Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

I’m wandering around the zoo, returning bored looks from a buncha sleeping tigers and apes, watching kids pick their noses and scream like the ironically less-well-behaved counterparts of monkeys that they are.  Suddenly I pass by an adamantium cage with a row of women in chairs, sitting with their backs facing me.  I stop and look.  There’s something familiar about them, but what could it be…suddenly they all stand up in unison.  Creepy.  They slowly turn, revealing themselves to be…my EXES!  WTF!  I’m not gonna miss an opportunity to quote Admiral Ackbar—it’s a trap!!!  One of them reaches a hand forward at waist level and makes a squeezing motion.  My nuts erupt with pain.  Agony shoots through my lower belly just the same as if the Rock had drop-kicked me in the hairy necessaries.  Another twist of the hands, and the cage door telekinetically opens.  Out of sheer desperation, I open my eReader to Echo.  Magic flash.  As the Exes march toward me, grins sliced across their faces like sickly cuts made of gleaming teeth, lightning begins shooting down from above.  On the spot where it impacts the ground, the energy gathers and coalesces, and I see Jessica Rabbit begin to form—right knee to the ground, other knee up, left hand on the ground, right hand straight up—in a cool anime-style pose, like she was some kind of Dragonball Z character.  She sees me writhing on the ground, clutching my huevos.  Her eyes widen in horror, then narrow into angry slits.  “The Eighth Wonder must be protected,” she mutters.  She places herself between my groin and the advancing Exes like some kind of angelic bodyguard charged with guarding my junk, then begins shooting blasts of quantum radiance out from her eyes.  The Exes fly everywhere, tossed to and fro by a storm of explosive energy.  Jessica turns toward me, looks at my ballbag, and reiterates, “The Eighth Wonder must be protected.”  She slings me over her shoulder and carries me to safety as families gape in awe.  Eighth Wonder—I like that.  😉
