I read a short story many years ago that I would like to find for my kids. Have googled like mad to no avail. Here is what I remember:

  • Set in a dystopian future,
  • A couple puts on some special skin suits so they can have relations.
    • Then they discuss their desire to adopt a child and how they found a broker who can help them.
  • You learn that what children there are are wild and live outside the city.
  • They drive out of the city into some ruined/abandoned area where the broker, an old man, is waiting at an old parking garage.
  • In the end, it is the wild kids who control the broker, not the other way around and they have used this ruse to lure the couple into their trap.
  • When was many years ago? And also, check out How to ask a good story-ID question? to see if it helps jog your memory. – Möoz Jan 28 '18 at 23:10

    What kind of "trap"? – Ash Jan 29 '18 at 12:28
  • Sometime between 1986 and 1991. To eat them? – Tami Jan 30 '18 at 21:59
