Sometimes I can’t stand being alone, but the feeling of being surrounded by people is simply impossible to deal. Yeah, I know, we all are really confused by our own choices… by our own minds. And that’s the worse, when you find yourself alone in your room surrounded by the ghosts you have created to deal with solitude. They end up being your only company, so even when you try to avoid it, you bring them to join your room.
One day, I think one of them came to life as I was writing my new book. A sweet voice came to me as if it was really close to my left ear:
“Hey dear. I can smell it…”
I was really tired, so tired I didn’t jump or react to this creepy s**t. Maybe I was hallucinating, I haven’t slept in days… But that dreamy voice was still there:
“Dear, I can smell you…”
“Who are you?”
“I can’t stand it anymore…”
“What the hell are you talking about?”
I left my desk and started to look around as a lunatic but I saw nothing. “Yeah, I really need company… And I really need to sleep” I thought to myself.
But then I felt it, as I walked through my bedroom. I felt a strange smell… It came from the bathroom. As I got closer to it, I almost puked.
Then I saw that thing… Oh god I couldn’t believe…
I didn’t flush all day long.
