God's PA System

Characters: me, voice one, voice two, kid

I was sitting in a room where people were listening to a disembodied voice dispensing various spiritual advice. My body felt largely paralyzed, but I somehow managed to move the mouth enough to yell a question out to the room.
me: "Nothing has been said here which indicates higher or godly knowledge. What about explaining very fundamental questions like what happens after death?"
There was a silence for a moment, and people in the room looked around. There were some hiss and static bits that sounded very much like rustling from a PA system. I laughed and made the three-beep tone that phones do when they can't complete your call.
me: (sarcastically) "We're sorry, your call to God can't be completed as dialed. Please check the number and try again. Yeah, this is legit."
The voices on the PA began to argue.
voice one: "How did that get in here?"
voice two: "I told you we shouldn't have lit that candle."
voice one: "Dispatch the implements."
me: (mockingly) "Oooh. The implements!"
When I looked around the room, people seemed frightened. A manhole with a ladder appeared in the room, and I directed them to escape down it.
I noticed there was a refrigerator, and urged the people to load up what was in it into bags to carry with them. When they had trouble finding bags I pulled the crispers out and told them to just carry those. Meanwhile, there was a group of people trying to force entry via a side door.
When the intruders made it in, I faced off against them. They attacked me but somehow using just small gestures with my hands they died in a somewhat bloody fashion. An angry looking kid who was part of the attacking party came up to me and glared. I paused.
kid: "So aren't you going to kill me?"
me: "You're pretty young, so you might not know what you're doing. But generally speaking, I don't particularly want to fight anyone. This could stop right now."
The attacking group retreated warily.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
