Picture it & Write

Waking with a start, she clawed at the film, realizing her entire body was molded to a hard metal surface. Her screams reverberated in her ears as she struggled. This was wrong! Wrong, wrong, wrong!

“Hello?” she called, “let me out!”

The film didn’t impede her breathing, but that didn’t make it any more enjoyable.

“This is wrong! She’s supposed to be here, not me!” She screamed.

Doctor Abraham promised her a perfect clone, a source of blood, tissue and organs if she ever needed them, but something had gone horribly wrong. Tears stung her eyes as she clawed at the film, a scream ripped from her throat when someone turned out the lights.

In the real world, the people in her life were heard commenting on the change, saying it was like she was a whole new person. Once cold and cruel, she was now warm and caring with a bright life ahead.

    Oh that is disturbing. Were you the Jodi Picoult reader? This reminds me of one of her novels, but I can’t remember the title off the top of my head.

    Haha, I know a couple of people I wouldn’t mind cloning like this!

  3. Ha! Being cold and nasty doesn’t pay. Good one.
