Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

Aaaahh….Winter break.  I’m safe from my professors…or AM I?  I wake up and stagger to the fridge in my Batman jammies.  I prep a bowl of cereal and pour milk over it, just like the ’80s commercials of old.  I’m about to eat my first spoonful, when I see a miniature head poke out from my cornflakes.  I instantly recognize the face of a bespectacled, know-it-all philosophy professor.  He turns toward me, bares miniature fangs, and hisses.  I let out a yelp and stumble backward over my chair.  My hand accidentally hits my bowl and sends cereal flying through the air.  Intermingled with the cornflakes, I see fat, hissing roaches, all adorned with the heads of my professors.  They’re running across the walls and floors, yelling out their inane lesson plans and powerpoint slides.  I’m scrambling back on my hands and knees, eyes wide.  They fix their malevolent gazes on me and fill the air with a series of harsh laughter that sounds like, “Yark yark yark!” and then rush me in an insectile skitter.  I open a cabinet, grab some Raid, and let ’em have it.  Horror upon horrors, they power right through the poisonous mist, laughing all the while.  In sheer desperation, I open my eReader to Echo.  Magic flash.  Chuck Norris appears in full cowboy regalia:  Ten-gallon Stetson hat, weathered duster coat, and—yea buddy!—two giant peace-maker revolvers slung low on the hips.  His limbs blur like Roland motha duckin Deschain’s as he slaps leather and fills his hands with roaring thunder.  The atonal beat of heavy gunfire sounds throughout my kitchen as he blasts these unholy roach-things into the depths of the Abyss.  After the last insect is nothing but a smoking stain, he lazily spins his revolvers and sits them firmly in their holsters.  He tips his hat at me, and before he walks out the door, says, “Raid ain’t gonna cut it.  Not with vermin that annoying.”
