Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

WITHIN KENT WAYNE’S SHOWER:

“REMEMBER YESTERDAY!” I screech, holding the shampoo bottle to my lips like a hot mic.  “WALKING HAND IN HAND!  LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND; I RE-MEM-BER YOU!  THROUGH THE SLEEPLESS NIGHTSTHROUGH EVERY ENDLESS DAY!  I’D WANNA HEAR YOU SA-AY:  I RE-MEM-BER YOU!”

I pause for a second so I can furiously strum my air guitar, then screw my face up as I drum the fuck out of an invisible drumset.

 

TEN MINUTES LATER:

I finish drying off and walk back into the living room.  My phone is flashing with a shitload of alerts.  The screen fritzes, then begins blinking through newsfeeds.

“—bringer of the apocalypse—”

“—people dying left and right—”

“—is my last newscast.  I can feel my brain running out my ears—”

“YOU DID THIS, KENT WAYNE!  YOU AND YOUR UNGODLY SHOWER SINGING!”

My first instinct is to shrug.  A world without Grammar Nazis and emo-poets—how is that a bad thing?  But then my penis rears up and slaps me twice across the face.  It informs me through a series of burbles and grunts that I’ve lost my goddamn mind.

Because how the FUCK am I gonna survive in a world without SOCCER MOMS?

He’s right, damn it—he’s right.

So I open my eReader to Echo, activating its reality distortion powers.  Magic flash.

Time rewinds, to the instant before I was about to unleash my horrific rendition of Skid Row’s classic rock ballad.  I raise the shampoo bottle up to my mouth, about to cut loose, when Penis turns his glans up, looks me in the eye, and growls warningly.

Sigh.  He’s right.  No more shower karaoke.
