Walter Mitty 6th dream

“He took one last drag on his cigarette and snapped it away. Then with that faint, fleeting smile playing about his lips, he faced the firing squad; erect and motionless, proud and disdainful, Walter Mitty the Undefeated, inscrutable to the last.”
Mitty notices a man walking up behind the firing squad. He’s quite they don’t see him coming he pulls out a revolver shots fired one bullet in all the squad members heads. The inscrutable man starts to walk over towards Mitty. Mitty draws his gun the man grabs it right out of his hands and says “thank you”… the man said do you have a lighter Mitty handed it over and lit the cigarette that Mitty just gave him.

“what’s your name?” Asked Mitty

He said “Eric Erickson what are you waiting back here for?”

“The names Mitty and my wife is in the store what brings you here?”

“Out for walk and forgot my cigarettes at home” said Eric “I’m gonna head back home thanks for the talk.”

His wife walks out of the store with the stuff she needed. They get in the car and start to head home. On the way home they pass by this store with a man sneaking around back they didn’t know what it was about so they left it alone and went home. When Mitty got home he walked the dog to the park. They played at the park and the dog was so well behaved Mitty gave him one of the puppy biscuits he just bought. When he got home his wife asked him to check the mail and he saw a flier for army recruits…

222 days in enemy territory; I’ve been so deep undercover that I forgot who’s side I’m really on. My name what’s my name I know it’s Eric Erickson but before that what was my name. “Ahah!” I shouted it so loud that everyone stoped and stared at me then there was a dead silence. In my head I said to my self my name is Mitty how could I forget that such an important detail like that. It’s not like me to forget I remember everything that happens in a day then I report it back home but, today was different I got caught. I had a distraught look on my face. I was starting to panic because everyone was in pandemonium about me being a spy. A man started to walk to me and then put his hand on my shoulder he was going to stab me…

“Mitty your dinner is getting cold come eat” his wife said

“ok lets go eat” said Mitty
