Six Sentence Sunday – Gotta have that look 10

August 26, 2012

Remember to check out the full list of participants over at the Six Sentence Sunday home site. In the world of the future, anybody can use genetic treatments to look exactly how they want – or can they? Thanks to everybody who’s given me feedback so far.

First Six. Second Six. Third Six. Fourth Six. Fifth Six. Sixth Six.
Seventh Six. Eighth Six. Ninth Six.

When I went back for my booster shots on the growth spurt and muscle builder, my chin already looked different, and I thought I could feel a change in my biceps too. This time a girl gave me my shots – she was blonde and really pretty, and I couldn’t help but notice her engagement ring. She left me sitting alone in the privacy room after, saying that she’d be back to check on me in ten minutes.

I counted to sixty after she left, then used keycodes I’d downloaded onto my pocket-Smart to unlock the ‘Employees only’ door. It didn’t take me long to find a supply cabinet with a half-full box of hypodermic vials marked ‘Bright green eyes’ and a long formula reference that I didn’t understand.

I knew how to re-sterilize myself, though, and inject myself with a fresh needle.

Have a great week, everybody!

It’s still all about teenagers and sci-fi cosmetics, genetic tech to modify bodies for the sake of looking good.

First Six. Second Six. Third Six. Fourth Six. Fifth Six. Sixth Six.

“What about the eyes?”

“You’ll look great with green eyes, kid; the girls will be all over you.”

I only wanted one, I thought, but smiled as he put the needles to my arm and took what he needed.

When the sales rep came back into the consultation room, there was a trace of jowls around his cheeks that hadn’t been there before. “Jimmy, I’m so sorry.”

“What’s wrong?”

More cookies for everybody who comments!

It’s still all about teenagers and sci-fi cosmetics, genetic tech to modify bodies for the sake of looking good.

First Six. Second Six. Third Six. Fourth Six. Fifth Six.

I cleared my throat, brought out the pocket-Smart, and then with a shrug I just let him see the list. It wasn’t like I really had a problem talking to strangers, but that seemed easier. He scanned the list and tapped a few things on a monitor screen that was turned away from me. 

“Okay, we’ll have to test if you’ve still got growth spurt potential, but we should be able to get you to your target height in about three weeks. Do you mind if you get taller, later? Your body might have its own ideas about when it wants to grow?”

Since the cookies for comments deal was fun last time, I’m continuing it for this week. 😉

First Six. Second Six.

So, we’re continuing on with my little story about teenagers playing around with their ‘look’:

“Stephanie came through when I asked her to.” With his other hand, Bry produced a pocket-Smart with a short list typed on the screen. “Your recipe for winning the heart of Diane Black.”

I felt really awkward about this, but excited too – and slowed gradually to a stop so that I could focus on the words better.  “Green eyes, she said first,” I read. “So they’re important to her?”

If you feel moved to post a comment or a response, I will be so very grateful! 😉
