Caleb picked up his cellular telephone and inquired "Hello?"
The voice on the other end retorted with a clever "Yes?"
Caleb asked a peculiar question, knowing he was speaking to his wife of 3 years on the other end, "Is Caleb there?"
Unphased by this question, his wife Sarah replied back saying "Uhm, lemme see." There was a brief moment of silence while Caleb waited for an answer. He could see through her eyes and he knew that she was looking at Caleb in his house, laying back, motionless, staring at the ceiling with blank look on his face. "No, he's still gone."
Caleb slowly lowered his phone to his side and dropped it to the ground. He took in his surroundings and knew he was standing on a country road with a few houses a couple hundred feet from him. A large tree was off to his right and it had long, sturdy branches that swayed in the wind, above his head. In front of him was a small bridge crossing a creek carrying what was probably irrigation water to surrounding farmlands. Across the creek was another road that curved to the right and Caleb could see in the distance, two mangy-looking dogs barreling down the road towards him.
Panic set in and seconds later the dogs were right in front of him flaring their teeth and barking menacingly. Without another thought Caleb jumped up to incredible heights and grabbed the nearest branch in the tree next to him. The branch was flimsy but didn't break, it just swung him down to ground and back up. Caleb tried grabbing more branches to try and get away from the ravenous dogs. He swung down again and stuck his feet out trying to kick the dogs away but he lost his grip on the branches and rolled a few yards on the ground.
An annoying squeaking noise was the next thing Caleb had to deal with because he next found himself awake in his room, hearing his chinchilla's wheel turning, making loud noises. Caleb rolled over and put his good ear into his pillow. He fell back asleep, minutes later.
In military uniform, he was standing in a small room with about 40 other people. The instructors asked all new people to raise their hand and move to the corner of the room. A voice spoke out saying something about "delousing" and the instructor reprimanded the vocal maggot. Caleb, being new, was afraid of being "deloused" and didn't raise his hand. The people in the corner were informed that they will be in great pain for the next hour or so. Caleb moved on with the rest of the group to another room with a pool that was Olympic sized in length but only hot tub sized in width. The instructors told us that we need to swim the short width of the pool as many times as we could in 30 seconds.
Caleb dropped down into the pool after the signal was given and he pushed against the side of pool and quickly reached the other side, pushing his way back. He noted that the bottom of the pool was nowhere to be seen. It had been 30 seconds so he came up and he saw a bunch of Nerf basketballs being thrown around by everyone. Caleb threw his ball across the pool and watched it get lost in the midst of the many other basketballs being thrown about. The point of this exercise eluded him and he soon found himself slipping away into nothingness.
The alarm, beeping loudly while mixing this annoying noise with an equally annoying static radio noise, woke him up at 7 a.m.
