  • I need a story small enough to read on my phone.

  • I tape word inched along measuring its sentence.

  • The tape word inched along measuring its sentence. Some folks showed up and taped the word worm on him; they were itching to measure his sentience

  • but he just kept measuring sentences until he came to the end of the book. Then he leaped off the table and inched his way into a hole in the wall filled with encyclopedias.

  • Dr. Edgars was elated to have successfully engineered his first artificial life form: a literal bookworm. But now he needed to find it in that wall of encyclopedias, for he wanted

  • to create an entire ecosystem of bookanimals, and he needed that worm's DNA. He ripped out a page and made an origami bird, hoping to scare the bookworm out of the encyclopedias.

  • The bookworm revealed he was his late Uncle Johann. Johann was reborn to remember the meaning of books. His font was still in use when he died in 1815.

  • I was in the next room,1817, at the hospital, in traction. I heard this Uncle Johann bloke scream an enochian curse and then he died. I moved the only muscle I could to alert the

  • nurse, but unfortunately it was in an unmentionable location. The nurse snorted and left my hospital room. Meanwhile outside, dead Uncle Johann's curse was bending space, and I

  • found myself existing in multiple locations at one time. I felt myself experiencing every possible emotion at once. I became an omnipotent observer. I became everything everywhere.
