Warehouse 13-C

“Let’s go. Let’s go. The cargo’s not gonna load itself.”

The admonition rang out through the warehouses.

I was still in my first week of loading duty. Typically a morning person, the midnight shift was rough for me. That’s how it was. The train came in in the middle of the night. We loaded it. It left for parts unknown.

Warehouse 13-C seemed to get the most attention. Not that I minded. It was the closest to the train, the easiest load.

“What’s up with 13-C?” I asked Decker, a warehouse veteran.

“Asian girls. They love their Asian girls.”

    1. I had a sci-fi ending trying to force me to write it in, but I resisted. Something in humanity’s genes is defective.

      I didn’t mean to trigger you. Sit down, breathe into a paper bag, suck on your thumb, and don’t do anything for a month but complain about being triggered.

      1. We could breed humans, like we do dogs. Only those with desirable traits can pass on genes and others… put out of their misery.

        Wow, after all this time you think I’m a SJW… 😀

      2. I wasn’t referring to an Aryan race, or Hilter for that matter. I was trying to say it might be nice if the humans could breed genes that promoted compassion and kindness. Violence and cruelty breed out. We already eliminate “inferior” foetuses with birth defects. Cruelty should be treated as a defect.
