A man arose from a bed with a jolt, disoriented and unsure of everything. Where was he? How did he get here? Why was he naked? What fabric softener was used on these sheets that he was under? He scanned the room he was in, giving his eyes a few second to focus. It was sterile and spartan. There were items in the room, but he did not recognize them. What was their use?
He pushed himself up from the bed and began to look at the items. None were useful, so he quickly lost interest. He began to scan the walls and look for an exit. He felt around for a while but could find no door. There were no windows for him to peek out of. He was trapped in the room with no memory, no food, nothing to do, and no escape. He gave up, sat on the bed, and waited.
Hours passed by as he sat there, thinking. He could remember earlier parts of his life, but when he thought about how he got here or why he was here, the memories were fuzzy. It was almost as if they were being blocked by a mental barrier. Nothing he did was bringing himself closer to remembering.
Suddenly a part of the wall opened. A doorway formed, and a few unknown figures stepped through. The man stood up immediately and braced himself. His body went into a fight or flight response. He was ready for anything. Two people stood in the room opposite him. He looked at one, noticing that he was a doctor immediately.
When he gazed upon the other one, he was shocked. He gasped as he took a step back. There before him stood a man that looked exactly like him. The only differences were the lack of blemishes on this imposter’s face and the terrible, atrocious, garbage haircut that he had. I mean, the haircut was, like, really fucking bad. So so bad. How could they fuck it up? Ugh, Anyways.
“Who are you?” the man yelled at the imposter, immediately wanting answers. He had not noticed that he had completely forgone formalities or courtesies.
“He is you,” the first strange man answered. “We cloned you, making his face look more perceivable than yours. Astonishing, yeah?”
The man was taken aback. He stared hard for a few seconds before replying, “I mean, yes, the face looks incredible. But what the hell did you do to his hair?”
