The Reaping: An Outrunning Short

By Jamie Dodge

Sci-Fi, Short stories | eBook

I woke up this morning to my father and Rex arguing. I knew this day was coming. The Reaping was here. I would be pulled from everything I knew and loved and be sent to live with the Outcasts. I'm afraid of what's going to happen. I'm afraid I'll never see my father again. I turned eight years old just a few months ago. It's my turn to go. A group of us will be loaded into the wagons and sent off to a place called the Palisades. I've never been outside the walls of the Citadel. I don't know what will happen to me. I'm so afraid. "The Reaping" is a dystopian short set in the world of Outrunning Perdition.
