Every nights walk home was pretty much the same. Same dogs barking, same cars, and even the same trash on the street. Nothing ever changed on my way home. Every night I would walk past orange construction cones blocking traffic from going in or out of an old church parking lot, and every night I would kick one and it would land in the same spot everyday and be back at its post the next day, and that was just one of the many things that would never change. It never snowed, rained or sleated on those streets, but they always seemed to be damp like it had just stopped raining. Except for today, today was different. I could tell the moment I got outside that things were going to be different today. Instead of everything being cold and damp, it was a dry crisp night air, and no dogs were barking. I stood there a moment contemplating this then started on my walk home thinking tonights going to be different tonights going to be something to remember.

I left my red wagon outside of the apartment building. I only wanted to run inside long enough to get more newspapers. I got into the building, and pushed the button for the elevator. Nothing. I hit the button again. Still nothing. I *hate* elevators. I glared at the little illuminated buttons of the floor numbers, and wrung my hands together. There was nothing I could do. I could take the stairs, but I lived seven stories up. Noticing my shoelace untied, i bent down to tie it. The doors of the elevator snapped open, and me, not paying attention, took a step inside, finding no florr, only open shaft. I fell, with a "ahhhhhhhhh.....".

I think I was out for a while, but I dont know how long. I did know that something was broken. My leg and back were killing me, I even started to cry as i tried to get up. My foot was stuck between some cables. I screamed for help, but my mouth was dry, I barely made a squeek. It seemed like forever. It was dark. The only light I could see was from the open elevator door. Thats when I heard it...

There was a low squeek, something that sounded like unoiled mechanical parts rubbing against each other, and a brush of something furry against my hand. I gasped, bringing my hand quickly to my chest. I blinked into the darkness of the bottom of the building but saw nothing. Another creak. I looked up. I saw at the top of the shaft, proably five storeis up, the bottom of the elevator. Suddenly, I felt something gnawing at my shoe. I looked over and was able to make out the outside of a large furry rat chewing at my shoe tangled int he cables. I *hate* rats. As the rat gnawed, the elevator up above began to shake.

my patience died a little death as I gathered up my nerve and brought myself to stand again. I wasn't in too much pain. Well, I could stand, maybe walk..Didn't think anything was TOO broken. Plus I had tougher issues to deal with. Such as the elevator above me. I *love* elevators. I saw a gate off to my left, so I limped over and tried it. Mercifully.. it opened up into some sort of maintenence level. There were janitor's tools... mops... buckets... formaldehyde? shiny scythes? Meat hooks? i closed the gate behind me, eager to leave this episode of my life... I looked down... and the rat that was previously dining on my shoe was sitting in front of me... sitting with its two little paws in the air. There was enough light to see that this rat had pale blue eyes... Creepy.

As if the day wasn't wierd enough, the rat decided that now would be a good time to speak to me.... He *i saw the balls* said....
