Generic Viagra Blue Pill 25mg

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg It’s time for the Literary Project!

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Thanks to Maria over at intueri, generic viagra blue pill 25mg a group of medical bloggers have taken on the following challenge: write a story of no more than 1000 words using the photo below as inspiration.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg I chose to go with a sort of sci-fi approach.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Isaac Asimov, generic viagra blue pill 25mg eat your heart out!

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg (In my dreams!!!)

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg If you like it, generic viagra blue pill 25mg I take all the credit. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg If not, generic viagra blue pill 25mg I blame it on finishing the story after being up for 24 hours!

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The title: ” A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”.

******************************

thousandwords

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Alecta sat with her head in her hands as her husband paced.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “Malec, generic viagra blue pill 25mg please stop. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Come, generic viagra blue pill 25mg sit with me. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The waiting is unbearable.”

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “Do you really think it would be any easier if I were to be still? When will they tell us?” Malec ran his hand through his dark hair. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “Why would this happen to us, generic viagra blue pill 25mg to our baby? What did we do to deserve such a child as this?

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “Oh Malec, generic viagra blue pill 25mg how am I to know these things? I am confused, generic viagra blue pill 25mg as you are.” Alecta sat up in her chair.” There was no warning, generic viagra blue pill 25mg no foretelling! Are we to question the ways of the Maker?”

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “I said nothing of the Maker, generic viagra blue pill 25mg Alecta. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg I would not presume to question It. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg ” Malec peered through the window. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The atmosphere was thick with transport vehicles. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “We’ve been waiting for over eight timespaces. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg It cannot take this long to know the truth.”

*****

Alecta had spotted Malec across the vast conference space during her technology indoctrination. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg He was striking in appearance, generic viagra blue pill 25mg impressive in knowledge. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg It wasn’t likely that she would match his social level, generic viagra blue pill 25mg so Alecta was surprised to discover that Malec resided in her sector. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg She introduced herself during a rest period, generic viagra blue pill 25mg under the guise of asking a question on class materials.

Alecta and Malec petitioned for a Committment Document soon after their meeting. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Following Sector Council approval, generic viagra blue pill 25mg they petitioned for a Child Selection slot at the Department of Genetic Reproduction, generic viagra blue pill 25mg or DGR.

They had reviewed their options carefully. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Many of the Committed were choosing android children. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg They could fashion their child’s appearance and aptitude, generic viagra blue pill 25mg plus modify personality traits. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Alecta felt that to be a cold, generic viagra blue pill 25mg impersonal relationship. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg She wanted her child to be a part of her, generic viagra blue pill 25mg connected to her biologically. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Her family unit had expanded in that fashion for millennia. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Malec’s family unit, generic viagra blue pill 25mg also. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg They were agreed.

*****

When they were formed, generic viagra blue pill 25mg DNA samples were taken from both Alecta and Malec and stored in the Department of Genetic Reproduction. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Now that they had been given a Child Selection slot, generic viagra blue pill 25mg they petitioned the Maker for a biological child. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Their request was granted.

Unlike the parents of android children, generic viagra blue pill 25mg they would have no say in the characteristics of their child. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The Maker would combine their biological material in a way It deemed appropriate.

*****

Alecta visited her child almost daily. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Malec accompanied her frequently. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Mechanical wombs were transparent and Alecta could see the other children as they developed. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Something was different about her child. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Others who had petitioned for a bio-child would peek over and look away or pretend not to notice. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Her child was marked on the right side of the face. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Alecta had never seen anything like it before. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The maternity workers did not know what it was. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Malec did not understand.

*****

The Maker had chosen to give them a daughter. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Malec chose to name her Prenya, generic viagra blue pill 25mg which meant “chosen one” in his language. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg He carried a pictoral representation of her in his personal folder. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg He would show it to colleagues and friends, generic viagra blue pill 25mg even strangers on the transitway. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg No one mentioned the mark.

One day an older woman was sitting near Malec when Prenya’s picture was presented. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg She took a fleeting glance at the picture, generic viagra blue pill 25mg blanched and then slowly pulled the photo over to herself for a better look.

“Do you understand the meaning of this mark?” she asked, generic viagra blue pill 25mg looking at Malec.

“No, generic viagra blue pill 25mg” Malec replied. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “Unusual, generic viagra blue pill 25mg is it not? We do not know the purpose. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Perhaps it is a genetic mutation.”

“Genetic mutations were curtailed thousands of years ago.” The woman said sternly. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “The Maker does not produce mutations. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Do you not read the Book? The Maker has given your daughter this mark for a reason.”

“What might that be?” responded Malec, generic viagra blue pill 25mg beginning to feel annoyed. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg She was one who treated the Book as though it were the ultimate truth. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg That was so 2560’s! He was glad that he and Alecta were of the enlightened segment of society.

“If you do not already know, generic viagra blue pill 25mg you will not believe an old woman, generic viagra blue pill 25mg” she said. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “The ancients once said, generic viagra blue pill 25mg ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Perhaps the thousand words you seek are in the Book.”

Malec exited the transitway and promptly forgot the crazy woman’s words.

*****

The time came for Prenya to be released from the mechanical womb that had been her home for thirty-nine weeks.

Alecta and Malec arrived at the Department for Genetic Reproduction ready to take their newly formed daughter to their habitat. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg They waited for their escort to the birthing chamber. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Instead, generic viagra blue pill 25mg they were introduced to two men in flowing robes. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Alecta was stunned. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg She knew these were representatives of the Maker. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Why were they talking to Malec in such serious tones? Why were they not taken to Prenya’s chamber?

“Malec, generic viagra blue pill 25mg speak to me! What is happening?” she implored after the representatives had gone.

“Alecta, generic viagra blue pill 25mg they think Prenya is the Chosen One, generic viagra blue pill 25mg” Malec said quietly.

“The chosen wha……” Alecta stopped mid-sentence. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The Book. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The mark. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The mark meant something, generic viagra blue pill 25mg but what? She tried to recall passages memorized so many eras ago.

“The One chosen to lead, generic viagra blue pill 25mg Alecta. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The Queen. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg It was written that She would be known by Her mark. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg They are testing Prenya now.”

*****

The door slid quietly open and the two representatives of the Maker stopped in front of Malec and Alecta.

“It has come to pass. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The Queen has been formed by the Maker and is now claimed by the Maker as It’s successor. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Your daughter bears the mark that was foretold in the Book. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The Maker confirms her identity.”

“The mark will be seen as a sign of beauty throughout the ages and your daughter will be revered by our people. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg This is an honor bestowed upon you by the Maker. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Queen Prenya is yours to raise and develop for eighteen time eras. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg She will then begin her reign as the Queen of the People.”

*****

On the way to their habitat, generic viagra blue pill 25mg Alecta and Malec tried to come to terms with what they had just learned.

“Raising Prenya is going to be such a responsibility, generic viagra blue pill 25mg” noted Malec.

“Raising a child is always a large responsibility, generic viagra blue pill 25mg” said Alecta. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “But the old woman was right. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Prenya’s picture was worth a thousand words. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg What we saw as a disfigurement was a sign of royalty.”

By the time Prenya was old enough to assume her role, generic viagra blue pill 25mg it was also a sign of beauty.

    I think the point you are making, about perceptions of beauty being guided by social status and perception, is absolutely wonderful and inspiring. The sci-fi approach fits perfectly.
