The Inkwell’s Half-hour Challenge theme for April is “Honey”.


“Ah, Miss Arbeiter. Many thanks for coming back again. Please come in and take a seat.” Mrs Wache wafted Karen Arbeiter towards a chair set before the desk and then slid herself into the rather grander chair behind it. She continued “Since your last interview, we’ve been doing some checking of your history, as we said we would. We’ve established that you are Jenny Queen’s daughter and Erica Queen’s half-sister.”
“That’s right, yes” answered Karen.
“Well that’s good” said Mrs Wache, with a smile “all of our workers are either sisters or half-sisters. I’m sure you know this. Erica is one of our best.” They smiled at each other.
Mrs Wache continued “Now I have to ask you a rather personal question. I hope you don’t mind. Can you confirm to me that you are a virgin, please?”
“I am.”
“I never doubted it for a moment but I do have to ask, you understand. All of the workers at the sperm service are virgins. Again, I’m sure you’ve heard this from your sister. Right; good. So now let me give you an overview of your duties, should you choose to take up the position we are offering. You will be out on the road, making calls on domestic premises in the area and receiving semen donations from males. Then you will take the semen to other domestic premises and donate them to females. You will collect food from the females and bring it back here to head-office. The food part is very important: no food, no semen donation. We need food here to feed all of us: workers, security, admin, the boss, everybody. Does that all make sense?”
Karen nods.
“Right, that’s all good. So how soon can you start? Oh, can you dance, by the way? It’s how the girls like to communicate, you know. We’re very busy; always very busy.”

    I didn’t register the picture first and had to re-read…felt like sci-fi in the first read…really clever!

I will be pleased to read your thoughts, even if you don't agree.
