Inktober 2019 Drabble #9: “Déjà Vu”

With a few button taps, Tecna gathered the data around Nex’s head into her phone.

“Now to upload it,” she said.

A ribbon of code streamed into Nex’s visor. After a few seconds, he started to groan and wince, and the ribbon abruptly snapped.

Tecna frowned. “Something’s blocking the transfer.”

Aisha peered down at Tecna’s phone. It played a video of a middle-aged woman yelling towards the screen.

“Nex, pay attention!”

“I‘m trying!” a young voice whimpered.

“Try harder! Lazy brat!”

Aisha clasped her hands to her heart. “Is this…a memory?”

Tecna nodded. “He must have recently remembered it.”
