The Demise of Steen Hig
Steen Hig was born in the 26th century. The computerns who tended the human incubator nests had high hopes for Steen Hig. People did too, or what was left of them since the plague. Steen’s DNA had been microfactured to rule an empire not of people but of computers who masqueraded as people.
When Steen turned 31, the ceremonies were performed; his implants activated — while his tearful father watched. And just like that, Steen Hig became a god.
Yet it was only a knife that brought Steen Hig to his mortal conclusion.
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely,” his father explained wiping clean the knife.
Hey that was fun! You ought to give it a try Dear Readers! Have a great weekend!
Until next time . . . I love you
