The Story of Earnie:
Earnie was raised in an upper class home and after high school, reality took him by surprise. He attempted school with the aid of his parents. To his surprise, it taught him nothing meaningful.
While contemplating dropping out, a curly haired, short, young man came into peripheral with clear intentions of obtaining Earnie’s attention.
Excitedly, the guy whispered as he scanned the area around, “take the red pill.”
The man grinned genuinely exposing his assortment of missing teeth and inflamed gums. The pill centered in his palm, he inched towards Earnie.
Typically, Earnie would feel intimidated in a circumstance as this, yet his expression did not move. His thoughts raced as he contemplated trusting this strange man. Fear of death and deceit crossed his mind, but something about the stranger seemed trustworthy.
After a brief silence and a scan of the peripheral, Earnie reluctantly picked the pill from the man’s hand and swallowed it. The strange man gave a look of appreciation and thanked Earnie with a nodding gesture.
Soon, the world around Earnie faded into the sky and his own shadow became the only source of darkness. (More Coming Soon. Thanks for Tuning In!)
