Every time I walk by my boss’s office he’s studying the Necronomicon. Creepy. One day, I’m passing him in the hall when he thrusts his hand toward me, veins popping out on the starkly stretched skin of his fingers. Red lightning crackles from his flesh and I drop to my knees and feel him invading my mind. “You WILL climb the corporate ladder, Kent. You WILL suffer from premature male patterned baldness, lack of vitamin D, and erectile dysfunction.” I’m screaming like Dameron Poe getting Dark Side tortured by that bastard Kylo Ren (how the hell are you gonna stab Han Solo, motha ducka), when my eReader drops out of my pocket, open to Echo. Magic flash. Legolas swings by the window on a flying eagle and shoots me in the chest with an arrow. I see that the tip of it has a syringe that’s labeled “MANLY JEDI.” Suddenly my childhood dreams come true; I’m yoked with an eight pack, I’m wielding a green lightsaber, and I’m parrying my boss’s evil red lightning with it. He’s stumbling back and calling for his minions. I crash out the window in a Bruce Willis-worthy leap, slam down onto the back of a T-65 X-wing starfighter, and make my escape. The slipstream ruffles my hair and my lips peel back in a mile-wide grin.
