The Order of Things

Waiting_for_the_Machines_to_Fall_Asleep

The Order of Things was my contribution to the anthology Waiting For the Machines to Fall Asleep published by Affront 2015. The story takes place in a dark future where practically everything is falling apart. Among the less fortunate people, referred to as the Outskirters, lives Ida and her teenage son. Life is a struggle but not too bad until one day an incident changes everything.
