Josie's Coat: A Romantic Sci-Fi Retelling Novelette

Patchwork Press
4

A woman with shoulder bones as sharp as an eagle’s talons—bones almost protruding from her skin—opens her mouth as wide as it’ll go, impossibly wide, consuming the pill that takes both of her arms to cradle. The nourishment makes her thin stomach pop out like she’s pregnant with a child so large it’ll burst through her stomach. She swallows slowly and licks her lips. Her eyes search around hungrily for more.

That dream again.

Josie is skilled at her job as an “unfortunate” who inhabits the bodies of her clients to perform their work while they sleep, but her coworkers’ cruel jealousy over her success leads to her enslavement and the loss of her dream-worker status. A YA sci-fi reimagining of the tale of Jacob’s favorite son Joseph, his dreams, and his famous coat.

“OMG, this was absolutely amazing! Meimi is badass, brilliant, and snarky... And the setting! The world described is very dark and technically advanced with super interesting sciency stuff, aliens, and tons of mystery.” - Diary of a Wannabe Writer

I’m Meimi Archer, your regular high school science geek for hire. Sure, it’s dangerous to create high-tech gizmos for a criminal overlord called the Scythe, but it keeps Mom and me safely off-grid. Ever since the Authority took over the United Americas, you either live inside a domed city (where you’re watched 24-7) or you scrape by on illegal money while hiding out in the sticks. Guess what category I fall into?

Long story short, everything's fine until I screw up a job. Badly. My home slips into two-dimensional space-time. It only lasts for a few seconds, but the move still sets off about a dozen government alarms. If they track me down, Mom and I are good as dead. Now I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe. Fast.

That’s when a hottie named Thorne materializes in my kitchen. He’s about my age, wears black body armor, and says he came to “this version of Earth” from another planet. We share a bizarre mind-meld moment before he vows to do anything that ensures I survive.

Hey, I’ll take all the help I can get. Plus, Thorne has dimples...

“This kept me on my toes ... Be it random science, opening portals to new dimensions, evading capture, doing shady deals with crime bosses, betrayal, the humdrum of school with Lead Camper Dave (snicker), to hot (alien) man-candy sent to help save the day. Pick this up and expect to get sucked in to the Dimension Drift.” - Smada’s Book Smack
