"Being married to a person you have never met before was common practice a long time ago. We think it's time to revive this old tradition, not for the sake of family alliances and money, but for the sake of the human race. We have to take care of evolution with the help of genetic compatibility algorithms. We have to make sure women get pregnant before they are too old. We are here to help you find the right partner, quickly.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the day of Revelation."

Out of the corner of my mind I am watching myself destroy my life; like a pervert, only with more scientific interest than actual joy. I think it has always been like that, me watching myself walk through life. That's what really sets me apart, the whole self-monitoring. I rarely pay attention to others. I don't learn much about people that way, only about me.
Maybe it's lucky that you found me now, and talk to me and not the spokesperson that controls my body. I guess sometimes you have to talk to the one in the backseat and not the driver.
Just to make this clear: I am standing on the sidelines, always. You cannot blame me for what happened. I will not feel guilty. Consider the following as nothing more than a testimony from a witness who was incapable of interfering.

"Oh, dammit, this is a disaster," curses Elisabet as she hurries down the narrow path.
The sky above her is a swirl of dark grey and dirty yellow, and a strong wind is tearing at her hair and clothes, almost stealing the breath away from her lips. Her shoes are not meant for walking in the rain, or for the pebbly terrain she is trying to cover fast right now, like no shoes available to her are nowadays. People are not meant to tread outside defined areas, and most of them don't. Except for Elisabet.
