He was a nice guy with a nice Mormon girlfriend, right up until he came out of his outhouse and found he could heal plants and people with a touch. Nothing went right after that. Some Baptists wanted to kill him, the police wanted to arrest him, the mormons wanted to make him an icon of their faith. All he wanted to do was get married. Some gifts came with a price tag that was too high to pay.

Derived from the stories of FrankSpeaks in SOL
A story loosely based upon the "Frank's Post Apoc" Universe from SOL. Lots of radio, a family group and how they handle the depopulation (to a great extent) of the world in west Georgia, USA. This was originally posted for me by Frank Speaks but I feel confident enough to go forward here (not comfortable with some of SOL). Please enjoy. RG
I have gone over the story and am reposting it to correct errors and bring some issues into line with the rest of the stories. :-)

An Australian schoolboy discovers he can move small objects with his mind. His family moves to Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA and he uses his special skill to 'win' money at casinos. His exceptional skills at winning bring him some unwanted attention from some people, including the Department of Homeland Security. He objects to their actions and soon a state of war exists between his family and the DHS (and the people behind them). The odds are heavily in favour of one side - but which side?

A man is killed by religious militants while protecting his fellow workers. He unexpectedly wakes up to find he's been abducted by aliens and they have an offer for him. He accepts the offer to be placed in an environment like Earth was 35,000 to 40,000 years ago, complete with animals and humans of that time. But there's a catch, it's a one-way trip and he's a star in their version of a reality broadcast show. They supply some gear to help him survive, and now it's up to him to do so.
