The Dealer Chapter: The Ties that Bind


Still, downtown One completely harmless but protected in his parked ESS, a dated but reliable

was never Mason felt Honda Avio hovercar. He focused on scanning the prices, quantities, news and any other information even vaguely related to Elix – the hottest commodity on the market.

The streets of Urban One were drenched from a downpour that lasted the whole day. They were also safer. Even criminals don’t like to work in the rain. Mason had managed to get in early when it was still going through human trials. The famous breakthrough experiment by André Janowski in 2027 isolated the minute and highly complex chemical in the brain responsible for lifespan.

Illustrator: Spencer Whittle It was named Elix. By understanding the breakdown of the chemical, Janowski accurately determined the natural lifespan of a human subject to within weeks. A good diet, regular exercise and a lack of stress was shown to slow the deterioration of Elix but the quantity of the life chemical was finite; even the healthiest specimens of any species die eventually.

Art Director: Jade Manning

Writer: Jeff Harvey

But within two years of its discovery, the technology was developed to extract and transplant quantities of Elix in various animals, extending the recipient’s lifespan and shortening the donor’s. The animal trials were successful and life extensions were proven to work. Soon after, extended lifespan was accurately predictable to within days.

The Dealer Chapter: The Ties that Bind


Mason shifted his gaze from the commodity data to the time - 17:37. Tony was late. He was curious after receiving the message that morning on his cell.

By 2029 the first human tests were approved, controversially allowing certified suicidal adults to legally volunteer their Elix to recipients of at least 110 years old. The animal tests had been conclusive but only when human recipients started to exceed 130 years old did belief in the technology reach critical mass, boosting the popularity of the process.

Tony feathered the reverse thrust breaks and came to a standstill, hovering just above the now almost dry road. The wheels emerged and the vehicle touched down. A shorter than average stocky man climbed out, walked over and met Mason with a knowing grin and a firm grip.

Mason, how are you?

Mason had been banking on that popularity, speculating on Elix prices for the last three years and earning a modest profit in the process.

The irony was, he would have made a lot more selling three years worth of his own Elix and been able to enjoy the fruits instead of working 16-hour days and neglecting his daughter like the workaholic, single father he swore he would never become.

But he knew he could never start selling his life. It was a slippery slope; he didn’t want to end up like another Elixdepleted multi-millionaire, all set to die in his mid-forties. “Life begins at forty” had taken on a whole new twisted irony in the last few years with a hedonistic generation who had sold their lives. But it had never appealed to him. He wanted to make his money the old-fashioned way: doing a hard day’s work even if it was trading other people’s lives for money on anonymous digital markets.

The Dealer Chapter: The Ties that Bind

They had first met at Saint International, a trading house specializing in speculative new technologies. For a long time, they were just colleagues, but as the years passed they became good friends. Circuit Road was a U-shaped potholed strip of tarmac in New Hope, an old industrial zone of Joburg, with a few aged terrestrial cars and trucks parked on or near it and pedestrians using it as a thoroughfare heading home after work. Mason’s shiny light grey hovercar was parked next to a long-forgotten fourstorey clothing factory. Its weathered brick walls were patched with graffiti and some of the windows were broken. A large metal door and a scanner guarded the entrance, situated near a corner of the building. pedestrians passed close to his Avio, trying to avoid a puddle, activating a gentle female voice warning them to keep clear. It was just starting to get dark when Mason heard the dull, slowing ebb of a Nissan Seamless descending. It was about 30 metres up, spiralling the steam from the drying tarmac below, sending a pedestrian couple scuttling for cover. Its repetitive beep grew louder, warning anybody below to stand clear. Mason admired the vehicle, wondering if Tony had bought it cash. Tony was a successful man if at times morally questionable.

No complaints. How are things?

Never better. How’s Geneva?

She’s okay. As well as can be expected. Turned six last month.

So what’s with all the cloak and dagger stuff?

Return the favour by getting me mixed up in some shady deal?

time flies, doesn’t it? Sorry Mase. What I want to show you is not exactly kosher, but its going to make a lot of money and I thought I’d let you get in on it early, you know, seeing as you helped me get my first break at Saint.

There’s always risk, Mase; it’s just a matter of managing it. You’re here now, at least come have a look.


Mason sighed.

It was a waste of time, but he decided to humour his friend.

A row of coffin-like capsules housed a sleeping, naked baby in each.

They stepped up to a door with an eyescan lock next to a container-height roller-door footed by a ramp. Tony leaned in to face the scanner, resting his chin on a curved support.

The digital displays on the capsules glowed blue, while transparent and red liquids flowed in and out of each unit via various tubes.

The door opened with a click. They stepped through the doorway into a dusty space. Ancient fluorescent lights flickered to life, revealing a short wide passage to a goods elevator. Tony lifted the access bar and stepped onto the elevator platform, despite the warning in black print on yellow: CARGO ONLY NO PASSENGERS

If this is what I think it is, you could end up doing a lot of time and I could get in trouble just for being here... ...You’re farming clones?’

Mason climbed on and felt a shudder as Tony pressed a plastic green button. The lift descended but it was in no hurry. Eventually it jolted at the bottom and with a brief loud buzz the bar across the front was released. They stepped onto a concrete floor and were met by a large L-shaped room with a white tiled floor and concrete walls, covered with screens and computer equipment. As he negotiated his way to the rear of the room, following Tony, Mason realised he didn’t want to see what he was seeing.

ROOIKOP ZOE WILLEMS

In the early months of 2009, an energy saving light bulb lit up over the head of Johannesburg creative, and fiery redhead Zoe Willems. Why not give the plastic shopping packet another chance to shine? So she started cutting out all kinds of images, shapes and colours. Once arranged in a design the packets become the unique fabric of high-end fashion accessories like bags and purses. The concept is one where everyone wins. You get your hands on a one of a kind accessory, all the while giving Mother Nature a little less to worry about. Check Rooikop out at: www.rooikop.co.za

DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN BE CREATIVE WITHOUT BEING IN ADVERTISING? NO SHIT, ITS TRUE. WE COULDN’T BELIEVE IT EITHER. SO EACH ISSUE WE’LL BE BRINGING YOU SOME INSPIRATION FROM THE VERY “FRINGES” OF CREATIVTY.
