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.

Kasei Bulloch: At the beginning I wasn't very into the story but I kept reading and was more hooked than I was with Battle of the Wills. All of a sudden I had devoured chapter after chapter then the book was over. I am dying for The Compact. Please help a girl out!

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...

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.

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.

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...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

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...

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

Remini UDA: I would like to firstly admit I do not like the romance genre, it's not something I tend to read and as such I did not complete the whole story and only made it to chapter 15. Whether that affects this review is for you to consider.The Unknown Variant is a very well written book, as a reader I wa...

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.

JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

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...

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!
