The Shutdown–By The Insane Writer

The xbox hard drive had caused a government shutdown according to the news. It was like the movie, Hackers, only this was real-life. But Josh didn’t believe a word of it. How could a gaming system cause something so big, and from inside a federal office itself. How was it possible? He shook his head in disbelief and continued the two-mile walk to work. The guys were not going to believe this. It was like the whole damn world was going to hell and back. He frowned at that thought and started to cross the street when a dark sedan pulled up in front of him and a clearly marked government official stepped out of the vehicle.

“Hello Mr. Sterestom. It wasn’t the gaming system that caused it. It was you. You need to come with us immediately.” The government official said. Josh shook his head and backed away. It had to have been a bad dream. It couldn’t be true. How could they read his thoughts. And how could he have been involved. He hadn’t done anything wrong. He was just a mere college student who worked in a gaming store.
