The Story:

In the near future, a totalitarian system exists which exports young people born with special gifts and superior intelligence due to genetic conditioning through an International Human Capital Market where they are discreetly traded.  Two young lovers Bethany and Rowan must fight for their right to love, their right to exist and their right to live in a world together that will not accept their relationship and insists on separating them when Bethany's exportation date becomes imminent.  Written by Jill Thrussell.  

Synopsis

The year is 2030 and a new world power controls and manages the world and a new totalitarian system has been implemented world wide and leaders are allocated by the main world power to rule individual nations.  Human beings are now regarded as assets which countries trade openly on a market called 'The International Human Capital Market'.  Children and childbirth must be licensed and authorised by the government of each nation and once a child is eight years old, their career path and vocation is identified through a process called 'Allocation'.  Once you are allocated you must comply with your chosen career path and if you are flagged for 'Exportation' at the age of eighteen, you are exported to the country that has been identified as your 'Recipient Receiving Nation' but those who are not flagged for 'Exportation' are never allowed to actually leave their country of their origin.  Each country in this new world order is governed by companies but as each corporate country seeks to capitalise & Export their most prized assets human beings, genetic modifications create segments of young people, due for Exportation that rebel and are uncontrollable.  A young couple fall in love but since Bethany is due to be Exported from their corporate country and Rowan isn't, a battle for the right to live, the right to love and the right to love each other in a world that forbids it rapidly ensues.

Every potential export is gifted with a unique genetic gift and there are ten identified gifts that most Exports posses in various degrees but the rarest is Predictionary Insight which Bethany actually possesses an abundance off.  The gifts make the young people who possess them exceedingly valuable to their exporting nation and hence they spend most of their life in a protected environment.  Due to Bethany's father's position however, she is more exposed to the outside world than other Exports which leads to the development of a forbidden relationship with Rowan who is not due to be Exported.  Bethany and Rowan fall in love and that presents not only them but also their families with a predicament when Bethany's 'Exportation Date' approaches. 

Once Rowan has decided that he cannot allow Bethany to simply be Exported, he persuades her to run away with him as they attempt to avoid the 'Enforcers' who come for 'Exports' in the middle of the night and remove them from their families, loved ones and friends.  In order to avoid the 'Enforcers' who constantly hunt down any 'Exports' that have rebelled against their 'Exportation Date' the two seek out those who oppose the 'Exportation Movement' known only as the 'Hidden' and find a secret, underground network established and run by a man called Slade who offers them both sanctuary.  When the two became part of the 'Hidden' however they are then thrown into a game of survival as they pit their skills and intellect against the 'Enforcers' who are always on the hunt for runaway Exports.  Suddenly, the two find themselves in the midst of a fight to live in a world where love can banned and where your life can be dictated by the highest bidder as Exports have no choice and so Bethan and Rowan then have to fight for their right to love, their right to exist and their right to live together, in a world that will not accept their relationship and insists on separating them.   Written by Jill Thrussell.  

Tagline: Every life has a price.

Quotes

Sometimes in life the things that hurt us the most are not what people did to us, they are the things they did without us. ~ Jill Thrussell

Sometimes in life the things that hurt us the most are not what people did to us but the things they did without us. ~ Jill Thrussell

“Perhaps the common cold doesn't want to be eradicated, maybe colds enjoy the company of human beings. Perhaps colds are a virus that don't believe in divorce.“ ~ Jill Thrussell

“Bethany when your consciousness is placed inside a body that has a predetermined path, sometimes you'll like that path and at other times, you'll absolutely loathe it.“  ~ Jill Thrussell

“Since the day I was born people have told me what and who I should be, for once, I just want to be who I really am.“ ~ Jill Thrussell
“We live in the same world but two very different worlds.“ ~ Jill Thrussell.
"Find the people in life that celebrate you, not the people in life that merely tolerate you." ~ Jill Thrussell
"Perhaps the common cold doesn't want to be eradicated, maybe colds enjoy the company of human beings. Perhaps colds are a virus that don't believe in divorce.“ ~ Jill Thrussell
Elaborate social friendships made very little sense, when both parties knew that their relationship would end at a pre-determined time, before they'd even started. ~ Jill Thrussell
“Rowan had smiled at me with his flashy,provocative grin and I’d fallen straight into crushery, fast and hard. Crushery is that special place where you know you have a crush but you don’t dare admit it to anyone just yet. Sometimes you don’t even admit it to yourself.” ~ Jill Thrussell
“I’d arrived at the moment I dreaded for so long. My final assessment was now going to be made. I would be scientifically analyzed, prepared for trading on the human market and deported. Within me I yearned to resist, find a way out.” ~ Jill Thrussell
“Deep within part of me despised them for this. I despised them. I despised the system.” ~ Jill Thrussell
“I despised that the love between Rowan and I was somehow deemed impure, dirty, by a system that deemed it wrong and unlawful.” ~ Jill Thrussell
“Could human beings be purely logical? Could we live a life without love? Could we be functional beings just existing to fulfill the requirements of the higher powers who governed our world, our nations and our lives?” ~ Jill Thrussell
“The Enforcers came for you in the middle of the night I heard. To avoid complicated emotional complexities with distraught families. They took you and you never came back. I hated them. I hated this. I hated their system. I hated the world they had created.” ~ Jill Thrussell
“You know Rowan I'm just trying to find a right in this world of wrongs.“ I murmured as I gazed up at his perfect face, searching for answers within his smile, wondering earnestly, if he could provide the right I was yearning to find. “The world we live in doesn't make sense. Nothing makes sense.“ I explain. ~ Jill Thrussell
“I'm a Walker." Darcia explained as she walked around the room and smiled at Bethany sarcastically. "If I just touch anything your DNA has been in contact with, I can walk amongst your thoughts and manipulate them. If I really wanted to I could take your 'lesser' Rowan in two minutes. Your so lucky Bethany he's not my type, though he is starting to grow on me.” ~ Jill Thrussell
“I see things in two ways Curran, I can look into your eyes and see events from your past, present and future." Bethany explained. "I can visualize things or I can feel them. The only problem is I can't utilize my gift with anyone I've had any kind of physical contact with.” ~ Jill Thrussell
“How can your fate be decided before you've even begun to live?" Bethany asked Rowan as she gazed into his eyes, her voice heavy as it carried the burdens of illogical circumstances and the paradox of irrational realities, her own existence the root of a complexity her mind simply couldn't comprehend or accept. ~ Jill Thrussell
“I have to accept the fact that my parents rolled a dice when they agreed to modify my genetic structure." Bethany explained. "They ignored that one day perhaps I would have desires of my own. They sacrificed my right to choose my future, before I was even born. I have to live with that everytime I look at them.” ~ Jill Thrussell
"Bethany!" Slade replied as he gazed into her eyes and smiled reassuringly at her. "Your life is more than just the sum of your parents choices and mistakes, you have the opportunity now, to live it, savour it and change it. Don't take that chance for granted, it may not arise again and you never know when the flames of freedom may be extinguished.” ~ Jill Thrussell
