“I’ve forgotten the words already,” a voice said in as low a voice as it could muster; that voice was so deep, so distinct. . . So hostile.
“Why do you hate me so much?” She asked.
There was a long pause between words. When she had made up her mind that this was all a dream the owner of the voice answered her question. Finally. “How can you tell?”
“I just know. Don’t ask me how.” There was still the possibility of this being a hallucination. She had read about high frequency sounds and electromagnetic waves affecting the brain. There was that, and much more she reasoned. Ruling out insanity as the cause of all this gave her a small measure of comfort. Small, she reminded herself.
“So, after all these years something remains.” Bitterness broke through that thin layer hostility. Beneath it all was pain. And pride.
“You tricked me, and I died.”
A sharp intake of breath broke the silence. “You didn’t die. You became like me–like a god–immortal.”
She shook her head, attempting to dispel the turmoil within her. It were as if she were drunk. Nothing made sense anymore; She couldn’t think. “Stop!” she snarled. “You never listened! You never cared about anything but yourself!” Her voice, she realized, was different. She could not tell what it was that made it so different. That drunk feeling swept over her once more, and she fainted.
Down into the abyss she fell. Or that’s how it felt.
She fell until there was nothing left of her being.
She had simply stopped.
