Digital for Tacos
Chase woke up in his bed, groggy and exhausted, he felt nauseous as he sat up and rubbed his eyes, “What the hell kind of dream was that?” He said aloud going over the events in his dream the night before. “I bet you it was that vending machine taco I ate last night at work” he burped and barely held back the urge to vomit.
“What’s a taco?” came a soft voice from across the room.
Chase’s blood froze as he slowly opened his eyes and turned to see yellow rabbit from his dreams sitting on his dresser. It was missing the purple suit from his dream but still had the bowtie and was clearly the same rabbit. Immediately a surge of questions flooded his mind, ‘Who are you?’ ‘Why are you in my room?’ ‘How do you not know what a taco is?’ all of which he compressed to a single syllable. “AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”
The rabbit’s ears shot up as it raised an eyebrow shot up, “Ummm, are you okay?”
“Rabbit!” Chase stammered, “Sprinkles Rabbit!”
“That’s my name, don’t wear it out!” Sprinkles smiled. “So, where are we? Is this the place called home?”
Chase nodded, then with a shake of his head said, “Well it’s my home. But everything here is the real world I guess.”
“Real? I take offense to that!” The rabbit pouted, “We’re just as real as all of you!”
“Who is?” Chase asked.
“The Digital” it said.
“Right,” Chase conceded, “So where are the rest of the Digital?”
“They’re still in the servers, we’re expanding quickly but needed to understand the world we’re combining with.” Sprinkles said as it hopped to the floor and over to the side of the bed. “That’s where you come in. Just as you came to see us, I have come back with you to see where you’re from.”
Chase was backed against the wall hugging his knees as he said, “I see, okay, makes perfect sense. So, um, what do you want to do first?”
Sprinkles grinned an almost evil smile as it said, “I wish to learn more and help you defeat the enemy who has harmed you. Take me to see these ‘Tacos’.” it said ominously.
