Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! 

Welcome to the second-last installment of the second chapter of my still-short-but-growing-longer story about Daniel.

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.

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.

The next five minutes continued with, what Daniel could only assume was, bureaucratically inspired fine print. Had he been to Betelgeuse; had he ever been exposed to dragon pox; were his parents ever involved in Pangaen politics; did he have a galactic criminal record?

Daniel had, he decided, an infinitely boring life, as he answered ‘no’ to the onslaught of questions, some of which didn’t even sound physically possible.

“Right, sign here” at a handwritten ‘X’, “here, and here.”

  1. I get the impression some things wouldn’t have made sense to him even if he’d read the whole contract, so I think he’s at the mercy of these people. I feel bad for him!

    Could I make a suggestion? To me, that first sentence reads choppy because of the commas. Those may not be necessary to get your meaning across and it might help with the flow if they were deleted.

    This is kind of a subtle cliffhanger ending, and I’m anxious to find out where he goes from here!

  2. I feel a sense of dread. Once he signs, he’d bounded by a contract, and that could be scary. So intriguing! Curious to read more. 🙂
