The Escort

The crew of the sea-king helicopter “Poseidon” escorted the lifeboat back to shore. This was no longer a rescue mission but a sign of respect for the passengers on the boat.

The sixty five people plucked  from the icy waters after their boat had capsized, now lay in body bags on the lower deck. Most were pregnant women and young babies, but among the dead were the two navy seals who had managed against all odds, to help them escape their prison.

There were still countries that believed in the freedom of women. Where they were not locked behind bars and bred like cattle to supply the next generation of “workers”.

The strong males were weeded out and given the best care available in 2095. Weaker males were left to the women and reared for lesser posts. Female offspring were chosen based on the fertility of their mothers, those who did not make the grade were simply eliminated.

The Arian nation of Macho was preparing to take over the world, unaware that they had already been invaded..
