Test Subjects

The nurse walked down the corrider, passing the sealed doors that housed the test subjects, the detritus of human life who offered nothing to society. They had been given the opportunity to contribute something meaningful to mankind’s future as the experiments being conducted on them would result in the knowledge needed to protect humanity against the invaders. Humans needed to adapt and evolve – the outcasts would help with the knowing of how.  The nurse entered a cell, needle ready. The girl inside turned, magnificent in her added height and strength. She no longer needed the treatment.

What do you think happens next?

  1. Oh boy! I sense trouble is on the way for those researchers. Nothing good can come of that. I’ve seen too many movies that ended badly because of that. 😀

    Well written as usual Colline. Excellent story line. ♥


  2. Great story. This is very sinister with a horribly cynical attitude of the experimenters. It is also mysterious, who are these invaders? What happens next? I guess the ‘subjects’ want a little revenge.

  3. I think the girl will take advantage of this opportunity to overpower the nurse, lock her in the cell, and possibly give her the injection (depending on what it was), then she would make her way to freedom. With her new strength, she could harm, help, or something in between. Perhaps the rest of the story would involve her struggle to decide.
