EPIPHANY– a SCI-FI story

My brother bought me a new mobile. I was so excited, I wanted to buy a sim and call my friends right away. You should know how it’s like to be the only person without mobile in a gang. So I took my bike and drove to the mobile accessory store. I drove so fast, feeling the rush of wind in my face. I’m crazy but not crazy enough to strike a titanic pose, like MEG RYAN did in City Of Angels. I had to make some rash turns, yet I kept my pace. There’s a straight road ahead, a good 100 meters long. No stop signs! No speed limits! Ain’t nothing gonna slow me down!

Suddenly I felt like I’m defying gravity. I looked down, the road wasn’t there. My bike was dragging me like it had a life of its own. Within seconds everything blacked out. BAAM!! There I was standing outside a store with a banner saying “WE GOT EVERYTHING YOU NEED.” What the hell just happened? I needed a sim so badly, I went in. There was an old man who greeted me, “What can I do for you sir?” Me, “I need a sim card.” Old man, “Sim card? This is a special store. So be careful what you buy”. He started tattling like those creepy movies. “I just need a sim card.” I bought the sim and stepped outside. I had the same feeling. Felt like I was caught in some sort of weird illusion. Everything blacked out again.

“Come on… Stop it... ”giggles. I opened my eyes, “what the!! Shoo go away!” There was this little pug licking my face. I was lying on the road with my bike few steps away and a crowd with curious looks surrounding me. I got up checked my pockets, I still had the sim. I picked up the bike and drove home. I threw myself on the bed, pulled over the sheets. I turned round and round to get into a comfy position, I felt there was something else in bed. Scared, I threw away the sheets. It was the same pug, looking at me and wagging what I suppose was his tail. I’m not dumb. I have figured it out just like you did.

I went to the bathroom, washed my face. I breathed in and out trying to relax. Then… I slapped myself hard and said, “I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT AXE DEO!!”
