A Day in the Life
Sunlight shines through the stained glass window. I study the list of names, tracing my finger over the first.
A form appears in the chair opposite me.
‘It’s a little disorientating at first,’ I say.
He spins round, scanning left and right. ‘Where am I?’ Panic stings his eyes.
‘I’d like to collect everyone personally, but with population numbers this is more…convenient.’ I smile, touching his head.
His mind fills with his final moments.
I hand him a note, two words – ‘Rebirth or Serve’, written on it.
‘Choose,’ I say.
He points and disappears.
I move onto the next name.
