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.
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...
Rita Kovács: It is a brilliant post-apocalyptic story, and there is a lot of work in it! Also, I'm really happy to see, it got published with all its seqences, because this story deserved it, it is wonderfully written, it's imaginative and original.
Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.
Sammy Styles: It is one of those stories that keeps you on the hook till the last moment. A roll of pictures were piling up and with continuous moving, it was like I was watching a film. The scenes were dramatic with a bit of every emotion. The story contains every essence of mystery, romance and adventur...
Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...
Jodee3596: I really did like this story. Lacey Amanda Jones is very well written. It's a story about a girl who didn't like who she was but wasn't really sure how to change that and still get what she wants. Then there's Finn. What or who is he? Her gay BFF, some stalker guy who takes pictures of her or the...
Jim E. Johnson: Rarely do I find a mystery that peeks my interest, but Jack Huber's Pat Ruger reminds me of Parker's Spenser or Spillane's Hammer! Strong character with the right connections and plot drivers to keep anyone engaged and never putting it down.The encounters of the characters Ruger engages, continue...

Warren Bull: I thought this was a fast=paced thriller with elements of several other genres woven seamlessly in. It hooked me early and held my attention throughout. I liked the humor and surprises along the way. I really enjoyed the novel. I am not a big fan of romances or paranormal works,but when those ele...
Jordano Quaglia: I was taken to the future, to the shock of worlds among the people in the underground versus the mutants. The characters are well defined and rich in details, as I felt that I empathized well with them and envied their adventures while being scared by their predicament. It i a world that I would ...
