Pretty Ugly

Imagine a world without imperfection, no flaws, no errors or anything classified as a mistake. A society where beauty is more important than the individual. The law states that if you look at a Pretty while you're still transforming into one and you'll be imprisoned. Disobey a Pretty and you die. --- After a project called 'Deus Ex' spirals out of control, raises the question whether humanity's reach has exceeded its grasp.


9. Letting Go

Letting Go

An emergency hover drove past us. The emergency sirens faded in the distance as we stepped out of the car. Eerie shadows danced on the sidewalk as one of the street lights flickered on and off. My ugliness was briefly forgotten as I turned the corner onto the cemetery. 

My rugged shoes shuffling through the balmy night, walking as if I had just stolen a precious jewel. The putrid smell in the air and ravens cawing dulled in comparison to the memory of my dead sister.

A row of headstones that petered out in the distance welcomed us. Holograms of dead people popped out of each grave plaque.

"Do you like my red dress," asks the projection of a small girl as we shuffle across the concrete. 

I feign a smile. Daisy in the other hand looks down at her dirty clothes, wishing she could have a similar dress.

"What are we looking for?" Daisy suddenly grabs my hand.

"A refuge," I looked toward the horizon, "somewhere to start over. A place that we can call home."
