not somewhere else, 22/May/17

why am I here?
... our hero pondered the question for only as long as needed.....


I'm here because I'm not somewhere else........
.... he felt this sufficient answer to placate the enquirer.... he certainly hoped so as he had nothing better.........

what do I hope to get out of being here?
...... yet more questions, questions no doubt needing answers answers..... our hero felt put-upon.... cornered by such probing........ an overwhelming urge to go all-out feral........


expectations always lead to disappointment........
.... he felt and certainly hoped this to be enough to satisfy the interrogator.... he certainly hoped so as he was running out of words......

what will I be taking away from this?
.... more curiousity unravelling before our hero's very ears and eyes........


me........
.... our hero was at a loss as to how else to respond....... he never was very good with other humans anyway and indeed often regarded himself as other than..... not through ego just in a way other.......

....... feeling that this was enough questions for now our hero lapsed once more into his usual silence... of mute'lation.... having worn out any words he used he felt it was the least he could do.......
