Greetings, all! It’s time for Hump Day Hook! I’m continuing with Ark, so we can learn some more about Luk and his world:
Luk walked down the two levels to the Research Lab where he had his work assignment. Master Jon was called a botanist; he studied things called plants. Jon’s plants were green floppy things with hairy looking white bits that floated in trays of sticky liquid under blue lights. The lights made Luk’s skin glow oddly. According to the Tutor, Old Erth had once been covered with these plant-things, but they had been in the ground, not trays of biogel. Luk tried to imagine green things growing out of the floor. The thought made him queasy.
Thanks for reading! Be sure to check out more of the Hookers here.
‘Til next time!
This story is really intriguing. I am definately hooked with this one. Wonderful. ????
Interesting…Makes me wonder what Luk’s planet looks like.
Someone who doesn’t know about plants? I-i-interesting.
Great hook, well done!
Sounds like he lives in a very interesting world!
Heartbreaking and fascinating at the same time. Great hook!
What an interesting perspective! The thought of plants growing out of the floor making Luk queasy made me chuckle. I suppose that would be utterly unimaginable to him, as it seems he has spent his entire life on the Ark. Though it also makes me wonder what sorts of things people do on the Ark if plants and the scientists who study them are so foreign to Luk. Is botany some archaic practice that only Master Jon engages in? I hope you continue with excerpts from Ark…I want more. Thanks for sharing, C.C.!
Very intriguing and unique take on the future. I love that plants are a foreign concept and Luk’s reactions. Can’t wait to read more!
Great hook! I think I know but I wonder where the roses have gone and it’s a little sad.

LOL, love the idea of Luc’s panic at the thought of grass.
He sounds almost childlike in his curiousity and innocence. I’d love to read more of this story. Great hook!
