Five Sentence Fiction – Candidate
“Is she asleep, Doctor?”
“Yes, she’s under and will awake with no memory of the procedure.”
“Her mate, Rowland, is… detained… and won’t interfere with our faery-human relations research—Eliza’s the perfect candidate.”
“Good… the fetus’ heart rate is normal; maybe we can determine if she conceived before or after she transformed into a faery.” The doctor paused, stared at the monitor, and said, “Vick will like these results—a half-breed is an abomination and will give him the excuse he needs to destroy Rowland and Eliza.”
This is part of a series I’ve been writing. You can read all about Rowland and Eliza here.
