Melvin

 

Day 1193

It was another nice day in the life of Melvin. He woke up and had a delicious cup of coffee.  He checked the forecast and it showed it was partly cloudy with a 40% chance of rain.

“I really hope it does not rain today.” Said Melvin.  He was not a fan of the rain.

He drove to the office.  Traffic was light and there were no jams.

He made it to the office safely.  “Good morning Melvin.” Said the receptionist.

“Good morning Gladdis.” Said Melvin.

Melvin sat down at his computer.  He opened an email from the CEO. It read:

Great news everyone!  The company stock has gone up!  As part of our efforts with profit sharing expect to receive an additional $200 to your next paycheck.  Keep up the good work!

Sincerely,

Bob Wentworth

“Wow, this is great!” Exclaimed Melvin.  Just like three weeks ago (he thought).

Melvin continued working for a while.  He walked over to the water cooler.

“Hey, how is it going guys?”

“Oh hey Melvin. We were just talking about the game last night!”

“Oh ya!  Who you guys pulling for these days?”

“We all pull for the Jets!”

“Yeah and they won last night!”

“It was great!  It was looking like they were going to lose and they threw a touchdown pass right near the end and it clinched the game.”

“It was huge!”

“Yeah man.  Back-to-back games now.  Same thing happened last week!  Not exactly the same but they did score that touchdown right at the end.”

“That was great too!”

“So what else is going on with you guys?”

“Probably gonna check out The Squad tonight.”

“Oh yeah, I heard they have a new episode.”

“Yeah I hope they can defeat Brainmaster.  He is tough!”

“Yeah it could be one of their toughest battles yet!”

Melvin got back to work.  They had free brownies in the break room!   They had nuts and no nuts.  Melvin liked brownies so he was a happy camper.

He got through work and headed home.

But his car got a flat tire and he had to pull over.  “Oh crap!” said Melvin.  He went on his Guyco insurance App.  He put in a request for roadside maintenance.    Expected time until arrival was “2 minutes.”   Only two minutes? (Thought Melvin.)

The helpful man appeared in only one minute and 50 seconds.  He got out of the car.  “Hello Melvin!”

“Hello sir!  Wow, you guys got here fast!”

“Absolutely.  You can’t get anywhere on a flat tire!”

The man put on Melvin’s back up tire.  “You should be good to go now Melvin.  Make sure you take that tire to the mechanic and get it fixed.  You hit a nail!”   He got in his truck and drove off.

Wow.  That was so fast.  (Thought Melvin)

He drove home.

Melvin arrived home and his wife was happy to see him.

“Hey honey!  Welcome home.  I made lasagna for you. Your favorite.”  She smiled.

“Awesome!”

“How did things go today?”

“Well I got a flat tire on the way home.”

“Oh no!  That is dreadful!”

“Yeah but the roadside assistance came really fast.  Only 2 minutes!”

“That is good to hear.   Glad they could help you out.”

They ate the lasagna happily.

After dinner and clean up they went to their living room.  His wife spoke up, “Do you want to watch the new episode of The Squad tonight?”

“Yeah sure why not?”

It was a harrowing episode.  The Brainmaster was a android with plans of universe domination.  He had captured Ultraman as well as Amazing Girl.   They were being tortured and he was planning to kill them soon.

Melvin’s wife watched through her fingers.  “Oh no!”

But just as it was about to be too late for Ultraman, that was when the Quickster showed up!  He came in at lightspeed and was able to defeat the Brainmaster and save his comrades.

“Woo!   That was a close one!”  Said Melvin’s wife.  She was relieved.

“I really wasn’t too worried.” Said Melvin.  “The good guys always win in The Squad.”

Melvin got sleepy and went to bed.

Day 1194

It was quite a nice day outside. Melvin woke up feeling refreshed.  He enjoyed his morning coffee.  He checked the forecast and it showed it was partly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain.

“I really hope it does not rain today.” Said Melvin.

He drove to the office.  Traffic was light and there were no jams.

He made it to the office safely.  “Good morning Melvin.” Said the receptionist.

“Good morning Gladdis.” Said Melvin.

Melvin grabbed some M&M’s from one of the containers in the break room and made his way to his office.

He sat down at his computer.  He opened an email from the CEO. It read:

Great news everyone!  Company profits are up!  Some profits will be used to hire new remote workers to assist with sales.  Keep up the good work!

Sincerely,

Bob Wentworth

Melvin nodded in approval.  Profits just keep on going up (Melvin thought).

Melvin walked over to the water cooler.  The guys were there.

“Hey Melvin! How ya doin’ ?”

“Doing good.  You guys catch The Squad last night?”

“Yeah man it was crazy!  I was worried the Brainmaster was going to win but luckily the Quickster showed up right in the nick of time.”

“It was definitely a close one.” Said Melvin.

“It sure was.  Guess what man?  I got a new car yesterday!”

“Wow! A new car?”

“Yes sir!  Got a great deal on it.  We had to negotiate and fight for it but I was able to get 2k under what I wanted to pay!”

“That is amazing!”

“Yeah man we are just very fortunate.  Lady luck is always smiling on us!   Melvin, you hear the new song from The Frontstreet Boys?”

“Oh no I haven’t.”

“It just got released yesterday.  They are playing it a bunch on P 105.1.”

“Cool cool my man! Congrats on the car!”

As Melvin was driving home he turned on the radio.  The announcer spoke: hey hey everyone check out this sweet new tune from The Frontstreet Boys! And the song played.  It was a catchy tune with a nice hook.

Choo Choo Train 

Don’t Go Off Those Tracks

Once you get off 

You never come back 

Choo Choo Train 

Don’t go Off Those Tracks 

Once you get off 

You never come back

And so on.

“That is a pretty catchy tune. I didn’t know people still made songs about trains.” Said Melvin.

(FAST FORWARD IN TIME)

 

Melvin opens the book called Mind Men and begins to read it.

The main character is a crime fighter by the name of “Maximind.”  He is the hero which helps to guard his city against danger.  He does not possess vast powers.  His ability is telekinesis, he can move things with his mind.  He has limits to his power and can only use his telekinesis in bursts.  Other than that he is a skilled martial artist and tactician.

The story begins with a bank robbery.   The bankers have hostages and they have the cops pinned down outside.

The commanding officer looks to another as they are pinned down behind their cars. “Call him.”

Maximind arrives and walks onto the scene.  The commanding officer looks at him “Maximind, we have a hostage situation.”

“Don’t worry Captain.  I’ll handle this one.” Maximind spoke confidently.

Maximind moved around the side of the building.  There was a gunman posted at the door.   He focused.  The gun of the gunman flew out of his hand as if it was ripped out.  There was shock on his face.  Maximind closed in and dispatched the gunman with some karate chops.

Maximind looked into the bank and he reached out with his mind.  He could sense the other gunmen.  Their guns flew out of their hands and were scattered close to the door.  Maximind moved inside quickly.   The gunmen saw Maximind and attempted to attack with hand-to-hand combat but he was able to dispatch them easily.

The police moved in and arrested all of the gunmen.  The day was saved!

The captain looked at the hero, “Good work today Maximind!”

“No problem Captain.  All in a day’s work.” Maximind said cheerfully. He made his move towards the back of the bank and made a sneaky exit.

Just a typical superhero story, thought Melvin.  He continued reading.

The hero returned to his apartment and was wearing plain clothing.  His girlfriend was chilling on the couch.  “Hey babe I am home.”

The girlfriend seemed a annoyed. ” Where were you?  I wanted to hang out.”

“Babe, I had to go and save the day!”

“Yeah I saw.”    She looked towards the TV.  The local news was covering the story of the bank robbery.   The police chief was their too, “Yeah we could not have done it without Maximind.  He was the hero today!”

“Good job on saving the day babe!” Said the girlfriend.

“Thanks a lot honey.  I need to go and train.”   Maximind drove out to the junkyard near town so he could develop and hone his skills.

“I must work on some new techniques.” Said Maximind.  He did his training.
