Excerpt From Chapter One:
Mora used to stick the needles between her toes...that was her favorite place. She did that to hide her track marks as best she could. Mora has a very visible job and needle marks aren't part of the optics package. Running a Youth Organization required her to be in the presence of many parents and executives on the daily bases. Mora's facility was full of children and employees, but she was focused on something else. Huddled under her desk, all she could think about now was this hit of heroin that she just took.
Her brain floods with dopamine, an electric rush of intense pleasure and then the infamous nod. The euphoria doesn't last long, her skin is beginning to become red and flushed, the heaviness is already here and a dry mouth comes next. Mora attempts to moisten her mouth and smack her lips together. The pasty dryness on her tongue is unbelievable as the hit descends. The less pleasurable feelings associated with heroin seeps in; like the extreme itching, nausea, and vomiting.
Years later, Mora is still addicted to heroin but things have changed since the onset of "Digital Drugs". You can't build up a tolerance to Digital Drugs because they are never entering your physical system, so each high is the first high. Digital Drugs are unique. They're sound waves that are sent and received digitally and audibly. "Digital Drugs" is listened to via special headphones, earbuds, or Bluetooth.
Digital Drugs are sound waves that manipulate the brain's activity and gives the recipient a euphoric feeling of being high. During their using episodes, it can even give the user particular sound waves that trick the brain into believing that they are tasting, smelling and having other sensations associated with their brand of drug. Different audio clips offer a different high sensation.The dealer only needs one version of each type of drug clips and can re-sale that coded clip millions of times over. The sale of the drugs is completely digital. It can be purchased with digital currency.
We hope that you have enjoyed this teaser! This was just a taste of what's to come. Our hope is to grow the stories submitted to our site into a movement. Women of color will be a force within the SciFi and Futurists communities.
