✨️WATTYS 2023 SHORTLIST + AMBYS Top Pick, Science Fiction! ✨️ | Gio, a man jailed for a crime he didn't commit, becomes an augmented human in exchange for his freedom, only to question his sacrifice when he becomes thirsty for revenge.

*****

The plan was simple:

Go in through the front doors, demand the money from each of the drawers, and escape with the getaway car before the cops arrived.

That plan crumbled in less than five minutes.

Giovanni only took part in the robbery to pay for his daughter's kidney transplant. But after he was arrested, then sentenced to life, he lost it all.

He wouldn't see his daughter grow, start school, or fall in love. He'd miss every step of her life while wasting away in prison with what was left of his.

So, when Paxton, a blossoming cybernetic company, approached his cell with a proposition, Giovanni didn't say no. In exchange for becoming their experiment, he'd get to see the sunlight outside prison walls. He'd get to see his daughter's smiling face.

And he'd get to find his "friends" who ran away with his freedom.

'The Qur'ān and Modern Science' by Dr. Maurice Bucaille 'Dear Reader, There is no compulsion to accept the truth, but it is certainly a shame upon the human intellect when a person is not even interested in finding out what the truth is. Islām teaches that God has given mankind the faculty of reason and therefore expects him to use it objectively and systematically - to reflect and question and reflect some more.'
