Brave New World. Lindas version of the New Mexican Savage Reservation incident.

Extracts from this document...


Transfer-Encoding: chunked Linda?s version of the New Mexican Savage Reservation incident When we first got off the early rocket at the Savage Reservation, I was full of joy, excitement at the fact that I was finally going to see the Savage Reservation. I had heard lots of stories about the place and I was drawn in when the first story had started. What was more was that I was going with the man whom I was with at the time.

Away from my life in the hatcheries. The social services then tried to look for me but at that point I was hidden away within the maze of the forest, hiding in a hut that I built.
