Josephine Baker Quote

After earth is visited by a glowing alien life form, our DNA is mapped out in intricate designs on our foreheads and faces.  We fear what this might make us.  Food, sheep, marked for death, blessed, doomed, or chosen.  Is it a gift or a curse?  In a whirlwind of events, the world is changed, shattered and then evolves into the Utopia we’ve always dreamed of…or is it?

NOTE: This story is just for fun and something I do as a personal project.  It’s not professionally edited so it will contain plenty of grammar & spelling mistakes.  You’ll simply have to suffer through that as I don’t have the time nor money to rectify it. Besides…Goddammit Jim, I’m an artist not a professional writer!
