I woke up and immediately felt dizzy.
Ignoring it, I was just about to get up when I saw you. There you were, intently reading a book.
Then my spasms began. I couldn’t breathe. You then turned to me. Your shining black eyes, your cheeks, your shoulders, and…you smiled.
But you didn’t get up.
I kept thinking, “Why won’t you talk to me?” That very moment, or the next one, I don’t remember exactly, I died.
That’s how you got rid of me.
