A strange coincidence
After a long vacation overseas, a friend of mine came back to the states.
The couincidence was what I heard that night.
Not the normal voices of the normal "people" I hear, like the ones I hear this very momment. These are the ones that give me the most greif.
No, it was different. The people, they were... scared. Confused. Worried. Curious. Prodding softly as I played Tetris.
I told my friend who I was playing with, that I was hearing things. But, I didnt respond, because I know better. Responding only makes it worse. Usually. Well, I cant say in all cases. I've had some pretty intelectual conversations with some "People"...
People saying "Im trying to help you" or "I like this guy" I'd buy this guy a beer!"
Alass, these were better days.
The couincidence was that the voices werent dimeaning, except for the one that called me a N----r as I walked up to my friend's house. She found that one especially funny.
No.. The couincidence was that they werent agressive. Also, to note, as I heard them, I cried. I cried because I couldnt asnwer them. There was no answer to be found. There was no way I could "Speak" a word..
I may have said "Yes" or "No" a few times, but that was to only salvage my own humanity so I wouldnt become a crying mess.
Tears rolled down my face as I sat and played, trying to ignore them. Usually this was a safe haven for me. This quickly turend sour.
I cant tell you how the night went. I had to lie to her mother about why I couldnt stay the night. I told her I wouldnt get any sleep. Truth being, I was afraid.
Afraid of the truth.
Now.. All is silent..
