“Please, you have to help me!” The doctor kept on walking as Mimi begged behind him. “Please, I don’t want this. I don’t want this. Not now.”

He turned on his heels. “You know I can’t. It’s against the law. Has been for seventeen years. If you didn’t want it, you shouldn’t have consented.”

“Please, Doctor Sooe. I can’t raise a child, now.”

“It’s hardly a child.”
“It’s still human!”
The doctor spat onto the hospital hallway tiles.

Slowly his pace slowed, and without looking at the girl he began to speak, “We don’t have the drug anymore. Even the dealers refuse to supply it. You know the sentence…” Mimi nodded, praying what he said next would get rid of the thing inside her. “There may be something I can do.”

“Anything. Any price.”

“Fine,” he said, and without warning brought a blade out of his hospital files and slashed the girl across the stomach.
“You know it’s the death sentence for fraternising with the aliens,” he said, as she lay bleeding slowly on the clean hospital tiles.

    Very nice! I knew there was a twist coming, and you didn’t disappoint. I have to wonder what sort of abortificant is so terrible that even dealers won’t sell the stuff.

    I expected a twist too, maybe something less dramatic like just the fact that it’s an alien. This surprised me in a big way though, and I like surprises.
