THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 314

Light Beam

I shut the door behind me
and sat in the mildew-smelling dankness
of the storage building.
Something crawled over my hand,
but I didn’t bother to shake it off.
I fixed my eyes on a slender beam of light
coming through a crack in the wall.
This all seems so pointless.
There’s nothing here.
They’re messing with me.
All of them.
Gary and Lindsey and Maddy and Amanda…
even… him.

I watched dust dance in the light beam
until I heard the bell’s distant B-flat tone
signaling the end of lunch.
There’s nothing here.
I have no answers.
I give up.

I left.
