Fang Talks

silent but deadly

As promised, here’s the second and final part to the short story I posted yesterday. Enjoy, and please tell me what you think!

With a loud crash and lots of noise, it crashed into the grocery story I intended entering. Debris hit me in the face, dust rose up, but I stood still and watched it happen.

It didn’t feel like it really happened, I didn’t feel sorry for the people who died or anything. Even though this was one of the first disasters I witnessed first-person –and by far the weirdest at that– it didn’t give me the feelings it would give anyone else.

I went home and directly into bed, not even feeling scared about the dreams I was going to have.

I woke up on the other side, the dream side. I opened my eyes, and saw planet earth in front of me. It seemed rather tiny from this distance.
Nothing happened for a while, so I looked around to see if there was anything else to see. Nope, just eternal nothing all the way around.

It took me a few seconds to realise, but I just turned my head, looked around, all by myself. Usually I would’ve automatically been flying round the world by now, watching disasters unfold. Instead, I was here, and I had a free will, I had intentions I could actually manifest.

Naturally, the earth attracted me –there wasn’t anything else to be attracted to anyway– so I flew in closer. The feeling of power over my body in this dream still felt weird, but it seemed like I was already getting used to it. The volcano that had erupted in Central Europe was there. Just as big as it was when I saw it previous night. I wondered if I could just sort of reach over and maybe…

…yes. Yes I could. I pointed at the lava, then pointed my finger elsewhere, and the lava went where I wanted it to go. Swoosh, up into space it goes! And back down now, real quick! Little bits of lava jumped out of the volcano and burned surrounding parts of land.

But shouldn’t I stop this? I’m putting people at danger, and now I have a chance of stopping it!
Nah, it’s no longer a vision. I’m no longer passive and this is just a regular “lucid dream” or what are they called. And even if this is what will happen, at least planet earth’s going down with a bang!

I looked up and noticed I could now see the sun. Thought it was cool to fling the moon into it, and so it did. The sun sort of exploded, and huge bits of flaming material were flung into space, or wherever I may have been. Big chunks of it hit the earth, too.
Burn baby burn!

I woke up with a jolt, and saw that my room was brightly lit even though I closed the curtains before I went to bed. I got up, saw the curtains were still closed. I opened them, and the brightest light I had ever seen burned into my eyes.
Blinded, I stumbled backwards, fell over, and decided to lay there for a while.

A small noise. It got louder. A bang, and then nothing. Just eternal nothing. A part of the sun had struck my house. I killed myself by accident.
At least the dreams have stopped now.

Opinions, thought, comments and critique are more than welcome!

    Someone needs to animate this. It would make a great short film or something.

      This probably is the best comment! I’d buy a ticket to see this short film!

    I think given the chance, I’d blow up the sun as well for kicks. I guess the only thing I would suggest is maybe add a bit more length. At first I thought he was going to have the chance to stop a disaster, but decide not to stop it, to let it happen as it should. Then move onto making his own disasters.
