The Catastrophe Theory: A Progressive Story

Remember back in school, when you would write a sentence then pass it to your friend and they would add on?  You would take turns until some crazy, odd-ball story was created then you would giggle as you read the insanity of said story?

Well, we authors still do that.

The Hunt For Tomorrow was the digital scavenger hunt that led readers through 23 author stops and ended with an immense grand prize.  Part of that prize pack was letting the winner choose certain facts that we authors would then create into a progressive story.  

And we are doing it.

Each day, a new author posts a new chapter to the story, solely based off what has been written before.  There has honestly been no brainstorming, no planning.  Just a little bit of banter and the facts given to us by the Hunt winner.  We read the new chapter, then the next author has 24 hours to create the next installment.  That's it.   

It is insane.  We have no idea where this is going.  And we are loving it.

Today is Chapter 7.  And it is my turn.  
If you have already been following along, read away.  If you are just getting started, go to Chapter 1 and enjoy!

The Hunt For Tomorrow (Stop #8)

Welcome to THE HUNT FOR TOMORROW, a virtual scavenger hunt through 22 fictional dystopias.
Stop #8

by Jenni Merritt

In the Nation, no one is innocent - not even the children born behind bars. Millie 942B has spent her entire life locked away with her criminal parents and countless other inmates. She believes in the Nation, in its strict laws and harsh punishments.

But when Millie is released on her eighteenth birthday, she finds things are nothing as she was taught. People vanish, never to be seen again. Lies cover every word. Trust is as fragile as ice.
And then there is Reed. Born and raised outside the Prison walls, his dreams and thoughts cause Millie to doubt everything she has ever believed.

What is truly worth fighting for? If she pushes too hard, she could lose her freedom. If she stays silent, she could lose herself. The clock is ticking, and Millie must find the truth before it is too late.

QUESTION: Who causes Millie to doubt everything she has ever believed about the Nation?
