LeTerrible lurched toward the abandoned ice truck. He had discovered a while back that he didn't really need to lurch, but kept it up for the look of things. The truck was standing in a puddle of water. The tropical sun blazed down, bringing the whole thing to equilibrium.
The door was locked, which proved to be merely a second of hindrance. It went wogga wogga wogga, as it landed next to the boarding hose back porch. Scattered across the floor of the truck were hundreds of diamonds.
Now, one of the good things about being a zombie was, obviously, superior strength. The downside seemed to be a lack of visual acuity and hand dexterity. After a few frustrating moments of trying to pick through the diamonds, leTerrible picked up the truck and shook the diamonds onto the ground. Discarding the truck with a huge crash, he stooped over the pile of glittering stones. What he was after had to be there.
And there it was! An obviously larger diamond lay at the edge of the pile. He pushed at it with his hands and lofted it into his palm. As he disappeared in a flash of brilliant light, he cried out, "BRAINZZZZZ!" He really didn't know why.
