Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story, about a genetic enhancement gone awry, begins after the photo.
Genre: Science Fiction/Humor
Kerry joined the old rancher at the fence overlooking the beautiful property. “So. You ready to buy another Intelligent Horse?”
Gabe chewed on a grass leaf. “Don’t know about that.”
“Why not? They can talk to you. Understand complex instructions. What could be better?”
“Yeah, but t’other day, Lindy threw his rider off.”
“Lindy Lou? I don’t believe it. He’s such a friendly horse.”
Gabe spat. “I don’t think he meant no harm.”
Kerry looked furtively for a creeping lawyer. “So what happened?”
“Well, Lindy was havin’ so much fun galloping, he hadda stop suddenly and update his Twitter account!”
Author’s Note: Yes, I know there’s a double-negative in here. But you get what Gabe was saying and saying it that way fits Gabe.
