ANTHONY ZAMBRANO - DIG
Anthony Zambrano is a 19 year old writer who has been writing since the age of 11. He will be attending a university in the fall to further study filmmaking.
Buried under the front lawn of the White House is a golden, metal box packed with a stash of documents. Two senators buried those documents there, they were evidence. Evidence that showed just how many crimes their colleagues across the aisle have actually committed.
They waited until the perfect time to release these documents, and when that night came they both headed to the White House, avoided security with their faces, and reached the front lawn with a small duffel bag packed with two hand shovels. After twenty minutes of digging, they became worried.
“Are you sure this is the spot?” the first senator asked the second.
“It has to be,” the other answered.
“Fuck!” he threw the shovel to the ground, “ I bet they found it!”
“Maybe we dug deeper?” the second said, picking up the shovel beginning to dig.
Just about a minute passed before the shovel connected with something and made a CLINK.
“I think I got it,” the second senator said.
Both celebrated quietly as they knelt down next to the hole. The first senator dipped his head down into it, attempting to retrieve the box. He expected dirt to flick up into his eyes, but it didn’t. He got a pain near his lower back, but kept going.
He struggled against something that felt like cloth against the top of his head until it gave way. He looked around, and for a second, thought, Where is that light coming from down here?
He focused his eyes, and seen the second senator take a giant step backwards, shouting, “What the fuck!” That’s w hen he realized the strangest thing had happened: his head went into that hole, and came right out of his own ass.
