Every hundred generations, a child is born with extraordinary abilities. Super-heroes, if they use their powers for good. Blessing or curse, I was one of those children.
The powers are great. I have the strength of five men, can run faster than a cheetah, and best of all, I can fly. But not all physical attributes are so super.
Once, I ate a bowl of pea soup. The resulting gas was not only super-stinky but super-powerful. I launched myself into the stratosphere and set off seismographs in five states.
The government called it a seismic anomaly. Right.
Based on the Centina Pentina prompt: Write a story and use a title of another fiction story somewhere in your Centina or Pentina, linking to the original story and mentioning the author.
I chose the story A Seismic Anomaly by Rick Post, one of the first fiction stories I read on Medium back in February 2018. A Seismic Anomaly is a tale about brothers and tunnels and the surprising thing they found underground. I encourage you to read it.
