    • 5 Pages

    about a time I felt I was living the television show Cops. Cops is a reality show where criminals are arrested. I learned that the catchy title song “Bad Boys Bad Boys Whacha Gonna do When They Come for You’’ really means something after all. Being young, dumb and doing stupid things ended with me being arrested and taken to the Polk County Jail. I learned that by making the right choices I will never end up taking two steps back again. It was almost midnight on a hot July weekend and my brothers and I were out past our curfew; and the only thing that’s out at that time of night is trouble. We were young and wild and used to doing…

    the day. Having few friends at Captain Shreve High School, I spent the majority of my afternoons at my friend Stephen’s house. Stephen stood an inch taller than I at five-foot four with disheveled chestnut hair sewn with blonde highlights. As he was not from Shreveport, he didn’t have anyone he trusted, or knew for that matter, leading us to become tremendously close throughout middle school, and as I had no siblings, we had become as brothers. Though we now attended different schools, we vowed…

    high number, the scan was authorized. The Nano utilized for one lady was not ever acceptable, and yet, I stared at an override giving access for just that. One patient tested with the Nano. And the weirder thing, looking over the override, it was written in code. I merely deciphered it without even realizing, my gene giving me the ability. Now why would a higher-up need a Nano and then conceal the scan from rest of the medical community? I took out the possibility of a poisoned gene pool…

    Tap tap tap. I rolled over and glanced at the alarm clock. Its bold digital face read… 4:36. I had been tossing and turning all night, I guess it was my own fault for reading horror stories before bed. I flipped the pillow over and tried to go back to sleep. Tap tap tap. It sounded like someone knocking at the door. “Who the hell is out at 4:36 on a Tuesday morning?” I thought to myself as I blindly felt around the nightstand for my glasses. I looked over at Michael, envious that my…
