The Junk Box – p.15

February 17, 2013 at 8:47 pm Leave a comment

The garbage truck emptied the dumpster and then a man jumped out and picked up the box. He walked around to the back of the truck and tried to toss it in, but it was stuck fast to his hands. Even through the thick gloves he wore, he could feel the tingle as the box refused to be thrown.

The man was very confused, and he tried everything he could think of to get the box out of his grip and into the truck, but it was no good. After a few minutes, the driver leaned out of the window and yelled back at him to hurry up, so the man asked for help.

The two of them simply could not throw the box away. They found they could transfer it between them, but no matter who was holding it, it stuck to their hands when they attempted to put it in the truck, and would not budge or allow itself to be turned over. Eventually they got tired of trying, and were a bit disturbed by it besides, so they set the box down behind a dumpster, out of sight, and went about their business.

The rats moved in as soon as the truck left the alley.
