Haunted

I can't believe I'm back. Here in this room. The roof of this room led to my brother calling me Pointy. And the name stuck. Today I toss and turn. Trying to find a comfortable position on my #childhood bed. And as always, failing. I think of all the nights I've spent here, trying to ignore the screaming and fights. Every day that I can remember in school is a minor victory against the powers of #sleep. Till the day the screaming was for me. For my swaying body, above the ground, as close to the pointed ceiling as I could manage. Now, I can't believe I'm here. I can't believe they've put me here. I can't believe I'm still awake. #shortstory #instastory #fiction #anxiety #depression photo credit @suchita_parikh_mundul

Attention

"And then I said that I couldn't possibly finish by Friday…are you listening to me Akash?" "What? Yes of course. So what happened then?" "…I don't think you even know what I'm talking about. And this isn't even the first time. What's going on?" "Oh God don't turn this into a thing. I was listening. You told your boss you couldn't possibly finish by Friday." "Not my boss. I told my mother that." "What? How is that even logical…stop looking at me like that. Stop it! I was listening." "Cheque please. Let's just leave." "What?? We have tickets to a movie." "I'm not in the mood. You want to go try and sell them?" "No! Will you stop making a big deal of nothing? I. Was. Listening." "That tree outside was listening more than you were. Goodbye Akash." "Even a tree wouldn't listen to you! Your stories are that boring! God." #shortstory #instastory #fiction #breakup #fight #listen #tree #listeningtree
