Dinosaur Farm Reboot

By Eric Samuel Olson All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Scifi

Paleogeneticist Family Life

In Rockwall, Texas there is the Dinosaur Farm. It is a zoo that consists of genetically resurrected dinosaurs.

In the living quarters of the compound in the middle of it lives its biggest shareholder - a teenager named Eric Samuel Olson. He lives there with Sarah, his wife and two infant children. He also has a pet juvenile T-Rex named Baby Godzilla.

He named Baby Godzilla after a stuffed animal he had as a child. Baby Godzilla is six feet tall and seventeen feet long. He enjoys poultry and steak.

It has been proven that dinosaurs are cold-blooded reptiles. There is no direct lineage to birds. DinOlson, Inc. is also known to be an intelligent design company. Their codes of ethics are Christian-based and so they ban cloning humans.

Violators of this code would either be scrutinized or imprisoned. The chief geneticist, Dr. Irene Dawk, is under constant scrutiny for cloning her husband in an attempt to re-animate the deceased. Though her husband was successfully cloned, she promised she had ceased all work on the project.

She was spared incarceration because she was a grieving widow and a single mother.

At the end of summer, it was time for Eric and Sarah to start high school again. Bus Seat Bub drove them across the dinosaur farm in a tractor trailer.

After Eric and Sarah exited the main gate, they waited for the school bus. When they arrived at Sachse High School, they were in for a bad welcome.

They saw Mindy Kasder. Sarah remembered her as M.K. and Eric remembered her as Mega-Mindy.

Mindy had been Sarah's enemy since middle school and had been Eric's enemy since Little Red Schoolhouse.

Mindy laughed, mocking the teen couple.

"Wow, Eric and Sarah together, the two dinosaur geeks I've known for a long time. Hey Sarah, are your twins baby dinosaurs?"

"They're a happy and hearty boy and girl," Sarah replied. "The only dinosaur thing about them is that they share a playpen with a cloned T-Rex."

Mindy laughed. "Well, wouldn't your babies be breakfast for the T-Rex?"

"Dinosaurs are human intolerant," said Eric. "But I wouldn't expect an ignoramus like you to know that, M.K., or should I say, Mega-Mindy."

Sarah said, "I like that name better than M.K. It certainly describes your megalomania."

Mindy responded, "Well I don't like it. So I suggest you two geeks stop calling me that before I have my friends on the football team gang tackle the two of you."

Sarah asked Mindy, "You're allowed to mock my albinism and Eric's Asperger's, but we're not allowed to mock your megalomania?"

"Your cheer captain has spoken," said Mindy.

Then Mindy left, making her evil grin.

Later on, Eric and Sarah had a conversation about Mindy. "What was the worst prank she ever pulled on you, Sarah?" asked Eric.

"I guess when she tied me to the scarecrow post," Sarah replied. "I started being called Messiah girl, How about you?"

"I guess the time when she snuck a beehive into the air vents and sent it after me after dropping a bucket of honey on me," Eric said. "Apparently she discovered I'm an apiphobe, which is an irrational fear of bees. It was the worst and scariest thing that ever happened to me at Mary Moss Elementary."

"How did you come up with Mega-Mindy?" asked Sarah. "And how did you get away with calling her that for so long?"

"It was in first grade," said Eric. "I was the only kid who knew what megalomania meant. And that was back when she didn't have as many friends and supporters. I guess she got a lot more popular in middle school, when I wasn't around."

"And that's when she started bullying me," said Sarah.

"Now that we're both here in high school, I guess she figures she can bully the both of us," said Eric.

Sarah sighed. "Talk about trying to kill two birds with one stone."

Eric consoled Sarah. "Don't worry. I'll be the first to get hit by whatever stone she throws. You're my wife, Sarah. I'd lay down my life for you."

Sarah kissed her husband on the cheek as a sign of affection and gratitude.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.
