Everyday when I woke up, I remembered that Amanda was gone. And it always seemed that a time has passed since then.
A long time maybe, since yesterday.
I never forgot to dial to her regardless of the fact that it was always switched off.
The room I lived in, was painted blue from inside. The mirror in the bathroom was broken. And I had three novels in my bookshelf , 'The longest night to come' , 'All the starts fell apart' and 'The room painted black'.
I would read each of them, though never was able to finish. However, somehow, I knew how were they going to end.
Days were often the same, and nights too. I spent them sleeping or playing video games and often holding my phone next to my ear trying to call her.
I hated lights, all kind of them. When I would wake up every time, I hoped it's night so that I could walk myself to grocery store without being disturbed.
A night, after the switch off tone on her phone, I spoke.
I closed my eyes and spoke,
"I miss you, so much."
And then it was her voice.
And I was not amazed, I knew she would have missed me.
"Where had you gone?" I asked.
"Somewhere, You can't be here."
"I want to, I want it so bad." I said.
"There is no way to be here." She said.
"There certainly is, beyond the cliff there it lies."
"Have all the stars fallen apart?" She asked after a while.
"No, Maybe all of them broke."
"Save yourself." She said.
And then the voice got lost after I heard a knock at my door.
Who could be here at this hour, I thought. I slide the curtains off the front window. It was day, the light was there and it almost made me blind. Yet I could see Ian martin at my door.
I half opened the door with the chain still intact, and looked through. Ian was there. He looked changed, like he grew up twice in size since last saturday when I had seen him in the bar. He had gotten a different haircut as well with nicely grown pyramid mustache.
"What do you want?" I said.
He thought for a while and said
"I want to save you."
