Waking Up in Wonderland

By Noizchild

Thriller / Horror


Halo Zero: Alpha:

She just talks on without listening. He sits quiet and listens to her talk on and on about useless things. That is all he has at this time.

She talks non-stop about her boring job at the office. She talks about her friends in the states and at work. She talks about her vanity and looks. She even talks about things that she saw on TV or heard on the radio. He sits there and listens in silence.

Why does he put up with so much useless drabble? That's all he can do. You see, he couldn't talk back to her. He has been rendered mute years before he met her. He cannot see her either. He has been blind for years now. He also can't feel anything physically or emotionally, never for a long time. He also can't remember anything about himself. The only memories that he has are the ones that he shares with her now.

However, his mind has a new level of hell locked inside of it. For now, it is only in bits and pieces. Even those bits and pieces are trying to reach out to other to rebuild the truth to him. Yet, he doesn't really want that to happen. He has run out of ways to stop the truth from reawaking upon the city that he calls home for the past three years. He does not want that to happen. But, he does not know how to stop it from happening all over again. He already spent up his previous options in the past. To bury the truth again the way that he always has will cost him dearly this time. It has all pushed him to sit and wait for the inevitable to swallow everything up once again.

In the mean time, all that he has is her talking his ears off until she leaves for work or goes to sleep.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time.

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book.

Oh, d...
