Oasis Humanity

Mystery / Scifi

Blurb

As the world is on the verge of over-population and famine, Ally Miller survives on little, with her Down Syndrome sister, Dianne. In the first assembly in years, the minister, Floda Reltih, introduces a miracle super food called 'Oasis Humanity'. With her sister becoming over-joyed at the introduction, Ally can't help being sceptical. It's not until Dianne gets kidnapped that Ally finds out about the real truth of this super food.

Chapter 1

As the ceiling lights flicked on in our room, the new day was dawning in Manhattan. As I rubbed my eyes, my legs swung off my single bed and my first job, just like every morning, was to attend to my sister, Diana. Waking her up took up most of my morning; Down’s Syndrome was a running trade in the Miller family. I walked over to the bed, opposite my own. My feet graced the polished white floor as the automatic voice spoke behind me.

The time is six… twenty-four… am. Good morning, Ally Miller… Good morning, Diana Miller.

As I tapped her bony shoulder, she turned in the sheets. I smiled and with an annoyed look, she crawled off the bed.

Please report to the main hall for assembly. Have a good day.

I helped Diana to her feet. I became concerned about this assembly; there hasn’t been one since before Diana was born. Dressed in our best, we headed for the assembly hall by scanning our identity bracelets on the handle.

Walking into the assembly hall, people were being signed to their seats by government officers. We were assigned to the seats, closet to the aisle in the second row on the left. Once everybody was seated, our beloved minister, Floda Reltih, took the stage.

Good morning, everyone. I trust you all have slept well. Now, there has an amazing discovery. As you all know, Manhattan is scarce of food but myself and a couple of colleagues have discovered a solution. ‘Oasis Humanity’.

A man appeared onto the stage; in his hands was a small container.

This super food is completely safe, natural and packed with nutrition and vitamins. This could be our saviour in our time of crisis.

The hall erupted with happy and interested faces. I wasn’t so easily overwhelmed.

Row by row, people began to collect their containers. Diana was overcome with excitement. I tried to smile but something was troubling me. I couldn’t help but think about where Ms. Reltih found this new ‘super food’. I didn’t want to appear apprehensive so I grinned with minimum uncertainty. In the midst of the excitement and relief, she began to speak again.

Oasis Humanity can be taken whenever necessary. Treat it as food. More supplements will be distributed over the coming days. That is all. Have a good day.

Diana ripped open the container when we got back to the room. The smell was the first thing that hit me; the smell was of a dying endangered animal, like a cow or a sheep. With a huge bite, Diana began to eat the cut of meat. Her Oasis Humanity had disappeared in five seconds. She, then, encouraged me to eat mine. Being the nice sister I was, I unpleasantly agreed. The meat was thinly fleshy but the smell was unforgettably grotesque.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

ElNachoWOTC: The grammar is tight and easy too read while packing a great vocabulary and you use a lot of vivid imagery with your words. One of the biggest things I noticed right away is the gritty realism you managed to cram into this book while going into a lot of exotic fantasy material. Including issue...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

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...

idk956180: Great story with an amazing plot and wonderful characters with very interesting back stories ,didn't stop reading until I finished it.Has a few a errors but nothing detrimental to the story. I'm very much in love with with the plot , it's the thing I found most impressive about this story, anyone...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

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...

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!

Dru83: This is a great story, mainly because of the uniqueness and variety of the characters. There's also several mini story lines occurring underneath the main plot. Some of the plot twists towards the end are unexpected and twist at your heart strings a bit. The punctuation and grammar could use some...

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...
