Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

“C’MERE KENT!”  I’m zipping my fly, finishing with the urinal when my boss and a gang of his stooges grabs me the back of my head and my shoulders and slams me roughly against the tiled wall.  He holds me in place and sneers, “You think it’s funny, huh?  You think our comfy, yuppified lives with our tennis trainer-banged wives and booger-eating brats is FUNNY?”  A sharp gesture of his chin toward a toilet stall.  “Our resident spicy burrito connossieur Fecor is right there dropping a dook.  When he’s done, your face is going in there next!”  Boss leans close.  Whispers evilly, “And he’s not gonna flush.”  As if on cue, Fecor lets one rip, along with a giant, breathy sigh.  A split-second later he walks out, and my attackers slap on respirators and force me in to the stall.  Oh god…the toilet’s filled to the brim.  I’m about to start screaming my ass off when my eReader falls out of my pocket, open to Echo.  Magic flash.  Jack Bauer busts in and takes care of these fools with his super secret ninja skills.  After he’s done, I ask him, “Why are YOU here?  Shouldn’t you be disarming a nuke or something?”  He gives me a level stare and says, “Fecor’s dooks are a matter of national security.”  He waves a hand in front of his nose, wrinkling his watering eyes.  “But tell you the truth, I’d rather be disarming nukes.”
