Pale Yellow

Brielle was classified as a dangerous unknown form age 7 when the government officials couldn't decode her DNA codes. Forced to go silently and calmly by the government for a decade causes her to act out with a small bit of rebellion. To keep herself from being taken and locked up, she leaves to join the resistance and try to stop what she believes to be morally wrong.


1. I am Brielle Cherish.

It starts when you go to the Learning House the August of the year you turn eight. On the third day there, some government officials, or 2s, come to your dorm and hook you up to a machine. The machine scans your DNA and tells the 2s what you are predicted to do and how you will act in your future. Based on those numbers, they give you a classification. A number, 2-167. 2s are people who will be good authority or leaders, which is why they are the government. 7s are singers. 24s are skilled in marine biology. 100s can tame animals. And of the likes.

It's an exciting day to find out your classification. Unless, of course, you get hooked up and an alarm goes off and the 2s snatch you out of the machine and escort you to a locked room. Unless, of course, you call out of the dark night for your mother. Unless, of course, when they come for you in a few hours with a higher-level 2, you're are curled up in the corner of the white room, shoulders rising and falling as you sleep. Saltwater dried on your pale, blotchy face. Eyelashes dark and stuck together with wetness. Unless, of course, you then get banned forever from a normal childhood and are taken home in a flying storage unit, guards at the walls, watching the little girl, still in a schooling uniform. Yes, of course, if that happens to you, it most likely will not be an exciting day. Maybe to your peers who witnessed the extraordinary chain of events, but not to you. You would only be 7, youngest in the class, because your birth-time was December 31 at 11:11 pm. You wouldn't understand at the moment why you were being treated like this just because the machine couldn't read your DNA. Of course later it would be explained to you how it's dangerous if the 2s can't read your DNA. It's dangerous if they can't predict who you will become.

Yes, I was given the classification of a 0 at age 7; third day at the Learning house. I was the first 0 heard of in many decades, almost a century. So yes, ten years I've been confined to my home with my parents, Emi and Lon Cherish. For ten years I've been feeling glitched and defective. And for ten years, the globe's population has known Brielle Cherish as a dangerous girl, a 0.
