A continuation of last week‘s tale…

Bizma’s class trip the museum had left her with many uneasy questions about the war, the demise of monetary systems, the lack of adult humans, the bots that watched over them, and what would happen to her and her classmates as they graduated and went to prom.

“Why is my prom dress hanging off the balcony?” she asked parent-bot agitatedly.

“Wevk spilt water on it; I’m letting it air dry.”

“Where will Bizma go after prom?” little, teary-eyed Wevk asked.

Parent-bot didn’t answer; did not give any indication of the impending doom that awaited the girl bot raised from infancy.

  1. I hope the impending doom is nothing more than the dress having a white spot!

  2. Jan Brown says:

    Reminiscent of “Logan’s Run,” but with life ending at an even younger age. At least they celebrate with one last dance.

  3. I do so hate impending doom!!

  6. yik… dystopia can be so enerving… I’m not sure I want to see what the impeding doom is (extracting of brains I guess)

    A different take, a great read.

  8. Dear Jenn,

    A unique take on the prompt. I see I’m not the only one who thought of Logan’s Run.

    shalom,

    I know many proms end in doom, but usually the doom is some overdramatic teen-aged exercise.
