Citizen: A Matrix Story

I.

Bright blue sky.

Sun glaring through perfectly formed clouds of pure fluff.

He looks down at the busy street below – people and cars looking like scampering ants.

He looks up and sees a building across him and sees someone standing on the rooftop: A hazy figure of what seems to be a tall, dark man.

He feels the wind rapidly blowing at his face and through his fingertips.

Everything is a clear yet, a blur.

He is unsure if he is falling or flying.

He then hears a deep voice say, “Believe.”

He wakes up in a cold sweat.

My Top 5 Twilight Zone Episodes

I love The Twilight Zone (1959-64). It’s personally the greatest television series of all time. Rod Serling is a brilliant storyteller, and his sharp narration only makes the show even more hypnotic – “A dimension as timeless as infinity… the middle ground between light and shadow.” If you watch this series long enough, you’ll realize the influence it’s had on today’s movies and T.V. shows.

With 156 episodes, it’s a challenge to point out the best ones. But since it ran for 5 seasons, I’ll share 5 of my personal favorites. I won’t talk about them too much as I took the liberty of attaching each [30 minute] episode for your viewing pleasure – in case you’ve never seen them before.

So read on, press play and unlock this door with the key of imagination.

The Good Friend (A Wattpad Story)

In early 2008, I wrote a story. It took me 2 weeks to finish it. When I was done, I kept it stored in a computer folder without letting anybody read it.

As mentioned in my last post, I recently discovered a writing community website called Wattpad. After sharing a couple of short stories there, I decided this was the perfect place to get this story out. So after a few edits on the narrative (the original version had too much irrelevant content), I bring you: The Good Friend.

Just click on the image to view the story. It’s 19 wordy chapters but it all makes sense in the end. Hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
