Recap: I had taken Bubbles back to the woods where I found her, hoping I would find out what had happened to her…
…There standing at the top of the bank in his bright orange, a hunter holding a very large rifle…”Kinda old to be playin with dolls, ain’t we?”
Stumbling for words I answered, “Oh well, no…and it’s a movie.”
“Hell yeah,” he said, “you homeless crazies; even invading our good huntin’ areas! They oughta have open season on you bastards!”, as he headed deeper into the woods!
Knowing I wouldn’t get a second chance, I reached up to grab Bubbles and her ride…I found nothing…No Bubbles, no wheeler!!!
Should I yell to her, knowing that hunter is close, or just get y ass back to the truck while I can?
Falling to my knees, tears streaming down my face; what was happening to me? I yelled, but there was no sound…I beat my chest, but I could not feel it!!!
Slowly, as if by some supernatural force, my sense of direction and reason returned…running to the truck we sped back to the farm…Yes, WE…Bubbles was sitting there next to me, her wheeler in the truck bed…But how? I don’t remember!
Sitting there at my bench staring at the metal Christmas tree I had promised myself to finish days ago;;;grabbing my head in disgust…again sobbing uncontrollably…
What’s that? BLOOD…I’m bleeding from a large cut on the back of my head! How…Why? Can’t let Carol find out or will really have a condition…playing with Bubbles and all!!!
How can I stop the bleeding…can’t even see it! Gotta go in the house and look in the mirror…Oh, No!…Can’t have blood in the house!
Walking out of the shop with my hand on my head and blood running down my arm…Wait! What’s that? The big pipe that should be leaning up against the shop wall! Look…blood on it and the ground surrounding it…more blood!
Did I ever leave the shop? When I was carrying Bubbles to the truck, did I hit up against that pipe and make it fall? By the way, why is the wheeler over there and where is Bubbles?
Why is everything moving…man, I feel… to be continued…
Next time…Is it a condition or what????
