-Come on , just get up already ! –the goblin had a menacing look in his eyes , our
hero's life was at a stake . The counter blinked, and said :3 , 2 , 1 GAME OVER with
bright red flashing words.
-Shit- said our hero , whose name was Matthew – Never gonna make it through this
fucking monsters .
-You're pretty dumb if you can't go farther the third level – said his well-built and
-Shit , it is just not my day , that's all –said Matthew to the macho.
I bet you are wondering what's happening , well….let's put it this way :
Matthew , 21 years old , clumsy , skinny , thin ,good-for-nothing who's studying
applied math's at the Seattle's university , and , who has failed for the second time
the second course (quite ironical) . With blonde hair and 1.80 of height , he was
considered a big child , rather than an adult. All because of his character : cold ,
sarcastic , irresponsible , immature …. and the list went on. Never understood anyone ,
and always hoped never to find anyone who understands him . Only friend with that
macho idiot who left studies to help his family; was good-looking , kind ,
compassionate and everything that women just love. Life's unfair .
Leaving the arcade , both of them were going down the street , talking about anything in
particular and staring at all those couples that were passing by kissing themselves until
they were breathless.
-Are you going to do the second course again ?
-Guess so .
-It's a matter of honor. I started it , and I'll finish it.
-Well , if you are sure….. the restaurant I work for is always happy to receive new
If glances could kill ……..well…….you know how it ends.
-Sorry , it was just a proposal , you can't live from your parent's money all your life ,
you know that .
-Listen , I'm going to finish this fucking courses , once for all. Next year will be better.
Since professor Talcott left , I have been left with jerks instead of professors.
-Dear me ….. –said the macho ( I don't mention him because his name isn't important).
Why did she leave ?- followed the macho.
-Rumors fly , something about dark holes and so on. Poppycock , the most reasonable
explanation is that she ran away with that Greek boy , well , hope they will be just fine.
I don't care much about their sake , anyways.
-You should try to understand others , you know . Maybe if you weren't that childish ,
you shall find a girl that will care for you.
-I'm not cut for love , and I wouldn't make the cut at any rate- said Matthew laughing at
his bad pun (I'd rather say horrible).
Their chit-chat was abruptly cut off because of the usual motorbike sound of the new
and ,possibly the worst gang that roamed the streets those days around Seattle .
Carrying a bat and kicking some butt , the so called gang was baptized by the name of
"badders" (mainly because of their "bad" grammar). They went around town causing
trouble. Just the early 50's style , excluding the black leather jacket and the famous
"heyyya". No , this goons just loved causing trouble .
Life was getting really unbearable , first the so-called badders , and then , the
(in)famous girl-rapper was still to be caught .The world was getting crazy.
-Shit!-said the macho . Let's split , were in gang's territory now .
-Ok , see you tomorrow then.-gave Matthew as a response and started running , he was
indeed skilful . Pass undetected ; pick locks and throw objects from a distance was
something to be born with . And Matthew surely has been born with those abilities.
He ran , ran and ran . He didn't care where he was running. He felt useless , he felt bad .
He had failed again , he didn't have a life ; nothing to tell when he would become an
adult. He hadn't seen them for four years . Rain started pouring . Matthew looked up to
the evening sky . Black .
The street light had just turned on. Matthew's tears were dissimulated by the rain .He
wanted to break free. He didn't understand math's , he would never have a girlfriend ,
he would never see his true family. He wanted to get away ; to live something . His own
adventure , his own quest for glory. He was at a dead end .
The motorbikes were approaching , the rain was pouring down his face , down his
fingers , deep into his heart.
-I want to get out –said in a tinny-like voice.
Soon , all the street lights shut down .The wind stopped blowing , even the rain
stopped. All during the same second . A big flash of light stood in front of Matthew ,
menacing. And , all of a sudden , he vanished. Disappeared , got away , all of the
Maybe , Jill Talcott's disappearance was not entirely because of a Greek boy , maybe
there were really mini dark holes in our world . At any rate , the truth was out there ,
only to be discovered by our soon-to-be-hero.
