“You are getting your color back which is good to see,” she said while shining that damn flashlight in my eyes again. “Do you have to do that? My head really hurts.” “What if I like doing it?” “Well then, I suppose that would be OK, wouldn’t want to suck the fun out of it […]

#4 What Now?

A glowing tunnel of spinning stars

I must have blacked out again because everyone is gone. The clean bill of health is lost in proofreading. It’s just me and the blinky lights. There is something about this room. A pulsing resonance you can feel. Is that what they meant by sync? Maybe they are tuning me like a radio. That would […]
