EB: we’re not talking, dave.

TG: what?

EB: we’re dead, dave. you’re dead. we were never meant to win. we were doomed. everyone was.

EB: i’m your imagination. you’re making this conversation.

TG: I want john back

EB: but i’m not john.

EB: i’m whoever you want me to be.

GG: its better this way dave!!!

GG: then we can talk all the time :B


GC: 1’LL B3 WHO3V3R YOU W4NT M3 TO B3, D4V3.



TG: stop

TG: stop

EB: then get off the computer.

You do. You shove away desperately, coming back to yourself.

You’re in your room. Turntables nearby, bed unmade, cords making the floor a danger zone. You blink. The chat is gone. Everything that you had been watching show up in different colors just… disappears. It’s an empty chat between you and John.

So you try again with a deep breath.

TG: john???

You don’t get a reply this time.

You leave the computer. You can’t deal with his fucking prankster’s gambit right now. You need food. So you log off and leave your room.

It smells like pizza. You hear a voice.

“Got take-out, lil’ guy!”

You dash to the kitchen. Your heart literally hurts. There’s no one there. No pizza. The smell is gone.

Someone knocks at the door. A muffled voice comes through.

“Hey, Dave! We gonna hang out or what, or are you gonna ignore your best friend?”

You run. Rip the door open. No one there. In fact, you’re on the edge of your roof. You turn around. No apartment. Yes, you’re on the roof. You hear traffic. Looking down, there’s no cars.

You see Rose. Her long scarf is whipping violently in the wind as she walks down the middle of the road. She drops her black and violet knitting needles, and it’s so loud the way they clatter on asphalt in this silent city.


She looks up at you. And then she’s gone.

EB: i’m whoever you want me to be, dave.

EB: you’re dead.

EB: i’m dead.

EB: we are all dead, dave.

EB: you’re in your head, dave.

You’re not even at your computer. But you’re seeing his messages. You’re not on your roof. You’re no where.

You’re dead.

There’s nothing and it’s fucking infuriating. There’s no black space. You’re not floating. You’re nothing, but you’re conscious. You’re no where and you’re nothing and you’re dead. Absolutely dead.

No miracles. No plot twist. No happy ending.

You’re dead. And honestly, you didn’t expect more than this.
Was bored during my theatre history class. Drabbled this out in half an hour of boredness. 

Miss you all<3
