    I tried to back up some more, but my back hit the wall. I held my hands up and said in a shaking voice, “Please, I’m not who you think I am.”

    “I don’t understand, it was here a minute ago.” I let the smile fall from my face as I turn back toward the screen, panic starting to set in as I search the files.

    I kept looking over my shoulder, sure that someone would find me at any second. My mind was almost blank with terror. I watched the little bar at the bottom of the screen. 36%…37%.

    Waiting, waiting, waiting. My leg jiggled up and down hurriedly. I kept glancing around, turning my head around.

    When I first woke up, I thought I was blind. All I could see was white, a huge haze. After some minutes, things began to clarify themselves.

    We sat staring at each other. She wouldn’t meet my eyes, her gaze flicking around the room.

    The water moved listlessly, the leaves floating on top of the stream moved in almost unnoticeable increments. The sun was mercilessly hot, and humidity sat thick in the air.

    She jumped off the horse easily, hitting the ground with hardly a sound. I watched jealously before sliding off my own horse in an undignified manner, narrowly avoiding landing on the ground ass first.

    Fuck Donald Trump.

    I can’t get air into my lungs. Every time I suck in a choking, rattling breath I feel the air rushing down, but I can’t feel the rush of oxygen.

    My eyes scanned the rows frantically. Where was it? I jumped when I heard a small noise from the next room. I had to find that book before anyone knew it was here.

    In my mind, she’s always smiling. She never smiled that much in real life, but when she did, it had a way of printing itself into my memory. I told her that I loved her smile a hundred times. I wish I could have told her a hundred more.

    I kept walking, pulling my collar up even further against the cold. I could hear footsteps behind me, at least three pairs. I sped up.

    I pulled the hat down even lower over my eyes. It was already too big and drooped comically over my ears, but I would rather have any passers-by to think I was merely a slouch, rather than see what I really was.

    White walls, white ceiling, white tile floors. The worst part is that it’s all off-white, not the gleaming shine of a sci-fi space ship, but a tired and dirty old building

    I sat down at the edge of the group, trying to quietly shift myself among them. The woman next to me glanced in my direction, but I did not hold her attention for more than a second before she was back to the conversation at hand.

    “I know what I’m doing.” He grunted, pushing down harder on my abdomen. I didn’t have to look to know that blood was still seeping out. “Really?” I asked. “Because it feels like you don’t.”

    The bars rattled as he shook them, screaming. His long dirty hair covered his eyes, but I knew that I would see madness if I looked into them.

    Steam was rising from the shirt when I pulled the iron off. The patch of shirt it had been sitting on was burned through. I pulled the plug on the old thing and continued my search of the house.

    Running, panting for breath, I chased. The man in the black jacket was twenty, fifteen, ten steps ahead of me. I could see the sweat on the back of his neck. I closed in.
