Chapter 1

Marrissa loved walking in the park. The sun warmed her, made all of her worries melt away. She liked nothing better than to be alone with her thoughts. Right then she was thinking about if she should get a cup of coffee. However, these thoughts were interuppted by her best friend Aredesa.

"Marrissa!" She called, waving her hand to get her attention. "Marrissa wait up!"
Marrissa stopped and let her friend catch up to her. Aredesa had her hair in a braid, the golden strands coming loose from the do.
"Hey." She said just as her disheveled friend reached her.
"Marrissa where were you?" Aredesa asked breathlessly. "You were supposed to meet me at Mocha Michelles an hour ago!"
"Oh no." Marrissa groaned, hitting her forhead with the palm of her hand. "I am so sorry. I totally forgot about the project!"
"It is okay." Said Aredesa. "Guess what happened while I was waiting for you? A guy asked for my number! And he was rather cute."
"Cool." Marrissa replied. Suddenly there was a flash of light just out of the corner of her eye, toward a grove of trees. She whipped her head towards it. She swore.......
Never mind, She thought, It is just my imagination running away with me, even at 16 years old. I need to stop with this foolishness.......
Suddenly there was a hand waving in front of her face.
"Marrissa? What are you staring at?" Asked Aredesa, concern plain in her voice.
"Oh nothing." Marrissa replies, shaking her head as she turned to her, smiling. "Let's go."

Jonathon brought his blade down upon the creature and it came away soaked in the green goo that passed for its blood. He shook it off in disgust. The beast had been following him since he got off the subway.
"Nice. Must be a new one." Said his buddy Mark, who came out of the brush with his gun drawn.
"Yeah." Replied Jonathon. The creature was a grotesque combination, having the head of a snake and the body of a beetle. "What do you wanna name it?" He added, nudging it with his foot.
"I don't know." Mark said, tilting his head. "Beatlesnake? Not very creative but.... it'll do. Come on. We need to get back to base."
"Alright." Says Jonathon, sheathing his sword. They took off running, hiding between the trees and slipping through alleyways. Jonathon loved running. It made him feel free of this accursed place that they named Eutopialis. They being the Peacemakers.
They ran this place to their own twisted design, so perfect, at least to them. Jonathon and the Resistance were the only ones who had noticed what was wrong with it. The Peacemakers had changed everything. It all started with the program Safety 54, originating within the USA and spreading throughout the world. They had these chips that were implanted within the base of your neck, and it stopped all the crime in the world. How? By targeting your nerves in your brain that controlled decision making, making you do good instead of bad.
But there developed a problem, at least among the veiws of the people. Everytime they upgraded the chips, the people became more like robots. Every time, a peice of their personality was taken away, and replaced by something rehearsed, robotic. The people who noticed it took it upon themselves to stop it. Therefore the Resistance was born.
"Are you coming?" Mark asked, pulling Jonathon back out of his head. They had reached the Base.
"Yeah." He replied, and they went inside.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!
