Alexander Albany was driving to work one clear, ordinary, beautiful morning, but for some reason he couldn't enjoy it. Maybe it was because he had woke up with a cramp, or that he was out of milk that morning. As he pulled up to the snow white building that he worked at he had a sense of dread knawing at his mind.
[[next]]He grunted as he shoved the heavy glass door open and punched in the code to the elevator and patiently waited as the doors rolled open. He stepped inside and pressed the FOUR button and waited until the ding sounded somewhere from above, and ambled inside the place where he spent half of his life. But something was wrong, there was no one anywhere to be seen.
[[He looks around for his co-workers]] or
[[He goes home and decides he gets the day off]]He starts walking around the office, past all the half-drinken coffee cups and empty desk. He was starting to think that maybe something had happened in the middle of when everyone was working. He walked over to a closet and pulled the doors open, two of his co-workers fell out, there were ants all over them and the ants seemed to be making tunnels un their flesh. He gaged and felt sick.
[[ next]]As he leaves the building and gets in his car, he thinks to himself that it's strange that no one gave him a call or told him that he got the day off. But he decided that if he doesn't have to sit at a desk all day then he won't. As he pulled up to his house overlooking the french alps and got out of his car he noticed that there were ants all over his front door. He heard a sickening creak as the door crashed down. Inside he saw an ant the size of him standing in the door way. Inside the ant´s mouth was his gardener! Alexander tried to run but the ant picked him up and threw him to the ground before he could do anything. Just as he thought he was dead a shovel appeared in the back of the ant´s throat. The mutant ant fell limp to the ground next to him. He got up and ran to his gardener's side, he was dead.
"No" Alexander whispered.
[[next ]]He slowly walked back to his car, got in, and started the engine. He drove out of his drive way and onto the side streets of his neighborhood, they were silent. Empty of the usual Once he got to the highway he sped up and started wondering what he was going to do, he saw another car crashed into the side of the road and felt lucky that that wasn't him. He saw an exit up ahead and wondered what he should do.
[[Stay on the highway]] or
[[take the exit]]He turned around to run but there was an ant the size of him in the way. The ant was drooling and looked like it was hungry. He grabbed a pair of scissors and threw them at the ant's eye. It stuck! The ant screeched and ran at him. He turned around and saw the fire exit at the back of back of the office, he dashed through it and ran down the four flights of stairs and sprinted around the side of the building.
[[ next ]]He decided to stay on the highway because its faster, right? His car only had a top speed of 120 MPH, which might sound super fast for a normal day but when the world was covered in ants and you don't know when an ant the size of you will pop out and chase you it feels like your getting nowhere. Up ahead he saw a giant pile-up of cars blocking the highway. When he got closer he saw a man that seemed to be alive.
[[ next]]He decided it was best to take the exit because it was getting late and he needed a place to spend the night. As he drove off the freeway, the moon was rising in the sky and the usual lights that flick on stayed off, the world seemed silent. He saw a motel a few hundred feet down the street. It´s painted an ugly blue color but looks decent. As he pulled into the parking lot, grabbes the bottle of raid he keeps in his trunk, and walked up to the nearest room, he slammed the bat into the door knob and the door slowly creaked open.
[[ Next ]]He saw his car, He ran to the door and swung it open. He hopped in and started it, the tires screeched as he pulled out of the parking lot. He drove past houses and more office buildings, all silent except for the crawling of ants.
[[next ]]The man was crawling on the ground and looked like he had seen better days, both his legs were twisted backwards and he guessed that they were broken. His face had scratches all over it and a nasty one on his leg. By the time Alexander got over there he still doesn't seem to notice him until alexander said,"are you okay?". He replied with,
"who are you?"
"I'm alexander, alexander albany, who are you?"
"I'm tom, and as you can see I need your help."
[[Help tom]] or
[[Ditch him]]Out of nowhere a giant ant bursted out of a roof. It had wings so he guessed it was a queen ant. He swung the car around and hit the gas but he didn't get very far before the queen lifted him off the ground and before he knew it he was hundreds of feet in the air. He already knew what was going to happen. He screamed as he plummeted to the ground.
THE ENDLuckly, the motel room was empty. Alexander tossed his bat on the nightstand and sunk into the bed, he immediately fell asleep. BANG, BANG, CRASH. That´s the sound Alexander woke up to the next morning. He shot out of bed grabbed his bottle of raid and turned to face whatever mutant ant that was behind him. But to his surprise no ant was there. He slowly walked outside and looked both ways but astonishingly no ants were to be seen.
[[ next ]]Alexander decided to help the man after all he was human and he was alive. With a grunt Alexander lifted him into the back seat of his car and laid him down. After Alexander got back in the car and got around the pile-up He said
¨so I saw that you broke your legs¨.
¨yeah¨ replied Tom.
¨I´m visiting here from the US, and while I was driving to paris the cars in front of me spun out. When I crawled over to check if anyone was alive all the bodies were covered in ants¨.
[[ next]]Alexander decided to ditch the man. The forces of karma decided to kill you, a giant ant pops out of no where and you die slowly and painfully.
Alexander albany was driving 60 MPH on the highway driving to paris. His plan was to drive to the capital and search for survivors there. This whole situation was still hard to belive, the ants, the tiny black creatures no one cared about were taking over the world!(or at least his small town outside of paris). The tall skyscrapers of paris were appearing on the horizon. He had a good feeling about this.
[[Paris]]As paris became closer and more detailed, Alexander became more and more hopeful about what he might find there. He could see lights but didn´t know if they were just left on or if somebody had recently turned them on. Eventually he was driving in the cities out-skirts, no one was in their houses or walking on the streets and everything remained eerily quiet. A few hours later up ahead he saw a giant wall that looked to be built out of scrap-metal. It was built in the center of the citie and a giant door was in the middle. His hope soared as the door was opened up but it stopped half way and then fell back down. For a moment he was confused then understanding washed over him. He slowly turned around and saw a giant ant looming behind him. The ant was about 40 meters away but it could reach him in seconds. Wasting no time he jumped back in his car and drove towards the ant and picked up the bottle of raid in the seat next to him and poked a hole in it. It made a hissing sound that told you it was going to explode. By now the ant was 10 meters away and rushing at him he threw the bottle out the window of his car and it rolled under the ant. He drove away a couple meters and turned the car around. BOOM!. Alexander looked up hopefully and saw the ant on the ground. But to his supprise the bottle was still hissing on the ground and showed no signs of it exploding. Up on top of the wall was a woman holding a shot gun. ¨Thank you!¨ Alexander called out. He drove through the gate. On the other side there had to be thousands of humans, most had guns or spears to fight off ants. This was it, he was safe finally! He could definitely say that today was no ordinary day.
THE ENDFor the first time since yesterday morning he felt hungry, tom was hungry too. They decided they would find a grocery store and stock up. They pulled into a parking lot of a grocery store and walked inside.
Alexander was finally full again as he turned into an aile a leg shot out and tripped him. He heard a gun cock but before it could shoot he rolled over and lashed his leg into the air hitting the person in the face, they fell to the ground and alexander took their gun. When he recognised who the person was his jaw fell slack. It was Tom!
"look I'm sorry, I thought it would be better if I was alone."
"Yeah and take my car, drive off with you're so called broken legs".
" I'm ending this now". With that Alexander raised the gun and shot him in the head. Now he decided he would head to paris. There had to be people there.
