I Don't Know Me

New Rules

“Brian, how does she know it’s not him?” Private Moss asked.

“She just knows.  She always knows."

“But I’ve had the same training and I can’t see any mark. I’m looking right through the scope.  There’s nothing on him.  Can you see anything?” 

“No. The equipment doesn’t work on people like him.  That’s why she’s in charge. She doesn’t need the equipment.  She has her instinct.  And that’s why we follow her.”

“I don’t mean to be annoying sir but this is my first life-crime arrest and I’m nervous.  I didn’t think this was still possible … for them to hide from all the sensors and equipment.”

“Be quiet rookie.”

“C’mon. You’re not curious? She’s the only one in the division that’s an Original. Well, that’s what they say.”

“Shut up.  She is an Original.  She’s the only one who made it through all of the protocols … hell she established the protocols. And until anyone else is found, she’s the only one.”

“Right, I get it.  I’m just … I’m about to propose to her or something.  I’ve never been around an Original.  I’m slightly aroused to be honest. Have you ever been around one or is this your first?”

“No. I never have.  Listen, if you keep talking I’m gonna shoot you.  Just relax rookie.  Let her make the signal and we’ll go in to clean up any runners.”

“Ok sir. Don’t shoot me.”

“Well don’t make me.”

“Hey is all that shit true about what she did on her first day at the precinct?”

“What shit do you mean?”

“You know … the part about her being naked and killing everyone?”

“Oh that shit. You’re a bit curious huh?  You better be careful about that rookie.  People have died for an emotion like that.  But yeah it’s true. I was there when she came," Brian said while gripping his gun.


Curiosity is a strange emotion. It’s one of the emotions that is most sought after because of its potency.  It’s hard to find though because things are so very different now.  In today’s world there is a new way of feeling and understanding things for most people. Today we live in a place filled with a very strange set of rules.

People no longer steal televisions or cars.  You don’t have to worry about hiding your jewelry anymore.  You don’t have to invest in the latest alarm for your home because there are no home robberies.  None of your things need protecting in this new world.  No one flocks to their retirement planners in hopes of investing in the latest mutual fund to secure their future.  Planning for your future is a waste of time.

What people steal today instead is the very life you have.  They steal you and that’s how they secure their future.  Like I said, the world is different now.  The people in it are strangers amongst strangers. No one knows who they are or were.  

Life-crimes are the new thing and your emotions are the new high.

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Jason Phang: The author embarked on a path less taken and focussed on the bombers instead of the fighter pilots that usually were considered the stars of the air force. An amazingly​ written book highlighting the ups and downs of war, the internal turmoil of a high ranking officer getting himself into the thi...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

spooky jedi: Love your story!I really hope more people read this story!Its amazing!! The plot is very unique and different, which is very good to have in a world full of stories. You have very complex and intellectual plot line, with your many loveable character and that hint of 'will they, won't they' is ju...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...
