I would like to point out that I have a new list, http://www1.asstr.org/~Karl_Luck/storylist2.html
, since the old one was getting a little long.http://www1.asstr.org/~Karl_Luck/
Here's the main page, since I realized that none of the sub-pages have links back to main. (I will take care of that when I stop procrastinating.)
Anyways, here's my latest story;
Emily and Jacob stood before their father. Jacob was a typical sixteen
year old boy with blonde hair, who was slightly chubby but not fat. Emily,
his half-sister was a twelve-year, half-Korean, with shoulder-length black
hair and a fair dark complexion. Both had looks of fear on their faces
which grew stronger with each word.
"I don't know how to say this, but next week at this time one of you
will not be alive," he said grimly.
"Do you mean the Yearly Selection?" Emily gulped.
"I'm afraid so. I got the form in today and I sent the names off to the
Population Control Committee just now, along with photos of both of you.
Next week we'll get the results, and then I'm to snuff whoever was selected
and take the remains to the local Pop-Control Center."
"Welp, th-they're bound to take Jacob over me. They use our remains as
meat, right? He has more meat on his bones than me." She giggled and
slapped Jacob's belly.
"It's selected by a computerized lottery you little twerp, so we both
have a fifty-fifty chance," Jacob responded solemnly, "but I think they'll
pick you, you little squirt." He then slapped her belly.
"Alright you two, stop fighting; none of us know which one it's gonna
be." Their father grunted.
"I still bet it's gonna be you, Emily," her brother teased.
"I betcha it won't," she teased back.
"How about we wager?" Jacob suggested.
"What? Our lives are already on the line!" Emily threw up her hands.
"I bet that you will get picked. If I lose you can be the one who
snuffs me," he looked at his dad, "is that alright?"
The dad nodded in agreement.
"Alright, it's a deal," the young girl held her hand out.
"But if I win the bet and you get picked, well, then I get to kill you."
He told her before reaching out his own hand toPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
