I know I have two barely started stories but I’ve reached a writers block and this was a spur of the moment thought so here it goes.
[left]Centuries after the Great Fall, a civilization has been created, choice has been stripped from civilization to protect the world from another fall. Everything changed women stayed home to raise the kids while men went to work.
My name is Mitchelle, I was born and raised in Region: 6 Sector: 3 Subsector: 234. I have brown hair and stand at about 5’5". Our subsector is an agricultural one, so there aren’t many people. 23 years ago there was a law created that stripped the last choice we had, our jobs, now whatever your father does for work you do also. As I grew up I felt something missing from my life. I was an anomaly, inquisitive, and filled with life. Every night after I was supposed to be asleep I would gaze at the stars and dream of what they were. My dad is a doctor.
It wasn’t till I was 13 that I made a choice that changed the world. My alarm clock blared into my ear, I groaned as I got up. I got ready by clothing myself in my dreary grey school uniform and went downstairs to eat. “Did you hear about the chemical spill” my mother asked my father at the table. “Yes, a co-worker of mine was from there, his daughter was infected by the spill. They were transferred to our sector because she the air was contaminated, it’s a shame.” “What’s a chemical spill” my little sister interrupted. “Olivia it is not kind to interrupt” my mother scolded. Before my mother could continue the signal for students to report to school sounded. I grabbed my bag and an apple then left.
At school I walked to my homeroom, Mrs. Applemyer. The pledge came over the speaker “We pledge allegiance to equality, with choice comes destruction.” When that ended my teacher told us an announcement, “As you may see, we have a new student from the neighboring sector, would you please stand.” A girl with golden blonde hair and icy blue eyes stood up shyly. “This must be the girl my father was talking about.” I could tell she was drained probably from the infection. After that she sat and we resumed class. We started by studying the Great Fall, “It was terrible people, there was war, poverty, and starvation everywhere.” My teacher told us what we had heard probably like a million times before. “I you sure there was nothing good before the Great Fall, because you always tell us that there are always bad things but there is also good.” Oh great, sometimes I don’t know why the class clown Jake can’t keep his mouth shut. “ARE YOU TELLING ME POVERTY AND STARVATION ARE GOOD” my teacher screeched “If you are….I’ll be happy to keep you after” “N n n no” Jake stuttered. “That’s what I thought now class let’s continue.”
I couldn’t focus on the lesson, often I found myself looking back at the new girl, she kept her head down, and at one point I saw a few tears streaming down her cheeks. She looked about the same height as me as well. I wanted to go try talk to her. I was startled when I heard the lunch bell. “Wow…class flew by.” I was going to go sit with my friends when I saw the new girl sitting alone, I started walking towards her when I realized, “what am I going to say, seriously just think of something.” I was at her table now “Is this seat taken” I managed to spit out, she looked up startled “umm sure” she whispered. I sat down and saw she had been crying but I didn’t mention it. “What’s your name?” “Kyra, what’s yours?” she replied almost inaudibly. “I’m, Mitchelle, my Dad works with your dad.” “Oh.” “Would it be ok if I walked home with you?” She looked up in amazement with a small smile creeping onto her face. “Sure, I would like that a lot.” “Ok meet by the front bench after school ok, well I got to go to see you then.” I said as I got up. “Ok bye.”
The rest of the day seemed to go by like a snail, when the bell sounded I ran to the front bench and sat there waiting, it wasn’t until all the students were out of the school until I saw her tell-tale golden blonde hair. When she came outside she saw me and look surprised as if she thought I wasn’t going to be there, “You’re here.” She said with her shy smile. “I said I would be didn’t I?” “I guess you did, but that doesn’t mean you would’ve kept your word.” When I walked her home I realized that her house was the house next door. “Hey would you want to walk home with me tomorrow too?” “Sure” She replied as she walked into her house. At that point I guess we both realized that there was something between us. For the next few months we became best friends, we did everything together. The world seemed at last perfect until the night my father came back from work.[/left]
