Don’t Let Go


This is all I can do for her now. I don’t know if she’s still with me at times. Her eyes look so empty. I know she can hear me.

“Just leave her alone,” Makoto told me last night. I can’t do that. She made me promise not to. More like she applied that’s what she wanted. Either way, I am staying with her.

I do get hints of life. Baby Doll is still there. She doesn’t speak. She doesn’t move. But Baby Doll does try to talk to me. I can see it in her eyes. I just don’t know what she is trying to say. Maybe I could try and soul travel to find her…

Hm? I thought I saw her lips moving. I leaned in for a listen.

“What did you say?” I asked. Her voice was too soft as she spoke. I couldn’t make out what she was saying. Suddenly, she grabbed onto my wrist. I jumped as I tried to pull away.

“What’s the matter, Baby Doll?” I asked. “Hey! Hey!” Her grip grew tighter and tighter around my wrist. I tried to pull away but she wouldn’t let up. My wrist started to go numb. The creepiest part was there was nothing in her eyes. She didn’t seem to be breathing either.

“Baby Doll? Baby Doll?” I asked, shaking her shoulder. She finally let go of me and went limp. I sat back, panting. When I looked up, Baby Doll was leaned up against the wall with nothing in her eyes.

“What was that?” I asked. “What were you trying to tell me?” She didn’t answer me. She didn’t even move her lips. I will have to try and soul travel just to see what’s going on with her. The howling wind and pounding rain outside helped cool down the situation. I looked out the window and shook my head.

They said it’s supposed to clear up today. But I have my doubts…
