I Don't Know Me

“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.

Nichole P. Conard: The characters are well created and pull you along through the story. The plot is well thought out, with some interesting turns. I was unsure what was going to happen, several times in the story, which is a grand point, as who wants to know they have figured out the story correctly...once they ge...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

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...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

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...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along. I hope there are more books to follow after this one! I like the way she describes how Rogue is feeling and the way she shows the emotions going through Rogu. I als...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.
