2075 (Book 1: Realization)

by G. R. Henderson

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to live your life in the year 2075? Well, it might not be exactly as you imagine. If you have ever wondered what it would be like if women had all the power and ran society, you might want to give 2075 a read.

Men can no longer even control the TV remote without their wife’s approval. How did this happen and is it a good thing? Could it change again in the future or is everyone satisfied with the way things are?

Dyan Dillon has everything she could possibly ask for. She has a wonderful husband, Jason, who satisfies her every need, a beautiful house in Seattle and a great job. What’s more, she’s young, beautiful and can have pretty much any man she might choose from the husband pool or the â??untrainable’ group. But all is not quite as idyllic as it might seem. The plan she has for her future depends on Jason and his continued obedience. But when a rebel sympathizer named Emily enters their life, the comfortable status quo begins to change, dramatically

Come in from the Seattle rain, light up a cigarette and grab a cheap copy of â??2075′. Let your imagination run wild; the results may make you chuckle.

Excerpt:

New York State 1880

“I don’t have to stay in this house another minute longer if I don’t want to!” Lorna yelled, her brown eyes flashing fire, her hands on her hips as she confronted her foster father.

“Oh, yes you do young lady! You just act as if you’re going to walk out of this house and I will lock you up so fast it will make your head spin!” Phillip said harshly, his brows knitted in a frown, his lips a tight line across his face. He reached and grabbed Lorna’s wrist in a powerful grip and she gritted her teeth as pain shot up her arm. She tried to jerk away, but he was too strong and she could not free herself. “You will stay in this house and do exactly as you are told!” he said slowly, between his teeth. Suddenly the fight went out of Lorna and she sagged and hung her head, gazing meekly at the floor.

“I’m sorry Uncle Phillip. I don’t know what came over me, I suppose I’m just tired.” she stammered and would not look at him. He relaxed his hold and with his other hand tipped her chin up, forcing her to look at him. She fought to control her emotions and her anger as she looked into his eyes. Phillip saw the clear unwavering stare and it made him nervous, but he would not let her see how much she had upset him. His heart ached for this person who had changed from a thin ragged girl to this beautiful, full- bodied woman, changed from a pitiful orphan roaming the streets, eating from garbage cans and sleeping in alleyways. She had bumped into him eleven years ago and he grabbed at her shirt in anger, jerking her around to face him. He had been staggered by the doe-eyes that looked up at him in fear, then changed to the eyes of a tigress as she jerked away. He had grabbed her again and held tightly.

“Here girl! What’s your name? Where are your parents?” he asked, holding to her clothing.

“None of your damn business!” she screamed at him, then kicked at his shins and fought to free herself from his grasp.

“Hold on girl! I’m not going to hurt you, I’m not!” She looked up into his eyes and he saw her fear vanish.

“What do you want with me? I didn’t mean to bump into you.”

“When was the last time you ate young lady?” he asked and he saw her eyes light up.

“Come, we shall go to my home and have a hot meal would you like that?” he asked. And she nodded her head “yes” and that was how she came into his home. And now she stood here defying him, desperate to be out of his life and he could not understand why.
