The Call

Chapter One
Written by Jacob Ibrag

Every morning was a delight, and today wasn’t any different.
Waking up to the sun’s warm hugs on my body was a sign for good things to come.
Have you ever had a moment where you knew something special was going to happen?
You couldn’t put your finger on it, but you knew the big guy upstairs was brewing up something.
After staying in my bed longer than usual, Lily ran up the stairs and proceeded to wash my face with her long wet tongue.

“Easy there girl, I’m up, I’m up.”

I was definitely awake now and ready to experience what ever came my way.

“Bring it on big guy.”

*Cellphone Rings*
“Voice: You have sixty seconds to get out of the apartment. Good luck. Strive.”

I check my watch, clearly this is a bullshit prank call.
How mental do you have to be to make a call like that at seven in the morning.
Unless it wasn’t a prank, unless they were trying to save my life from the clasp of my serta bed.
Now, I’m just letting this get to my head as I continue to stare at my watch, with my bloodshot glare.
Twenty-five seconds remain.
Lily is now barking and scratching my leg with intent to inflict pain.

“What is it girl?”

Even if this is all just a prank, I might as well just go outside with her.
She probably needs to pee or walk a little.
So I calmly race outside in my red pj’s with Lily while staring at my watch.

“Five, four, three, two, and one.”

*Cellphone Rings*
“Voice: Ashes to ashes, it all falls down.”
