“They’re out there.”
She was really starting to get on my nerves. I knew they were out there. I’d seen them, I’d been chased by them, legging it down the road screaming in terror as hordes followed me. I didn’t need her to tell me they were out there.
She repeated that fact, the only three words I’d heard her say since this whole thing had started. I resisted the urge to smack her, that really wouldn’t solve any problem, well, it might make me feel slightly better, but no, it really wouldn’t help. Instead I made those funny hmmmm noises, the ones that mean anything and nothing, in the hope that it might soothe her a little.
She continued to repeat those words over and over again, all the time rocking backwards and forwards, reminding me of institutionalised orphans you see on those documentaries.
Then, a sudden silence that was so much worse than the moaning. “Alice?” I began to speak, wondering if she had come to her senses. Her head turned to look at me, her eyes glittered and the numb terror I’d been feeling was replaced by an increasing sense of panic as she opened her mouth and spoke: “We’re in here.”
