A Zebra's Tale

Insidious turned to the spaceship's mainframe, clearly irritated: "Yes, what else, Stevejobs?" "Are you ready for the bad news?"

Wait... that's it! By stepping with her ionized foot on a striped beetle, Ginny 2.0 must have rattled the cage of every banded living thing within bio-chronological range. It's a miracle her whole city wasn't stampeded out of existence... or was it? Ginny's fingers dipped into her pocket, where her secret weapon was. She withdrew her iPod Touch, switched to the jazz station, and maxed the volume. Monk and Coltrane at Carnegie Hall- perfect! Soon, a satisfied smile played on her weary lips, as she watched the last zebra clonk onto its side, fast asleep.

The End
