I’m shocked into stillness as I see Richard Gere falling from the sky, screaming and flailing. As soon as he hits the ground he explodes, and entire oceans of killer gerbils flood outward from his butt. Tiny black, soulless eyes flash with malice as the horde sprints toward me. I turn and run, somersaulting over trashcans and dumpsters (Parkour!). My lungs begin wheezing, and in desperation, I shimmy up a tree. Bad move. I see an army of living buttplugs coming for me, hissing in rage. I open my eReader to Echo. Magic flash. Brilliant lines of radiance etch through the air a foot away from me, forming into a glowing, crackling Chuck Norris. My mouth drops open in wonder. He turns to me and says, “It’s a blaze avatar. I got the idea from reading your draft of Echo 3.” He extends his fists downward and rockets into the gerbils. BOOM! Crispy-fried rodents are sent flying in every direction. The smell of singed fur and poop wafts through the air. Gross!
