What Is Cialis Professional

What is cialis professional It’s time for the Literary Project!

What is cialis professional Thanks to Maria over at intueri, what is cialis professional 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.

What is cialis professional I chose to go with a sort of sci-fi approach.

What is cialis professional Isaac Asimov, what is cialis professional eat your heart out!

What is cialis professional (In my dreams!!!)

What is cialis professional If you like it, what is cialis professional I take all the credit. What is cialis professional If not, what is cialis professional I blame it on finishing the story after being up for 24 hours!

What is cialis professional The title: ” A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”.

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

thousandwords

What is cialis professional Alecta sat with her head in her hands as her husband paced.

What is cialis professional “Malec, what is cialis professional please stop. What is cialis professional Come, what is cialis professional sit with me. What is cialis professional The waiting is unbearable.”

What is cialis professional “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. What is cialis professional “Why would this happen to us, what is cialis professional to our baby? What did we do to deserve such a child as this?

What is cialis professional “Oh Malec, what is cialis professional how am I to know these things? I am confused, what is cialis professional as you are.” Alecta sat up in her chair.” There was no warning, what is cialis professional no foretelling! Are we to question the ways of the Maker?”

What is cialis professional “I said nothing of the Maker, what is cialis professional Alecta. What is cialis professional I would not presume to question It. What is cialis professional ” Malec peered through the window. What is cialis professional The atmosphere was thick with transport vehicles. What is cialis professional “We’ve been waiting for over eight timespaces. What is cialis professional It cannot take this long to know the truth.”

*****

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

Alecta and Malec petitioned for a Committment Document soon after their meeting. What is cialis professional Following Sector Council approval, what is cialis professional they petitioned for a Child Selection slot at the Department of Genetic Reproduction, what is cialis professional or DGR.

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

*****

When they were formed, what is cialis professional DNA samples were taken from both Alecta and Malec and stored in the Department of Genetic Reproduction. What is cialis professional Now that they had been given a Child Selection slot, what is cialis professional they petitioned the Maker for a biological child. What is cialis professional Their request was granted.

Unlike the parents of android children, what is cialis professional they would have no say in the characteristics of their child. What is cialis professional The Maker would combine their biological material in a way It deemed appropriate.

*****

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

*****

The Maker had chosen to give them a daughter. What is cialis professional Malec chose to name her Prenya, what is cialis professional which meant “chosen one” in his language. What is cialis professional He carried a pictoral representation of her in his personal folder. What is cialis professional He would show it to colleagues and friends, what is cialis professional even strangers on the transitway. What is cialis professional No one mentioned the mark.

One day an older woman was sitting near Malec when Prenya’s picture was presented. What is cialis professional She took a fleeting glance at the picture, what is cialis professional blanched and then slowly pulled the photo over to herself for a better look.

“Do you understand the meaning of this mark?” she asked, what is cialis professional looking at Malec.

“No, what is cialis professional” Malec replied. What is cialis professional “Unusual, what is cialis professional is it not? We do not know the purpose. What is cialis professional Perhaps it is a genetic mutation.”

“Genetic mutations were curtailed thousands of years ago.” The woman said sternly. What is cialis professional “The Maker does not produce mutations. What is cialis professional Do you not read the Book? The Maker has given your daughter this mark for a reason.”

“What might that be?” responded Malec, what is cialis professional beginning to feel annoyed. What is cialis professional She was one who treated the Book as though it were the ultimate truth. What is cialis professional 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, what is cialis professional you will not believe an old woman, what is cialis professional” she said. What is cialis professional “The ancients once said, what is cialis professional ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. What is cialis professional 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. What is cialis professional They waited for their escort to the birthing chamber. What is cialis professional Instead, what is cialis professional they were introduced to two men in flowing robes. What is cialis professional Alecta was stunned. What is cialis professional She knew these were representatives of the Maker. What is cialis professional Why were they talking to Malec in such serious tones? Why were they not taken to Prenya’s chamber?

“Malec, what is cialis professional speak to me! What is happening?” she implored after the representatives had gone.

“Alecta, what is cialis professional they think Prenya is the Chosen One, what is cialis professional” Malec said quietly.

“The chosen wha……” Alecta stopped mid-sentence. What is cialis professional The Book. What is cialis professional The mark. What is cialis professional The mark meant something, what is cialis professional but what? She tried to recall passages memorized so many eras ago.

“The One chosen to lead, what is cialis professional Alecta. What is cialis professional The Queen. What is cialis professional It was written that She would be known by Her mark. What is cialis professional 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. What is cialis professional The Queen has been formed by the Maker and is now claimed by the Maker as It’s successor. What is cialis professional Your daughter bears the mark that was foretold in the Book. What is cialis professional 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. What is cialis professional This is an honor bestowed upon you by the Maker. What is cialis professional Queen Prenya is yours to raise and develop for eighteen time eras. What is cialis professional She will then begin her reign as the Queen of the People.”

*****

On the way to their habitat, what is cialis professional Alecta and Malec tried to come to terms with what they had just learned.

“Raising Prenya is going to be such a responsibility, what is cialis professional” noted Malec.

“Raising a child is always a large responsibility, what is cialis professional” said Alecta. What is cialis professional “But the old woman was right. What is cialis professional Prenya’s picture was worth a thousand words. What is cialis professional What we saw as a disfigurement was a sign of royalty.”

By the time Prenya was old enough to assume her role, what is cialis professional 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.
