No. 76530

Again, another dream I had a while ago! (I have a lot of those don't I?)
Anyways, I don't know how this one came about, so I hope you enjoy the weird recesses of my mind!

Jill stood up in the line with the other students. It was a yearly thing. A government official and a few other important people, sometimes scientists, would come around to each school and scan your eyes. If you proved positive, you were taken away. 

No one knew where.

No one knew why.

It was something you didn't question. It just was.

She fixed her thick framed black glasses. They were sliding off her face again. Not that she was nervous or anything. She has been scanned for the past 16 years, and that's a good number to have behind you. James, a tall blonde, was standing next to her. He was cute in a boyish kind of way, but not Jill's type. I wonder what Lissie is doing right now.

The official people were about halfway down the line. Only about seven people were taken out of the line. Then Jill say them take Lissie out of line. Her heart skipped a beat as it jumped to her throat. 

No one she knew has ever been taken. Lissie was her best friend since they were small. Jill's world didn't seem so safe anymore.

It's amazing how long a life can be, and in an instant it can be shattered. Jill knew Lissie couldn't make it to where ever they were going to take her. Lissie was a simple teenager. Nothing is wrong with her, so why do they have to take her? It didn't make any sense whatsoever. 

Another girl was put aside.

Jill could see tears swelling up and pouring out and off Lissie's face. Jill knew that if she wasn't taken too, Lissie would die. She just wasn't strong enough.

She didn't know how she knew this. She didn't know anything. 

The scanner finally came to her. The green light passed over her eyes. A faint beeping sound echoed. They gently took her by the arm, and led her to the small group. Lissie wrapped her arms around her, thanking God.

The End
