Chapter – 14 | Blank Faces
“I.. am.. here, to see my friends.” I stammered,
“Who do you think you’re calling friends? You ruined our children’s life, get lost now.” the lady shouted,
What did she mean, I ruined someone’s life?
What is going on, what’s happening?
Her husband stood there silent, staring at me with disgust,
Chills ran down my spine, my whole body went numb and I couldn’t move.
Just then a guy around my age came and walked me away, apologizing to them.
He was talking to me all the time, asking if I was okay and telling who he was,
Apparently, he was their neighbor,
And invited me to his house.
My head was blank the whole time, I couldn’t take in any of his words, nothing made sense anymore.
Offering me water, he said to me, “I know what happened to you, I’m so sorry.”
He caught my attention, I started at him without saying a word, then he showed me a picture.
“This is Carl and Cindy do you remember?” he said,
And that one picture brought back the ugliest memories I never thought I had,
They both were being laughed at and made fun of by those people around me,
Who were they? Why can’t I remember them?
All those faces were blank, I don’t know why, I don’t know anything.
I started shivering and sweating, my throat went dry,
What was happening to me?
And before I know, everything went black.
A faint voice kept calling me, who is it?
Is it Joe? Please save me Joe, please… save.. me.
