Chapter 1

"Hello"

"Oh, hello there"

"Nice weather today, eh?

"I wouldn't know, not much for weather"

"I'm sure if you looked up, you could form an opinion"

"No, just not one for it"

"Well, alright then"

"..."

"..."

"I think I might be dead"

"That's quite the conversation starter"

"Well, think about it"

"I did, and you can't be dead"

"Why not?"

"Because I'm not dead"

"Are you sure?"

"Most certainly"

"How would you know?"

"Because I know, or at least I hope so"

"So you don't know?"

"Not really, but if being dead is a feeling, and I don't feel it, it stands to reason that I'm not dead"

"What if you're just a really stubborn dead person?"

"Dead people can't be stubborn"

"Have you met any dead people?"

"I've met people before they were dead"

"Were they quite disagreeable?"

"Not particularly"

"Then there you go"

"I still think I can't be dead"

"Well then, what if you aren't, but I am?"

"What?"

"Well, say I was dead, and was talking to you, that's possible"

"If I were at the station and you were on the train, would you be able to converse with me?"

"... If I were at the door before the train took off"

"...Well, you got me there"

"..."

"..."

"If I do turn out to be dead, what is there to do about it?"

"Nothing, you're dead, that's what being dead is"

"... Seems like a waste of time"

"More like punishment for it"

"How do you figure?"

"How did you live your life?"

"To be honest, it still feels like I'm living it"

"Life had to continue for you. Your normal life isn't saturated enough, not enough in there to call it a full bottle, so what's left to do but to never close the cap?"

"You know a lot for a living person"

"who knows, maybe I am dead, like you said before"

"That would be a right shame"

"No, why know more about the dead than the living, if they don't care to listen?"

"... I'm listening"

"But will you remember?"

"I suppose not, if I'm dead"


"..."

"I think, if I were alive, we could've been friends"

"Maybe"

"Would you have liked that?"

"I don't know. What's there to be friends about?"

"... So what shall we depart as?"

"... Let's depart as just people, neither friend nor foe, just two people"

"---------"

"I'm sorry, I didn't quite catch that"

"---------"

"As it should, as it should"
