The darkness


Cover by David Aragon

Year 2746 day 263

The world economy has crashed and there are only two classes of people, the super rich and powerful people in one end and the poor ad paid lowlife like Andy. Andy opened his eyes and quickly an ad started playing above his left air like any other day but today Andy was smiling to himself which had not happen often the 28 years of his ad paid lowlife. “Only 8 hours more of this madness” he thought to himself while an ad for painkiller played. “Today I am going to become free of the ads” he continued his thought while the ad tried to play something for him. He got dressed and eat some breakfast before heading for work so he could earn the last money for the laser job that would change his life. As he arrived to the subway station a few sexy girls stood next to him and even he tried his best not to watch them, ads for the breasts implants and sex toys started to cover his sight, making it almost impossible for him to see anything else. He managed to step on the train before it flew away but the girls was already laughing of him as they knew what had happen. He closed his eyes and the ads disappaired for a moment but even in the darkness, he were not alone. “Don’t do it” a red flaming text said and the text surprised him so much that he landed between the first girl big breasts. “Look what you are doing” she yelled loud and a police officer nearby started to walk against Andy. “Sorry” he manage to say before almost jumping off the train as he were at the office.

He walked inside the office and placed himself in front of his computer and started working while he tried figure out what ad would have such red text but just as he were working the best it suddenly happen again “Don’t do it” and this time his computer broke down. “Am I turning crazy?” he thought to himself and decide to leave the place before more events happening.

He walked around on the street before he suddenly got the idea of walking over to the laser job to get it done but the red text appeared again “Please don’t do it” and he fainted.

He opened his eyes and noticed that he were front of the laser place and decide to walk inside. A funny looking woman was greeting him and he smiled back. “I will be here, when you get out” she said, making him confused as there were still a few hours to his time for the laser job was there but a male in a white coat arrived before he could ask the woman any questions. “We have time for you now, Andy” and together, they walked inside the room with a big machine and bed. “Lay down on the bed with your head down and eyes closed. I will return when the job is done” the man said before leaving the room and Andy did as told.

He had not been laying for many seconds before he felt a warmth in his eyes. The warmth lasted a few seconds before disappearing just as quickly. “Open your eyes” the man said and Andy did as told and he started to look around but he all he could see were darkness. “Where? Where? Where?” he repeated and he felt the hands from the man on his shoulders. “did you really think that an ad paid lowlife like yourself would ever get the chance of being free?” the man said laughing and threw Andy to the ground. A woman voice appeared “You should have followed the text, now you can either roam the earth blind and die of hunger or kill yourself now” He felt an gun become placed in his hand and he could feel the hunger in his belly commanding him to do the only thing. He pointed the gun at his head and pulled the tricker.

Game Over!?
