Amos, the mad scientist, rubbed his hands as he viewed his newest creation.

A time traveling mirror-image version of himself stood before him blinking. He’d made a raw sculpture according to a vivid dream he’d had. It had been unforgettably vivid in its specific detail. Then he’d taken the mannequin-like “person” to the nearby castle and applied the electrodes and digital time piece as he’d felt overwhelmingly compelled to do.

Last night’s thunderstorm was the last prophecy that his dream had provided, and now, he stood before a masterpiece of extraordinary scientific significance. The rough prototype had miraculously taken on a perfect likeness to himself and was ALIVE!

“Where are you from?” Amos asked the being.

The faux Amos just starred deeply into his eyes and sighed.

Amos then shouted at the creature. “I command you to speak!”

The alien then smiled wickedly and swallowed Amos whole.
It licked its lips and staggered to an ancient, cracked wall mirror.

As the outer castle door closed, a dark figure stretched its arms in the early morning sunshine and started following the path toward town.
A farmer delivering milk from his wagon waved at it and called out a greeting.

“Good morning, Amos! How are ya today?”

After swallowing the farmer, Amos 2.0 finally found his voice.

“I’m just splendid and so were you.”


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.
