An Absence

I fell asleep.
I went crazy
and violent
and then I fell asleep.

At least that is what McKay tells me.

Every time they moved.
I would start murmuring something.
And then I would sleep again.

"Ember. I love you Ember."

Not Duckie's voice.
Someone elses.
Tau's?
Jules?

Too much to think about.

He told me.
That was my last memory.
He told me I was Ember from the past.
He told me he was Jules.

Jules Chenier.
He gave me one last letter.

Then I killed him.
I...
He asked me to kill him.
Why did I kill him?

I feel stronger now.

  2. Strength can do you so little in this dangerous game you are playing. I hope you have a plan or all of your little friends are going to go the way of the Duck.

  3. Are you still alive? I'm sorry you've lost your loved ones. At least you still have West, I hope?
