Chapter Six of my Online Novel. Desmond, is up for reading now.
In this Chapter, we see a disturbance with the staff of Doctor Alan's office, and we go back to the early days when Desmond first recruited Wendy for his experiment...
PANCAKES FOR YOU
Fresh, steaming, light and fluffy,
Hot from the pan after being cooked just right,
Topped with a glistening pat of melted butter
And drizzled with cooling strands of sweet maple syrup;
I have prepared some delicious pancakes
These aren't just any normal run of the mill pancakes you know.
My pancakes are so special that once you've eaten them – and you will eat them,
Once you have eaten my very special pancakes it will be like a warm glowing ball of wonderful air,
Like the breath of an ether drunken angel misting into an exquisite cloud of amber luminescence
Within your belly, glowing and rising like a floating high that will make you say Oh!
What wonders have these pancakes delivered to me!
And how could I have ever lived without them, these transcendent and beautiful pancakes
Of the ages...
For you see there are some things in life that are not for the majority of mankind to know,
But rather for a select few, chosen by... who knows? Providence? Fate? Divine Will?
It is not for me to say what constellation of existential forces arrayed
For me to choose to share my pancakes with you,
Only to say that share them with you I shall
You should also know that many lives were lost in order for you to have these pancakes
In fact, whole civilizations rose and fell
All in the service of developing the exact, precise, and minutest of ingredients,
A combination of tastes and textures and smells and even sounds
So vast as to form a fractal replication of the soul
That resonates across the reverberations of history...
The voices of an infinite choir singing the praises of my holiest of fluffy delicious pancakes
Pancakes that are so MMMMM good interweaving through the fabric of time and space
And delicately caressing the lips of existence
And then gently, whimsically tippy toeing their way
Into the stomach of Love
And so there you go.
Pancakes for you.
Eat them now
And enjoy forever
Updates, works in progress, perhaps the occasional manifesto or two...
