ENTRY ___163



I don't...

I can't remember what happened.
There must be something wrong with me.
I cannot recall how I got through the fire.
How did I get away?
I am drawing a blank, a blank in my mind.
I was frozen in horror, petrified against the wall of fire and water...
I closed my eyes, expecting the end.
and then?
Nothing.

I am running. Why am I running? A wall of water is chasing me, rumbling right behind.
My breath ends, I stutter, I slow down my pace.
This can't be real, I tell myself. I must be dreaming.

No.
The Neural Broadcast must be messing with my head, clipping, chipping away my memories.
The Neural G-Goggles are clearly malfunctioning as well.
My vision is getting fuzzy, pixelated, low res.
The rendering distance of the view through the nano-crystals embedded in my goggles is giving me problems, switching between gritty realism and cartoony filters as if it's trying to mess with me on purpose.
G-Damn it.
I'd tear them off if I wasn't so deathly afraid that my eyes will melt out of my skull the instant I do so. Last time I tried to take off the G-Goggles my eyes begun to itch and burn. Blasted poisoned air.

The water smashed into me.

I am grabbing for anything to hold onto. Anything at all.
Water is flooding my mask, seeping in between the seams, rushing down my throat. I helplessly flap my arms, my jacket getting wet and heavy, dragging me down under.
Surprisingly, I do not drown.
An old, hollow advert shaped like a pink doughnut covered in plastic sprinkles with the words "DONUTS AND MOAR" saves my life as my arms automatically wrap around it. It carries me to the surface, like a gigantic life-preserver.

As I am holding onto the plastic doughnut, floating nowhere in particular, amidst the ruins of a flooded city I wonder where Captain is right now.
Would Captain rather walk on water, swim through earth or simply sit on air to avoid such a nasty situation? Everything is possible when you are immune to the disease of bad luck. The doughnut creaks.
I dwell on how ridiculous/realistic it would be to harness Captain's blood into a vaccine to cure the world of the apocalypse. If only I had been fast enough. If only I knew the future. If only I could turn back time.

I find it hilarious that almost every time I read this one page, I get a Dunkin' Donuts ad on the sidebar.

"If only I could turn back time"
Do not wish for such things, Engie. It's time you accepted that one person can't save the world, and anyway tampering with the past is a big bad no-no.
