The King of Thrash Justin Poole

I am the King of Thrash, Justin Poole. I write tales of love, life, lust and the occasional gunfight.
I am an explorer in a time with no frontiers

October First

Its nearly midnight.  We’ve been back from the hockey game for an hour or two now drinking and hanging out.  Kenny informs us hes headed to hardees and disappears out the door.  We yell after him to bring back fries and go back to shouting over bouncing souls music videos on the surround sound.  

Come one am we’re noticing its been a bit too long for Kenny to be gone considering the hardees is ten mins down the street.  After a few more beers John decides to head out and I kick back on the couch and nod off.

At 3:15 I wake.  Check the street out front.  Still no car.  I pick up my phone and dial but it only rings once.  I send a text “Hey yo, you alive”

I remember Kenny had been hooking up with Johns sister so he’d probably just used hardees as an excuse to sneak out and get some late night action.

A few mins later I get the reply “Im good”

The slight discomfort in my stomach subsides and I fall back to sleep.

Six am and I’m forced from sleep by an incessant pounding on the front door.  Head splitting and eyes squinting I open the door only to be greeted by the somber faces of two police officers.  They introduce themselves and ask to come in.

The rest of the day and most of the next are a swamp like haze of terrifying truths and ghoulish dreams of which is which I can no longer be sure.

The detail that sticks out like a lighthouse beaming a ship to shore is the time stamp on the security video where they believe the man entered his vehicle and began the abduction.

3:00 am.

In the year 3000

Though our universe is mostly under the control of the United Galactic Federation, there are still several small holdouts, including one particularly bothersome alliance known simply as The Brotherhood.  Under the guise of so called justice and liberty, the terrorists have been assaulting Federation citizens and officials throughout the solar system since the early days of UGF’s first successful freedom campaign.  

Despite their repeated attempts to draw the UGF into battle, we have remained tolerant and generous.  We see these misguided and troubled souls and we ache for them.  We ache for their suffering.  We wish for nothing more than equality for all. We will not go to war.  We will not bring harm to our fellow citizens. We are one universe.  We are united.

Let us stand as one entity and celebrate as prosperity is spread to each and every last corner of this great galaxy.  If you are in doubt you need only look inside yourself.  There you will find us.  There you will find peace.

Eyes everywhere.  Hood up, head down, move swiftly but not too quickly through the crowd at the station.  The train is an hour late and the crowd is growing restless.  The longer we stay exposed the more likely we are to be spotted and we can not afford to be spotted.  Not ever, but especially not now.  We need to be ready to roll as soon as that train pulls in.  There is a special package on board and once its safe and sound its back to the hills.  Back to the woods far away from civilization so we can regain some civility far from electronic eyes and ears.

God I hope this train gets here soon.

Its almost October.
