Summary: "We remember everything.  Every. Single. Detail."





*****

People often talk about how it's the little things they remember best.

A smell.  A touch.  A color. A feeling.

Transgenics don't get that luxury.  We remember everything.  Every. Single. Detail.

All in Hi-Def living, breathing, color.

I'm sure they - the humans - would be jealous if they knew this was possible.  Dumb humans.

Sure, if I had a mother, then maybe I would have that perfect memory of being pushed on the swing set on a beautiful summer day.  I would recall the exact shade of green that the grass was and how sot it felt on my feet,  I would remember the sweet, tangy, smoky smell of the neighbor's bar-b-cue and the deep richness of his laughter as his friends stood around and told jokes.

But none of that ever happened.

Instead I remember with perfect clarity the sight of my terrified brother as he was dragged away by the guards, fighting as best he could in his mid-seizure state.  I remember the exact pink color of the twisted pink bracelet I had given my sister from the thread I had found in the outside yard, and the near death beating she had received for wearing it.  I remember the warm, coppery smell from the blood of my first unwanted kill and the aftertaste from my vomit mere moments later.  I remember each detail from every horrible moment of my existence.

My Transgenic brothers and sisters all wonder why I'm crazy.

All I wonder is, why arn't they?

Fin.

This is wonderful! That last line is particularly eerie and poignant.
