Tick Tock Tick Tock chimes the clock, that’s all I can hear in this dark room, only the dim light from my phone charger provides any sort of light in my bedroom.

I’m sweating, my heart is racing, “what is this” I murmured attempting to gain an answer which I knew would never come

TICK TOCK TICK TOCK, “that fucking clock” I uttered, getting increasingly annoyed I shifted to sit upright. TICK TOCK TICK TOCK…. the sound getting louder and louder, now matching the beat of my heart, TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK, faster and faster my heart keeping pace. Then I started to feel faint, my breathing became heavy the only sounds I could hear was the beating of my heart and that fucking clock.” I’m in trouble now” I thought, .and then it hit me

I don’t even have clock!

That realisation seemed to kick something into motion, my bed started shacking. The ceiling the floors bouncing as if they were water I began spinning faster and faster. TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK, louder and louder, faster and faster, I closed my eyes screamed as loud as I could, but no sound came out and then, just as fast at is had started. There was peace….


I opened my eyes…I was in shock, I was no longer in my bedroom


My surroundings were very much reminiscent of a normal office, a day to day building, drab grey coloured walls and cheap MDF furniture. I scanned the room and noticed a window…outside the window was a normal scene a car park, people walking and talking, seemingly relaxed and getting on with their day to day business. I felt annoyed at this, how can they be so normal, where the Fuck am I.


“good morning Gareth”

Startled I turned around an gasped and let out a scream…..before uttering “ who are you”……

I couldn’t believe my eyes,

“calm down Gareth, you are acting a fool, as usual”


I couldn’t quite believe what I was looking at, behind a desk was a man, well not a man, he was sitting like a man but had a cat face….including whiskers!! his accent was what I can only describe as a James bond type character…I couldn’t process it…I was confused, scared and angry.


“Gareth, please get up and take a seat”

 “why do you keep calling me Gareth that’s not my name” I replied sternly.

“of course, it is you silly old bean here look”

The cat man pulled out a photo and handed it to me.

I clasped the photo with shaky hands and took the phot form his paws. I studied the photo and became even more confused.

The photo was of Tom Cruise in a poster of Mission impossible 3, and underneath the photo crudely written Biro was the words “This is Gareth”


“this isn’t me this is tom cruise in mission impossible 3” my name is tom

“Nonsense” replied the Cat Man, we have been expecting you for many years Gareth” Come we have much to discuss.


“I’m not going anywhere until you explain to me what the hell is going” , I am not Gareth, THAT is Tom Cruise and this whole thing is fucking Weird”


“YOU WILL DO AS I SAY CREATURE” the Catman rose up, his whole body turned red and grew Wings that filled the room, everything went a dark red colour, the people talking outside now peering through the window with Dead eyes, staring at me, all with their mouths wide open.

Cat man Grabbed me, and effortlessly held me above his head and walked outside.

“Gareth Gareth Gareth Gareth” the people chanted.


He threw me to the floor and the people huddled over me, chanting louder and louder and louder until everything went dark and then silence…….
