Trifecta: Womb to Let

Trifecta: Week Eighty-Nine



This week's challenge is to write 33 to 333 words using the following definition of the word WEAK:  not factually grounded or logically presented.


This segment of Blind Obedience completes the background of the covert program Firefly, begun by the CIA, in which Elias, a military officer recruited at the inception of the program, has been trained to implement the program's guidelines on his soon-to-be-created "asset". Previous segments of this story can be found here:

The training manual to raise a generation of “designer operatives” complete, Elias impregnated his wife. As soon as it was known she was pregnant, the fertilized egg that would be his child was inseminated into the surrogate. The underground had its own supply of “slaves”: children, teens, adults who were not missed by society. They were gathered from orphanages in places of war or where an agreement was made for financial gain, from prisons, the terminally ill, street children, the homeless, those born into cults whose births were never registered. The healthy women were kept to be bred and used as surrogates. They were property of the governments who held them. The ones not suitable for other purposes were used to traumatize those who were multiple or becoming multiple.

Witnessing the horrific torture and deaths of such people became seared into the young minds. At the moment of peak terror, the programming messages and signals for the purpose of the particular personality called out for the trauma would begin. Trauma, ritual abuse, and scientific precision along with training went hand in hand. One did not work without the other. Horrific trauma was essential to a well engineered multiple. 


While other mind control programs were proving fruitless, nothing was weak about the plan to develop the children of Firefly to be unwitting and perfectly mind controlled adults.

Words: 226

  1. This is definitely a nightmarish, horrific world you are revealing to us. Unfortunately, there are far too many people at the margins around our world who are used and abused, unnoticed, and forgotten. As fictional as your story is............

    1. Thank you, Tom. I appreciate your coming back. Yes, I was worried that it had to go one more level deeper before anything else could be told. Hopefully the daughter's story will be more interesting living a double life.

  2. What an awful existence. Being raised for mind control is a scary prospect.

    1. If the children have amnesia, they have no idea they are mind controlled. They only know/see "normal". Until the crash of the amnesia, it's oblivion. Awful existence in hindsight. Sort of like it doesn't hurt until it's known.

  3. Tom's comment was pretty much spot on. Although this is fictional, there are places where this actually takes place. It's at times like this I remember to be thankful. Wonderful piece - looks like it affected everyone!
