MEEP! MEEP! MEEP! MEEP!
Flumpty woke with a start, and mashed the snooze button on the annoying alarm clock. “Five more minutes…”
Thirty seconds later…
MEEP! MEEP! MEEP! MEEP!
Flumpty got up, grabbed the meeping alarm clock, and threw it out the window. There was the sound of a crash and a cat yowling. The clock landed in a pile of identical clocks, meaning this definitely wasn’t the first time this happened.
Flumpty got out of the bed, and made his way to the kitchen to make some breakfast. But when he got there, why, all of the food was gone! He could have sworn he had plenty of food before he left yesterday! The most likely cause was a burglary since that wasn’t uncommon in New Dork, but WHO would break into someone’s house and take nothing but all the food in there? He supposed he had no choice but to go down to the grocery store and get more food.
So he went to the store, got a basket, and started going through the aisles looking for anything that seemed good.
It all went fine until he saw somebody in the refrigerated foods section pull out a carton of eggs from a shelf.
Flumpty shoved his basket aside and stormed over to them, snatching the carton of eggs out of their hands. “What the- hey! What was that for?!”
“How… dare you!” Flumpty shouted. Nothing ticked him off more than somebody eating eggs, considering he was one.
Flumpty then went into this long emotional speech about the wrongness of eating eggs that went on for at least ten minutes. When he finished, the other said “Um okay. Now that that’s over, can I have my eggs back now?”
What?! He just heartfeltly told the guy about the evils of egg eating, and he STILL insisted on taking them?! That was it. He was mad now. Getting angry was extremely rare for Flumpty, which was probably a good thing. He grabbed the guy and flung him all the way across the store, the shelves being knocked over like dominoes. The guy landed hard on the tile floor, being knocked out in the process. Flumpty would have outright murdered them if they actually ate an egg, not just get ready to.
He took his shopping cart to the check-out area, but he then realized he had left his wallet at the apartment. No matter. He ran out of the store with the cart of groceries, the alarm in there going off. It wasn’t long before the store’s employees were chasing the shoplifting egg telling him to pay for those items.
He let them chase him for a bit while giggling, then teleported both himself and the food back to his home leaving his pursuers dumbfounded.
Well, that was fun. He put the food away, then decided to wander around town for a bit.
Flumpty is still wandering about the city.
Flumpty continues his aimless wandering.
So much later that the narrator got tired of waiting and a new one had to be hired…
Flumpty stops and sits down on a bench in the abandoned area of New Dork. This place had been devestated years ago by a tornado, and the area had been closed off to the public due to it being unsafe. There was at one point a construction project to try and fix it, but they gave up and left the place to rot since it was too badly busted up.
There were almost no buildings left standing, and the ones that were were crumbling away. That is- except for one that Flumpty had actually never noticed before. The reason why was because it was located at the edge of the area, shrouded in ivy and the rubble of other buildings making it hard to see. Curious, Flumpty approached the structure and examined it. It was purple in color with several broken and/or cracked windows. The blue door had a picture of a rainbow on it, and in faded yellow paint below it in large capital letters was “Ms. Leedie’s Preschool for Little Gifted Souls”. So it was a preschool. Or it used to be, anyway.
He peeked in through one of the windows. It looked pretty dark in there, but he clearly see that the floor of that room had dark carpet covering the floor, and that there were little kid drawings on the walls and a few toys scattered here and there.
Flumpty wanted to have a look inside. He grabbed the doorknob and turned it, and surprise! It was unlocked. He stepped inside and closed the door behind him.
He hadn’t been in there for five minutes, when a voice yelled out “INTRUDER!”
