The Future Children
In the cosmic planes, the future children laughed and played.
On Earth, an estate agent, Darlene, showed a young couple round a house. “It’s got three bedrooms,” she said. “Two for future children.” Darlene shared a smile of understanding with the couple.
Some years later, Darlene returned to value the house for sale. On greeting the couple, she noticed that the dimmer switch had been turned down in their eyes.
Darlene peered into the two spare bedrooms. One served as a study; the other was a home for gym equipment.In the cosmic planes, the future children sat quietly, waiting.
