Falcon Boy: Vol. 1: 51 ‘… falling into apocryphal disarray’

As the two superheroes lay blinking in the light, Ellis thought they both looked slightly lost. Falcon Boy stood up, dusted himself down and offered a gauntleted hand for Ellis to shake.

‘Ellis, on behalf of ourselves, the town, the surrounding area, the country, the globe and the entire solar system, we would like to thank you very much for rescuing us.’

FBAPPEARANCE2Falcon Boy thought that the time was right for him to sound dignified.

‘Indeed,’ he continued gravely, ‘I would like to think that your rescuing us will somehow be pivotal in preventing the universe from losing its long-established and fundamental equilibrium, and thereby falling into apocryphal disarray.’

Ellis wasn’t really sure what he was talking about and hoped that he wasn’t about to tell another joke. Falcon Boy was on a roll now.

‘Bewilder Bird and I are both convinced that Dr Don’t Know is up to absolutely no good, and that our being kidnapped is just the start of some kind of cunning and despicably malevolent master-plan to cause extensive chaos, wreak real havoc and generally make everything not very nice.’

Falcon Boy finished speaking. Bewilder Bird nodded his agreement with Falcon Boy’s assessment of the situation.

Ellis wasn’t one for making snap judgements about people. She preferred to take her time and get to know them. Her initial impressions of the men were reasonably favourable but she did find herself feeling surprised at the sight of Falcon Boy suddenly standing stock-still like an old, wonky statue while Bewilder Bird flexed his biceps.

Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
