Obsession: Exposing

“Tomorrow’s Saturday.” Jueli reminds me. Jueli and I have been talking a lot lately.

“Ugh, I know, I know.”

“So what do you think he’s up to?”

“He took extreme measures to talk to me.”

“He’s a bit unusual,”

“Just a bit, J. He’s like…”


“Not the word I was looking for, but yeah.”

“Do you know a lot about Elsewhere?”

“It’s not like I researched the place. Why?”

“Haven’t you noticed any… strange goings on around here?”

“Jared. He’s what’s strange.”

“Has it ever happened before?”

“No, just when I came here,”

“Elsewhere isn’t your regular town, Gabe.” Jueli warns,

“Or so I’ve noticed, J.”

“No, I mean it isn’t a really good place to get too involved in.”


“I mean, people here, they get attached easily. Very easily.”

“Jared for example?”

“He is exactly my point. He’s like… never mind.”

“He’s like what?”

“Too attached.”

“I think beyond, but sure.”

“So you know what I’m talking about?”

“No, not exactly. What?”

“Uh, Jared’s… obsession?”
