The wind. It was driving me crazy. I couldn’t take it anymore. Me, living on the streets of Texas with no shelter. No food. No nothing, nothing but my tandem bike. I was hungry, it had been weeks since I found any good scraps to eat, in result I was leaning towards cannibalism. Some people call me crazy, but I get to differ. I’d like to see them go that long without food. I had about had it with this town. Maybe if I took ride away from Kerrville on my tandem I would find a peaceful place out of the wind.

That moment I hopped on my bike and rode. I peddled and peddled until I came across an odd man walking along the road. I stopped to ask him where he was headed. Lucky for him we were headed the same way and my bike was a two seater. After hours of peddling we arrived in a town called Austin. Austin Texas. Even though the wind just about blew us over multiple times we made it there safely. On the many hour ride I did get pretty hungry and thought up a genius plan. For my plan to work out I was going to have to act real nice to my little… friend.

Step one of my plan. Take him out for lemonade. This went over quite well. I bought it without a few coins I had found lying on the street and we drank our juice out of the wind and proceeded. The hiker just needed across Austin so I told him I could take him.

Before we got to his destination we made what he thought was a quick stop at an old shack to get out of the wind. But really, this is the place I was going to eat him for lunch. As the wind whistled through the cracks on the shack, I walked out from the back with a chain saw I had found. The man screamed and made a run for it. He tripped on a hay stack and fell face first. I felt guilty and had second thoughts about killing the man. But everyone thought I was crazy. Why not give them a reason to think so. I paused for only a matter of 5 seconds, but in that time he had managed to get out the door. I quickly ran after him and managed to grab his foot. Once I had him down I decided I better make it a less painful death so I killed him with the chain saw and then ate him whole. The satisfaction of my hunger being gone was great. I hopped on my tandem and peddled. My next destination, the sun
