Stand Up and Escape
December 11 2014
I was at a dinner that someone in my family was hosting. It seemed like the opening of a new "big business" compartment craft/hardwood store. He was giving a toast. The table next to me was a family. It was a little Native American man (distinct) and his wife.
They looked poor with ratty clothes. The woman was wearing this burgundy drape.
Someone at another table yelled, "What would make your poor asses want to foster a child? You can't even take care of yourselves."
The man didn't change his expression, but the host got upset. He said, "this couple is more wealthy than you know. They are ministers and healers."
I said to my friend," We are going to hear about kindness in his Monday lecture, I guarantee it." Then she said, "Yup. Hey Keri, when we are set free to look at the items I want to show you my vacuum. It's weird. The sucction tubes "slinky" around the carpet without control. I'm afraid it's going to hurt my puppy."
So, we were let loose to explore the store. We came across a table with hair clips. I looked at this rainbow, sparkling, alloy butterfly clip. I said to my friend, "I could make earrings out of these."
Just then I heard a loud, "No, hide." I looked over to her and a gigantic arm grabbed her. I rolled under the table.
It was this huge, weightlift figured man. He had to be around 500-550, 6'11". His appearance was nice. In a tailored suit. He had two men with him. I remember they all were in suits.
He pushed one old lady out of his way, snapping her neck. He had my friend in one arm and was walking to this other guy in a suit. This guy looked freaked out.
"Where's my money? You gambled it and now I want it," He said slowly. His voice was so deep it rattled my heart in my chest.
"I don't have it," the man said. Before the other two men could grab him, he leaped over a rack that looked like a canyon and fled.
The large man turned around and said, "then you all shall pay."
He threw my friend on a lawn chair and picked up an older version of my other friend and set his minions free.
I was like, "F#ck!!!!" I tried to get closer. Someone grabbed my leg under the table and gave me a green, unlined posted note.
"What does this mean?"
The lady who grabbed me said, "The time he starts his torture."
I was looking around and alot of the department store workers looked unfazed. I saw one of my friend's husband with his earphones in stocking the shelves.
I said, "I need to help my friends. What can I do?"
The lady said, "He'll like you just go over slowly and flirt with him if you want to make an assessment."
So I did. He had both my friends pinned. He would shove his fingers down their throat just enough to gag them but not to kill them.
" He's going to do this for five hours," someone folding shirts said.
I looked at him like, "How do you know that?"
Then he spotted me and beckoned me to come over. I smile and said, "What's up? Looks like you need some water."
Just then a man took a heifty hammer and hit the large man in the head. He fell down. People were taking turns hitting him. He opened his eyes, shook himself off, roared, and literally transformed into the hulk (without the green skin).
He was now 8 feet tall. He grabbed the hammer and threw it in the air hitting someone. I looked down at Kate and Jessica, but they we lifeless.
The man saw my friend's husband listening to music and snapped him in half.
I was scrambling to find an exit. I found two girls running with me. We made it outside, but there was an electrical fence in the back. We jumped the part that was sinking and ran towards the highway for help.
I noticed that cars we turned out of their lane and large, half eaten fruit was on the ground; mostly oranges.
Then I felt the earth shake and a roar behind me. I looked around and there were these giants everywhere.
That's when I woke up.
