Wiki left the food untouched and began walking to her room. She was sinking in her own thoughts, searching deeper and deeper to find any differences in her memory. Her pace quickened as she dug deeper. She broke into a run, pushing people out of the way as she sprinted down the Quarter’s corridor. ‘Nobody notices!’ She shrieked in her head. She ran harder and suddenly she stopped.
She hit a wall. In her head. There was this giant black wall. She started to shiver and shake as she tried to find a break in it. Wiki stumbled into her room & closed the door behind her.
Wiki’s mind was spinning. She sank to the floor with her back to the wall. She sat there without thinking anything. She didn’t know how long she sat there, but she was still sitting there when the bedtime alarm sounded over the intercom and when the lights went out. She didn’t move when her door opened and when a shadow sat on her bed across from her. The shadow simply sat and waited. Seeming to wait for some confirmation that Wiki was alive.
