‘Of Homophones And Light Bulbs’ By S.J. Pendergraft

Nita is being being trained as a stenographer, learning all about taking notes. In fact, she was specifically born to do this task. During recess, she sits under a tree and wonders what her life would be like if she were allowed to leave the stenographers school, or at least what it would be like to say hello to the other children being trained at the engineering school beyond the fence, as none of the trainees are allowed to leave their schools until they graduate and are sent out into the wider world to fulfil their purpose.
