John sat in the basement. Many people were excited.
A man with white hair and wild eyes was at the podium. He was ready to address the crowd.
“This world is a complicated place. There are many people around. Some are more pure than others. But we must think about the future!”
John wasn’t sure where this rhetoric was going.
“In order for the purity of this race to maintain we must be able to plan. The act of Love must not be taken lightly! There is a consequence! There is the continuation of life!”
“Only the CHOSEN among us may be the Seed-Bearers. A Birther can handle the seed of anyone. However, we do not want the seeds of the tainted to enter the Birther and pollute this world! Being a Seed-Bearer is the highest honor and it must be respected so we can maintain purity!”
Some of the men in the crowd were intense with their eyes. You could see they deeply wanted to be the Seed-Bearers. There were some other men at the gathering, men of a dark skin who did not look as happy.
The White-haired man continued. “We are under attack from all sides! As a people we must be strong! And the people that come after us must be strong! They must be a pure people!” There were men in the crowd who nodded in agreement. The men with dark complexion were not happy.
John Every thought within his mind, “I don’t know if this is the right place for me … ”
John slowly exited the basement. He could see that some of those men were ready to listen to the White-Haired man (no matter what he said).
