A Better World

100 Words of Speculation written over a background of fountain pen and printed text

The Akathi gave us unlimited clean energy. And then the murders started.

At first, no one connected them; one more death a week somewhere in the world. Then someone noticed the pattern: torn apart by nails and teeth; no attempt made to hide the body, but never any witnesses.

A few whispered about the Akathi. But we had no proof and each victim was depraved: rapists, abusers, murderers. So, we treated it as a price for our better world. Until the first video.

Ordinary people turning on a man and tearing him apart, then acting as if nothing had happened.
