|The voices of young - The 5th trillionaire|
Three years after the ozone layer of our planet had completely healed, my two derived clones named Nova, Echo and I moved from China to Australia. We are actually living in the same fully automated home with our great-great grandfather Kieffer and his defrost youngest brother Anakin. He is only 15 years old and he is the center of our family.
Having a knack for writing and helped by Anakin, Echo started an audio book series. Due to her talent and al the detailed information that her youngest great-great grandfather furnished, she became the 5th trillionaire by the end of 2075. Her audio books were the first in the human history having a better selling than the Bible.
“I bet that before the end of 2080, you could at least take the place of the second or the third trillionaire if you’ll start the process of translating the books in few more most popular languages.” Nova said.
“Thank you for the advice, Nova! I am pretty sure that it will be a piece of cake since we become more interested to discover how people from the beginning of the 21st century and before it were living their lives.” Echo quietly replied to her sister.
What I did not mentioned is that Echo and Kieffer are mind linked. They are mentally and emotionally capable of communicating, sensing and using each other’s knowledge, skills and language. That why, even though her great-great grandfather used to be a very close member of the family, he managed to disappoint his great-great granddaughter by stilling all her writing ideas and using them for his own good and fame.
“How dare you?” Asked Echo angrily after she randomly found all her ideas drafted on the papers he had forgotten on their kitchen table.
She felt stabbed in the back by a dear one, by the closest member of her family. She is completely deceived by what just happened and that she cannot trust anyone no more.
Kieffer replied to Echo that he just wanted to start a new family on Mars but he did not have enough capital to buy a land and become one of the first colonists.
“The profit I would make with all your writing ideas will permit me to live a very decent life.” Kieffer responded to her without no regrets.
The reality is that her great-great grandparent strongly felt in love with a cyborg that is totally controlling him. Nova felt it and was in a total disagreement with the idea that her 89 years old great-great grandfather built a new family with a cyborg. The fully humans, we all know that bionic people are working for the governments and only decide to interact with us when they are sent to spy or control us.
To conclude everything I said in that short story, I will estimate that with all these virtual beings living as avatars, the concept of family could very well come to an end.
