Born to be organ donors

In the bustling metropolis of Shanghai, two friends named Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi navigated the harsh realities of a society where human clones were raised to be organ donors. Wei-Lin was a carer tasked with looking after the donors as they prepared to donate their organs, while Ling-Yi was one of the donors, struggling to come to terms with her limited time left to live.
Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi were two ordinary children selected to attend the private school called Willow Lake at a young age. They were chosen because they had a rare genetic trait that made them suitable candidates to become organ donors later in life.
As children, Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi lived a seemingly everyday life at Willow Lake, surrounded by lush gardens and fields and given the best education and care available. They were protected from the outside world and told that their lives had a higher purpose, but they were not initially aware of the true nature of their meaning.
As they grew older, Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi began noticing minor educational discrepancies. They were not taught certain subjects, such as reproductive biology, and were prohibited from leaving the school grounds. They also saw that the students at Willow Lake were not allowed to form close attachments with each other, as they were told that they would eventually have to leave the school and go their separate ways.
Despite these oddities, Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi enjoyed their time at Willow Lake and formed a strong bond with each other. They spent their days exploring the gardens, playing sports, and studying hard in their classes. They were happy and carefree, unaware of the challenges that lay ahead.
It was not until they reached their teenage years that the full extent of their purpose as organ donors was revealed to them. They were told they were special, chosen to save the lives of others and to make a difference in the world. But as they learned more about the process of organ donation and the limited time they had left to live, they found it increasingly difficult to reconcile their fate with their dreams and desires.
As the two friends grew older and their time as donors approached, they were forced to confront the harsh realities of their society and the sacrifices they must make. Ling-Yi struggled to come to terms with the fact that she would never be able to have an everyday life, and Wei-Lin grappled with the guilt of knowing that her role as a carer meant she would outlive her friend.

Ling-Yi struggled with frustration and anger, questioning why she had been given a life with such limited possibilities. She longed for the freedom and autonomy most people took for granted and struggled to find meaning in her life as a donor. On the other hand, Wei-Lin struggled with feelings of guilt and responsibility, knowing that her role as a carer meant that she would have to watch her friends suffer and eventually say goodbye to them.
Despite their fears and uncertainties, Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi remained determined to make the most of the time they had left. They threw themselves into their passions and pursued their dreams with fierce determination, finding joy and fulfilment in life's simple pleasures. Ling-Yi continued to paint, filling her canvases with vibrant colours and expressive brushstrokes, using her art to cope with her emotions and connect with something larger than herself. Wei-Lin dedicated herself to her work, striving to provide the best care possible to the donors under her charge and to make a difference in their lives.
As the end drew near, Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi found the strength to say goodbye, as Ling-Yi made the ultimate sacrifice to save the life of another. In her final moments, Ling-Yi found peace and acceptance, knowing that her death would bring new life to someone in need. Wei-Lin was very sad after her friend passed away, but she was comforted by the fact that Ling-Yi had lived her life fully and impacted the world. Wei-Lin thought about all the special moments they shared and how much they loved each other, and she knew that Ling-Yi would always be with her.
After Ling-Yi's passing, Wei-Lin was left to carry on without her best friend. The loss was devastating, and Wei-Lin struggled to find meaning and purpose in her life. But as she reflected on the time she had spent with Ling-Yi and all they had learned from each other, Wei-Lin was inspired to continue fighting for a better world and never let go of hope.
She threw herself into her work with renewed purpose, determined to make a difference in the lives of the donors under her care. She knew that she could not change the circumstances that had brought her to this point, but she could do her best to impact the lives of those around her positively. Wei-Lin's dedication and compassion made her a source of hope and positivity for people facing death.
Through their friendship and shared struggles, Wei-Lin and Ling-Yi discovered the true meaning of love and the power of the human spirit to overcome even the most difficult circumstances. They learned to cherish every moment, to find joy and beauty in the simplest of things, and to never take life for granted. And as they navigated the complexities of life and death in a society where the value of an individual was determined by their ability to donate organs, they emerged more robust and more resilient, with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.
