Chapter 26: And then…


Morty saw a rat dart out from an alley into the sidewalk. It looked around quickly and ran in a zig-zag avoiding hydrants, trees and people. A few seconds later two more rats came running out, and looked around panicked, they headed passed Morty and off, away from the sunset. Two became five, and five became a trickle, the trickle became a flood, and soon there were hordes of rats spilling from the alleys, with the occasional weasel mixed in for good measure. They clogged the streets and traffic came to a standstill, the homeless had scattered, and Morty found himself standing alone on a sidewalk teeming with stotes and rodents.


He stood there paralyzed, he had so distanced himself from the world, and advertising that he had not had a traumatic episode in recent memory. He could not tell if what was happening was really there.


And then he felt a rumble across the soles of his shoes. It was hard to distinguish from the piles of rats running around his feet, but it grew stronger. His ankles shook, and then he felt his whole body shaking with the vibrations. He finally snapped back let his instinct take over, he ran off the sidewalk, away from the rats, away from the growing vibrations. He didnt look back until he was on the outskirts of the city.


The sun had set it and it was twilight, in the distance, he could see fires and a colossal hulking figure kicking at buildings. It was wearing some kind of colossal athletic uniform.


It was mega-Beckham.

  1. This is first time in my life when I don’t know what to say. After reading all comments I’m shocked. What has happened with our society, with our young generation? They are commenting terrible information, their lexis sounds terrible. Is that true, that only words they know is “cool”, “cute” and cussing words? What are they thinking of? It’s better not to think about it, it’s too sad
