Inspired by a true event.
I did not know cats can have tonsillitis too! Weird! I had that once or twice during my childhood. My kitty Lory has been crying with a runny nose near the doorway for the last couple of days. We are residing in a giant space pod as the test subjects in a space colony parked on high earth orbit. Right now there are a lot of flat irregular shaped giant space pods surrounding the earth with many test subjects- humans, animals just like ours. They look like some gray space rock from afar. I signed up for this with my pet for some extra cash. I am broke after my graduation and did not land a job right away.
I called the hotline and found out there is no vet in our pod. The next day I was informed that we are staying in a sterilized organic oxygen-producing environment and we are being checked every day everywhere. So if the cat caught tonsillitis that means there are some unknown bacteria in the space pod. So a team is coming to take us back to earth for a few days while they take care of the cat and clean or check the whole space vehicle.
The next day a group of four people came; one lady and three gentlemen from the earth. We went back to earth and parked the vehicle on a beach during the day time. They said my cat is being taken care of and I must leave immediately, it will take only tonight to fix everything and tomorrow morning we can go back in mission.
I followed the lady and the guys’ team who brought us back. We had dinner together and we small talked a little bit. It became dark quickly. After a while, the lady said let’s go. I was following them but I told them that I need to go to the bathroom. After I came back I did not see them. I started panicking a little bit. I have dyslexia with direction sometimes. If I do not pay attention I cannot find ways back. I was still trying my best to follow a direction that I thought was correct. I was walking towards the wooden pier. At the end of the pier, there are these two stairs going down and I believe that I have to take the left one. As I was walking down, I heard some people coming towards my direction talking about a parked space pod and an escaped suspect! I asked them what they were talking about and they said, they heard some guy ran away from a hijacked space pod near the beach and pointed their fingers where I was heading. I thought this couldn’t be right. So I must go in the opposite direction; there must be more than one space pod parked and not just ours. Because I did not escape from our mission!
At this point I woke up from my dream. I slept really late last night, around 3 AM and now it’s almost 12pm. OMG! The dream was so vivid but obviously it was a dream that’s why a lot of things had missing pieces or did not make sense at all. But in the dream everything seemed logical. Also I noticed that I was a guy there even though I am a female. I don’t recall watching any Sci-Fi movies recently. Where did the plot come from in my head? I am sorry guys, if you somehow found this blog post bizarre.
