The Freaks

Welcome to America, 2148. 135 years ago, in 2013, scientists and doctors offered a service providing "designer babies". The rich and famous altered their children to visual perfection, and as generations went by, flaws virtually disappeared in upper class families. As the procedure became more affordable, the middle class followed. Replacing upper, middle, and lower class, the three major social groups are divided strictly by physical appearance instead of wealth. The Elite: Perfect, tall, long haired-blue eyed girls with supermodel figures and guys with perfectly toned muscles and green eyes. The Freaks: Edgy, strange, designed and ordered by parents who wanted to make a statement, or test just how far genetic alterations could go. The Casuals: Anyone born without genetic alterations. The big question- What will you choose?

“So what? You're another person, so of course you look different. What do you need to be ashamed for?” 

-Yana Toboso

The girl was 7 years old. But old enough.

"Mommy, why am I different?" The girl spoke softly, nuzzling her mother.

"Because, darling."

"But why? I don't understand."

"You're different because you're special. You're unique."

"But I'm not pretty."

"Now who told you that?"

"One of the blond girls. I don't know which one. They look the same."

"Exactly! They're just jealous. You stand out, and that makes you more beautiful then they could ever be."

"I love you, mommy."

"I love you too, Kitty."
