The Card

by Anonymous | Score: 4200

BOOM! I woke up with a start. A statue had just fallen and broke. There was a man who looked like a marketing director with a axe. 
"I broke that!"
Suddenly the statue started to shake. BOOM! It exploded, shattering to pieces. There was one thing inside: a playing card. I rushed over to the man, paying no attention to the playing card. 
"Who are you?" I asked.
"I am a director," he answered, "By the name of Zander."
"Oh. I am a economist." I said.
Our conversation was suddenly stopped because a man in black ran from a bank. The bank was being robbed! Then a turtle walked up, with a shoemaker behind him.
"Trevor! Don't escape!" the shoemaker shouted, chasing after the turtle who was heading for the playing card. He got to it and took a bite. There was a loud sound and then I could hear nothing at all. 

I woke up in bed. It was a dream.
