The Script latest update




Mrs Brown was a genetic engineer. Pushed by maternal

ambition, she, from the earliest stage of her pregnancy,

applied her expertise on her own daughter.


Consequent to this attention, her daughter was born

at the age of seven during the winter solstice, which

happened to be particularly cold that year. She called

her Louise.


Louise never knew her father


Mr Brown was a lightning conductor representative.

He thought he’d do well in London.


He was wrong.


He left during the third year of Mrs Brown’s pregnancy

and took residency in a country “at the measure of his

ambition”. He was never heard from again.


Mrs Brown had always told her daughter that her

father was professional cyclist who had gone to cycle

around the world and that maybe he will come back ;

one day.


Louise has always been dubious of this, even if since

then she became a fervent follower of cycling events.


During her childhood, Louise spent most of her time

withdrawn from any contact, devoting her time to restrained

and specified activities.


When it was raining, and it was often because it was

Great Britain, Louise use to take endless baths and

imagined all London disappeared under the water.


Her social interactions were restricted to the monthly

meeting of the her mother’s Genetic Engineers Club

(GEC), where she was the central point of attention.


The circumstances of Louise’s birth and the specificity

of her social community, gave her a precocious development

as well as an impenetrable self-confidence.


Louise spent the next decade focusing on her passion

for botanics, though her mother secretly tried to nourish

her interest in astrophysics.


Louise completed her PhD in Biology and Environmental

Science at the University of Sussex in collaboration

with Kew Gardens. Her diploma was composed of

the creation of two original specimens: the Kalhocactaceae

and the Sarracenia Calypso, new species of

hypoallergenic plants.


During a study on fossil plants, she discovered the

DNA of the Cryptoclidus. She created a specimen,

Mary, that she keeps in a fish tank.


Three years later, the family cat ate the miniaturized

dinosaurs toy given in the packet of biscuits and died.


Following this tragic incident, she decided that her

research on dinosaurs should never be published and

destroyed them.


As the fishtank grew smaller, Louise chose to release

Mary in a remote Lake in Scotland. She would always

be missed.


From that moment on, Louise went regularly visit the

sea otter of the London Zoo. During one of her visits,

she decided to put an end to her blues and to take up



The day before her twenty-first birthday, Louise placed

fourth at the regional 400m swimming championship.


Exactly one year later Louise left earth.

Louise was offered a place on Dorrado: an orbital selfsufficient

biosphere. She left at ten in the morning from

Kennedy space center, her mother was present at the

launch, overcome with joy.
