The Cost of Youth

PROMPT: Science Fiction Competition 2018

Judge Melvin hovered twenty feet above the crowd in his judgment pod. He glared at the middle-aged man in the witness stand. It was 2102! This case deserved to be ignored. Experimenting on Unwanted children under the age of personhood had been legal for fifty years. Nevertheless, Joel Perkins testified. On April twenty-ninth he found Saran Tellin's body behind Dr. Amherst's private laboratory.

                                                             One witness never came forward.

    They called him Musca Domestica. He assumed it was...

The Cost of Youth

PROMPT: Science Fiction Competition 2018

Judge Melvin had almost decided to take a nap. His judgment pod hovered twenty feet above the pod. No one would notice. Anyway, it was 2102! This case deserved to be ignored. Experimenting on Unwanted children under the age of personhood had been legal for at least fifty years. Nevertheless, the evidence was brought forward. Joel Perkins testified that on April twenty-ninth he found Saran Tellin's dead body behind Dr. Amherst's private laboratory.

                                                             One witness never came forward.

Five Ways to Spell Failure

PROMPT: Five Beginnings

I saw the disappointment in his eyes, though his back was turned to me. I knew I had failed again.

"Why can't you say something else?" he asked me, "Why are you always so negative?"

Nora wore a dull, slightly pained expression on her face. She looked like she knew she was born with an acute sense of failure.

The thing about people-pleasers is that they try so hard to please everyone, they seldom succeed in pleasing...

PROMPT: Science Fiction Competition 2018

Judge Melvin looked at the case description in disbelief. This was 2102! Child experimentation, so long as the child was an Unwanted under the age of personhood, was perfectly legal. Ethically, it had bee accepted long ago. Nevertheless, the evidence was brought forward. On the twenty-ninth of April Joel Perkins found the body of a five-year-old girl behind the private laboratory of Doctors Stekenowski and Amherst. The witnesses testified.

                                                             One witness was never known and never testified.
