So this is the second run of the electric dreams contest. This time you are prompted to write an original story in the perspective of the first child born in natural childbirth in a society that for the last 300 years consisted of sterile clones. (one male one female version). By some miracle (you choose what it is) a clone gets pregnant and the baby is not a clone. Take it from here and let's see where it goes 😊 waves @moneyinfant

The First Place Winner will receive 5 Steem and 1/3 of the SBD this post generates.

Second Place will receive 3 SBD and 1/3 of the SBD generated from this post.

Third Place will receive 2 SBD and the remaining 1/3 of the SBD generated.

A big thank you to @henry-gant who donated the Steem portion of this contest 💜
