“P lease, I beg of you, find mercy and allow my wife a nd daughter passage to your new society.” I’d never seen my father cry before. His eyes were red and cheeks tear-stained. “I can’t do it,” the man holding a clipboard said. He was the intake coordinator, the one accountable for who goes to the new government cities. Everyone else would likely die. Starvation is the most likely factor, but it wasn't the only way to go. There was exposure during the cold nights, disease was rampan t, not to mention the predators lurking in the night and not the wild animal variet y. The world had become a sick and perverted place. “How old is the girl?” I heard the intake coordinator ask, glancing me over. I held my breath and stood tall, afraid my fear mig ht give the truth away. Besides, if I looked and acted confident, wasn't that enough to fool the man with the clipboard? “Eighteen,” my father lied. A law broken was punish able by death in Cabal. I bit down on my tongue.

Who knew if there would be a second opportunity in two years or ten years' time? We traveled for weeks on foot to make the checkpoint. I would do whatever it took to enter the facility legally. “How was she conceived?” the intake coordinator ask ed my father. “The Three Parent Project.” This time he didn’t lie . There was no need. A natural birth hadn’t happened in several decades. Only the government had access to the resources for fertility and childbearing. Children were precious in our world. I was one of t he first successful children born by the Three Parent Project, IVF therapy which invo lved swapping part of one female DNA with another. As part of the project, two mothe rs were used, giving the best chance for natural fertilization. Everything about the Three Parent Project worked except to cure future infertility. As a test subjec t, my parents and I were assured passage into Genesis when the beginning of our new civilization was formed. The only problem, new people came into power. The cities’ re sources were limited and the
