The Report

Social Experiment No. 65: the last attempt by scientists to unravel the limits of the human mind in the age of freedom and the ever expanding universe. Since birth, Eliza Stuart was locked into the four walls of her own fabricated home with only her mother for company. As far as Eliza knows, that is the universe.
'The Report' is small selection of daily reports which have been gathered and collated as the last surviving documents in the experiment, and these slowly reveal Eliza's life, the lies she is fed, and how ultimately, you can never shut off one human mind from the universe. For the Might there be more than this? competition. 3892 words. Cover VERY kindly made for me by Luke J.R :)


13. Postscript

Eliza Stuart was discharged from hospital on April 9th 2014, diagnosed with depression and mild anxiety. She received counselling for two years after and completed her doctorate in mathematics at the same time, crowned Dr. E. Stuart by the age of eighteen.

She appeared publicly several times after the kidnap with both parents: Thomas, who she had previously not known, and Helen. She spoke of Social Experiment No. 65, her trauma and experience with Dr. Kemp, and concluded every time by forgiving the Kestrel Studios. She struck up a correspondence with Max Worth in the following years, although was never a close friend or good acquaintance.

Dr. Kemp was never sent to jail. Eliza testified in court that she had not been kidnapped and that, at the age of 16, she was in her legal right to go with him. She remained close friends with Dr. Kemp for many years after, until her unexplained disappearance in 2026.

The following message was received by Dr. Kemp on December 23rd 2028 on the back of a postcard.


I've now seen Africa, America and Asia and am sunbathing on an Australian beach. Given up on maths: I've been headhunted by NASA and thought I oughtn't turn it down. Remember those stars? I'm heading to them!

In the meantime I might settle here. Merry Christmas!

Hope you're well,
