I was with george in a small town that afternoon. We were playing
horseshoes and we were betting on them horseshoes. As George leaned over
the bench shot a glanceat me and said "Watch 'ya plannin' on doin'
afterwards..." i told him i was going to hike over to the bunk house and
have a short nap. I looked back at the playing area. I slammed down 5 bucks
on the wooden betting table over player 1. I heard George yell and scream.
2 seconds later the player i bet on won and i won double. Content with my
winnings i screamed over to George to tell him i was going back to the bunk
house. George told me to wait up. We left the barn and ran over to see
where lennie was. We both stopped straight in our tracks we saw something
that almost made us faint.
In front of us stood lennie, he was standing over the slouched curley's
wife and was mumbling "I've done another bad thing..." We asked lennie what
the heck he did. He just stood there looking at us like we were some alien
from a diffrent planet. He just started screaming and ran off in the
distance. I told george we had better tell the gang this. We gonna get our
hides whipped when curley finds out about this. A few minutes later when
curley and the gang came over and saw this he said to george "You fat Son-
of-a-*****" you killed my wife. I'm going to beat the living daylights
outta you. George sensing curley's fustration moved back a few feet. George
stammered " I didn't kill your wife it must've been lennie, The crazy idiot
must've did it. he ran off when we ran to him ", " i don't believe you, you
lying scoundrel's ll' pay for this'". I shook my hand at George to tell him
to run. We suddenly dashed off into the distance. I heard curley yelling at
us but we couldn't hear him in out fear of getting killed.
When we thought we lost curley a few shotgun blast hit the side of a
tree as we dashed past it. We were both frightened as hell, but we kept on
running for our lives. Another 2 shots rang out. As we were running we
spotted a cave on the left hand side of the country road and dove in it.
Inside the cave was a thin piece of some type of glass. It was glowing
a deep red and looked like it was hollow. i put my hand in and it looked
like it just dissapeared in the glass. I withdrew my hand in fright. I
asked george what it was, he replied with a shrug of his shoulders. We then
heard shotgun blasts again from the outside but this time it was much
closer than the other blast. George said " We better dive in that whatever
it is or we'll get ourselves shot ". With that he dived in the blank void.
I jumped in after him. I saw a huge amount of swirling colours around me
and then it disappeared. I looked at my surroundings. I saw huge metal
boxes in the distance and desert sand all around me. the sun was in the
early east which meant it must be sometime in the morning. I felt a tap on
my shoulder. I whirled around and put my hand around the person's neck. "
Ack. It's me man. George i not no alien." I released my hold. He went on "
Whatever in that place may be ". I started to talk when George interuppted
me. " Let's go and check them place out ". He started to walk, i followed
along. A few hours laters. The metal boxes we had seen earlier were not as
small as before they had rised way over our heads and were huge. We saw
people like ourselves all around the streets walking. Funny thing though
they were wearing funny clothing that seemed to stick to their skins. We
also saw sliding pieces of glasses in the openings of the boxes. We
approached a man standing on the street block carry a funny round object.
We approached him. I asked him " Were's here? ". He replied in a strange
language whichwe couldn't understand. He took out a small black box and
pressed a few buttons. he spoke "Je parle fran...", He looked a bit
agitated and pressed another button "Cing mun nay may..", Clickhe pressed
another button. Finally he spoke again "Yes, Sorry about that it's was my
voice modulation device, what did you want". I said " Where are we,No
actually what time is it ". He replied " Your are in VarysBrook, the time
is 4:30eta, 3046 ", "What is 3046? ", " The year 3046, hey what's with the
funky cowboy clothing ". Confused with the previous reply we went on. Not
too soon, two guards came up to us and said " You are not citizens of
VarysBrook, or of this time period please come with us ". Thinking finally
there was some people who could help us was wrong. They locked us in the
back of a small wagon-like moving object, And suddenly the two people gave
us needle shots. I conked out right after.
I woke up in the middle of a cell room. Probably not bigger than crooks
room back at the ranch. Another one of those people came by and hit a few
buttons and the the bars that confined me dissapeared. He lead me out of
the cage and the bars reappeared. I asked him how did he do that. He threw
a grunt at me. I remained silent for the rest of the walk. We approached
another place with a sliding piece of metal on the wall. It opened when he
approached it. He dragged me in. He told me to sit down. I did just that.
There was a big table with a rotating chair with it's back facing me. I
asked who sits in that seat. The seat rotated and faced me and the person i
saw sitting in it frightened me.
The man who was sitting in the seat was lennie. I couldn't reckognize
him at first but after i saw his scar on his right arm and then i
reckognized immediatly. He started to talk, " Ah.. I knew you'd come. You
must be wondering how you got here.. Or maybe how i got here, I can tell
you this much. 1 minute back at the ranch during your period means 1 year
over here. I've been here for 7 years believe or not. I'm no longer the
crazy idiot who keeps on petting rabbits all day long.... That dosen't
matter now. You must work for me now. You will be one of my many servants
that will serve me. Hhahaha. ". Seizing the opportunity i pulled the good-
luck rock i've been keeping for over 2 years straight at lennies head. I
hit right between his eyes and it dazed him. Just enough for me to jump at
the man behind me and tackle him down. I grabbed his strange looking
machine that he had dropped and ran out of the room. I was searching high
and low for George's cage until i heard a slight buzzing noise behind me. A
thin shaft of blue light hit my left leg and i screamed out loud. i dropped
to the floor and another shot hit my left arm and another hit my left eye,
All went blank.
I woke up in a small room totally unlike the other rooms i were in
before i was hit by thoe shots. As i opened my left eye, i saw something
that frightened me. My left eye had a red cross hair on it and indicators
on both sides of my eye. By thinking of commands i could manipulate my eye
to do close up and xray functions. A man came up to me. You were very lucky.
George got you here in time or you would've died. I must tell you a few
things. We barely managed to revive your eye. and your left arm and leg. We
have implanted robotic parts in you left arm and leg and implemented a new
FastBrain computer chip controller in the left and right hemispheres of
your brain. Your movement ability is 1005Ls and power is increased to 150
tons. I've already programmed all the needed knowledge available today.". I
felt funny though it was like i new every single word on the planet and
every single language. George came by and said "You were bleeding like hell,
so man.. i rushed you over to some huge metal building and this man said
this was a hospital so feeling relieved i said make him better quick looks
like he dying." The man goes i need 5 million dollars for the operation, I
said i had no money and they said well we won't heal him. I thought quickly
and said he'll die. The doctor said many people get killed every day or
sent to his death by lennie. I was going to ask who was lennie. But he left.
Luckily though this doctor that saved you said he designed a new type of
Umm... " Robotic Equipment " said the doctor filling in for George. "Yah..
That it's, well anyways he said it in some type of beta testing and he
needed a tester. He said it'll be free. At that in such a panic i would've
said yes to anything. " George continued " I forgot to tell you how i got
out, well you see when that man took me along this hallway, so i got pissed
off and strangled him to death i ran along the hallway trying to find an
exit when i see you slumped on the ground bleeding like anything, so i
picked you up and brought you here.". I got up and went up to a mirror to
look at myself. The Doctor commented " You won't see any metal parts in
your body it's all concealed. The Metal is a new organic mixed alloy so
it'll grow with you. Suddenly two men crashed through the door and started
to shoot at us.
I dove to the ground and pulled George along. The doctor was not so
fortunate, he was shot in the head and died right there. I yelled . I
jumped at the man standing closest to the door and punched him with my left
hand, he went flying through the door. I picked up his gun from the floor
and slid under a couch. Using the mirror on the far wall i aimed my gun
towards it's. My computer-aided reflexing caused me to shoot a perfect shot
which rebounded off the mirror and hit the man. I yelled to George " Let's
get out of here! ". He got up and started to run i followed him out the
door. We ran out of the hospital and ran to a nearby bar ...
It was a Monday morning when three friends met up at each other lockers like they always do. The three friend's names were Arielle, Jessica, and Raven. Raven started the conversation. "Hey guys how's it going? What did u all do over the weekend?" Then Arielle explained what she did on the weekend, "I went to the mall she replied exciteding...
Ring! Ring! Ring!' My alarm clock rang. I opened my heavy eyelids and suddenly remembered that that day, Monday, was the day of the class excursion to Palau Ubin with Miss Lee, our science teacher. I sprang out of bed and began to brush my teeth. After that, I changed into my school uniform and had a quick breakfast of ham and bacon. Then, I began...
My science class and I went to Miller Springs to learn about sediments and nature a few days ago. The good and bad sides of the trip I will explain below. The first good side of the trip was that we got out of school and were able to be outside. The second good side was that fun to learn about different things about what happened when Belton Lake o...
It was 1929. I lived in a large apartment in Munich, so big to fit me, my mama, papa, sister, and six brothers. We had a close relationship with the Catholic family who lived in the only other apartment on our floor. The M?llers were a nice couple who did not care that we were Jews. We had dinners together, went to the park, and shared hot cocoa on...
Amazing! This one hit me like the prickling buzz of a mid summer high tide line's "stanklucht"!! Tell me, do you know morphogenics? How close the gist of this gem parallels the parable of the Hunkering Seagull Karkass as the mud drawings of my forefathers have retold it throughout generations. Are you sure you have never heard the story? Maybe in...
