If I were able to move, I would have jumped from the bang that rebounded off the walls of my shelf. All of the sudden, I was ripped from my shelf, my drawer sped off the shelf and stopped jarringly, leaving me to uncomfortably bask in the sudden burst of florescence.

The barrel of a gun was pointed in my face.

I’ve seen one of those before.|.erofeb esoht fo eno nees ev’I

“Your mind has been altered too much. You are a danger to the world.” Dr. Wilhow said quietly.

I heard the gun cock.

“No!” I said.

All of the sudden, the straps that were restraining me snapped apart.

“No!” I repeated.

I rose into the air unsuspended.

“You mind has been altered to a dangerous point. You are putting us all in danger!”

“No!!” I yelled.

I felt an upsurge of power, and an explosion, from me.

Everything was white, now. I was standing now, and a black ball was heading towards me.

“No! | !oN” I cried.

I felt a wave of cold as it passed through me.

I wasn’t going to live.

    Interesting place to take this, into the realm of…well, reality, on could say. I also liked how you blended in the experience from one test with what’s actually happening…unless, of course, he’s not even in reality still…do DOO dooo….

    *one. Couldn’t leave it alone.

    haha, stovo. I think we could end it now, but you could just consider that last line of the story athought, and keep going ,whatever you want. you got free roam too, THX ! :]

  • from THX 0477:

    Neat continuation, a reasonable point to take or perhaps just Dr. Wilhow himself becoming a bit unhinged. You got me with the ending. With the straps coming off, I thought he was going to get out of, but nope, bang, shot down.

  • from THX 0477:

    Just to avoid anyone missing that it’s there, sequel done! Something about the way you wrote it all seemed to suggest a different possibility to me.

    “You mind has been altered to a dangerous point.”
    Yeah, I wonder whose fault that is.
    Brilliant, but I’m not getting all the mirror-age… did I miss something important with that?
