed his eyes and listened to the dull whirr of the air conditioner. A knock on his door startled him.
