IB DP-CAS Project: Unearthly Prisoner
Story and Cover Art by Franko
School life can be incredibly monotonous. The ritualistic repetition of routines and the expectation of consistent excellence steadily wears down the psyche. It does not help that the current state of society seems so keenly invested in success to the point where positivity can be turned into pointless preaching about abstract ideas of hope. This may leave a person feeling numb to the haze that is the world. But what if that haze was suddenly broken through? What would a person do if they found out their classmate is… not human? What if that same classmate also had the ability to give answers regarding the deepest problems in life? If you want to know more, read this story.
