    Butterflies & Hurricanes

    Post  Injektilo on Wed Jul 21, 2010 7:41 pm

    The computer screen reflected off her glossy eyes as she stared motionless at the trembling monitor. The drudgery of her job becoming too intolerable. Day in and day out, she was faced with the same redundant tasks, the same expressionless faces weaving between cubicles. A mundane existance is all she ever had. There had to be an alternative...she needed to escape.

    ...The commotion in the background brought her wandering mind back to reality. Another explosion rocked the outside of the building. It was time. She got up from her chair and looked around. There was a dense, chaulky cloud of smoke filling the room. She walked calmly away from her desk and into the hysteria of the room. There was an instant surge of people, forcing their way through a small opening at the other end of the room. Her heart raced, not in fear but in joy at the sight of the panic and chaos. A faint smile stretched sublty across her face.

    She finally managed to untangle herself from the crowd and make her way towards the exit. The double doors burst open and the bright light from outside flooded the corridor. She slowly made her way outside. In the distance, the sounds of gun fire and frantic yelling fueled her curiosity. She didn't know what to expect or what to do once she stepped outside. The only certainty she had was that this would be an opportunity that would never present itself again. It was time to leave everything behind.

    A blaze of fire erupted near her, forcing her to the ground. A car had slammed into the side of the building a few feet from her. She could smell fumes seeping out from the car. She stumbled to get back on her feet. At the same time, a shadowy figure emerge from the smoke. Within seconds, she was lifted and dragged away from the wreckage. The car exploded just behind them. The tall, unkempt man helped her up. With a smirk on his face, he reached for his back pocket. She was now staring down a shiny barrel. He paused for a minute, then flipped it around and gestured her to take it. He leaned forward....

    "Change everything you are...Use this chance to be heard. Your time is now."

    (An almost unsettling introductory piece in its portrayal of chaos and disorder, even if harmful to others as the only method of escape from an already woven and pre-packaged fate from those who may have done so before, yet reassuringly calming in its obtaining.

    Looking forward to seeing and hearing of where this chance to create ones own tapestry of biography may lead).
