Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! 

Welcome to another installment of ‘Falling into that New Career’.

Daniel is not your normal hero. In fact, very far from it. Inopportunely rescued from a suicide attempt (by a 2 second admin error), he is plunged into an alternate reality, where he is supposed to be an already deceased ‘specimen’. Fortunately the workers overseeing his ‘collection’ were less than eager to change his status to that required by their paperwork, and he finds himself ‘relocated’. The only problem is, the Multiverse is a pretty big place, and he did not get returned to Earth.

His story continues in this second chapter (Falling into that New Career)  of Lab Rat (this is the working title only) where he finds himself in the Alien Immigration Offices, having to complete ‘paperwork’ with his case worker Zith Grewnfarn.

“Well, isn’t that a pity. What do you remember, Daniel?” Zith’s voice was laden with patience and was starting to take on the tone of someone dealing with an obvious imbecile.

“Um,” buying time, he backtracked from being dumped in the ocean. Ok, so not the surreal specimen collection site… Not the aborted suicide off the water tower… Car trip…? Wait…

“Um, I was having a drink at the Septic Saucer.” He watched Zith pen in ‘drink’ and ‘Sceptic Saucer!’

  1. What an intriguing book. He doesn’t sound like the luckiest of guys, does he? A bit rough to be sent off somewhere else in the Multiverse because the officials couldn’t be bothered to alter the paperwork! Great snippet.

  2. Haha! I love that name too, the Septic Saucer. I think that might be excuse enough for anything that has happened to him–at least in the eyes of his caseworker. 🙂

    Please publish an anthology of your stories!
