Life in Order

The sound of metal rhythmically clanking in tempo woke Cal into darkness and a cold wind swept over his naked body. Waking him from what, he didn’t know. He could have sworn he was involved in something, but he was only at the edge of a memory and could not unlock anything in his mind.

He didn’t know if he was asleep or dead and now in the afterlife, or something else entirely. He could see nothing, but only hear the constant clanking of metal and whirring of the wind and the grain on the floor. He moaned as he twisted and pushed himself to stand feeling through the dark making sure not to find injury to compound his bewilderment.

Sliding his feet carefully across the floor and hands gingerly ensuring his path was clear. He could feel his body weak with lack of use, bend to the floor but he resisted. His head heavy with confusion and his heart full of fear he crumpled to the floor. Moaning in frustration and determination the stood himself back up.

He could hear a distinct clicking and shifting of metal in one direction clueing him in on that may be a way out whether a door or a tool. Shakily making his way through this personal abyss he found a wall. Palms flat he searched hastily for any object whether a switch, opening, anything to give him hope to rid this cold darkness.

There, the sound of the draft and the clanging of metal different that what was outside. A dip from the wall and then a large metal it was definitely a door. He pushed it downward, hearing the latch click he pushed then pulled it to the side sliding it across. A great light pouring in blinding him, arm raised and head down he stepped though. Hunched over he looked into they room he’d come from now that the light had broken it’s darkness.

On the other side of the room the opposing wall was a strange organic material vicious and bulbous. There was a large flesh like hole gyrating. Just as the horror struck him the room detached revealing a night sky and field dark green tall grass whirling past at a speeder greater than what he felt necessary. Tracks, the room was tracks. As if a great force hit it from the left then the right the room, or car, jarred violently upwards to the left then tore future up to the right before flipping endlessly backwards infinitely hurling into the night.

The image was abruptly interrupt and the door he came though slammed shut as if he were not meant to see it.

In this room he was in
