The year is 2081 and the world is now a dystopia where people receive handicaps for their abilities. George and Hazel have a son that is in prison and the story begins with them watching the news.
Well, I'm getting a beer. Why're you crying?
I'm not sure why I'm crying George.
Harrison has broken out of prison and invades the news station. When he arrives, he begins to free the many people enslaved by their handicaps. He makes a live statement and claims his position as emperor. He then proceeds to claim an empress and orders the band to play why the ballerina and he dance.
All of a sudden, the handicap general, Diana Glampers, comes into the studio with a shotgun and gives the two ten seconds before she shoots. She proceeds to shoot both the ballerina and Harrison. Just then, the Bergerons' TV goes black.
When the TV goes out, George goes into the kitchen to grab a beer while Hazel begins to cry. The two don't have any recalection of what just occured and neither are sure why Hazel is crying.
Neither can remember anything, and life continues as normal.
The literary device I chose is irony. Just as Harrison claims his spot as emperor, it is quite ironic when the handicap general comes into the studio and shoots the two soon after.
