Must use the song "The House Rules" by Christian Kane
After submitting the stories, six contestants dropped out, so no eliminations this round.
Mom's dead and dad's in jail. Sixteen year old, Palmer Mangrum has been shipped as an indentured servant to the backwater planet, Nero. On this gel-like water planet, they farm a type of squid for it's unique minerals.
He made a friend on the trip from Earth, Brandt, ex-military cadet. Now, he is also an indentured servant with shuttle flying experience. They gravitated to the oxygen bar, A Little Soul. It reminded Palmer of home.
Hometown bar rivalry explodes. The planet catches fire. What will happen to them? To his siblings, Kenley and Denae?

Hope you enjoy!
PS- Be careful reading the other stories in this round. Most were created for an "adult" audience and I do not know if they were label as such.
