[Afterworld drabble] Home

A place full of warmth, of security. Somewhere he knew he could always go if he needed to withdraw and  think. Or even just a place to relax. No worry of scrutiny from outside eyes. When he was young, he’d always run back home, back to his mother, where nothing could possibly touch him and shh, everything would be alright. 

However, it was strange how quickly the feeling of a word can change in one’s mind, on one’s tongue. It now felt dusty, like the thick layer of gray that had settled over his belongings (a now past life.) Sheets were strewn over the furniture like ghosts of a place that once mattered more than anything. The walls felt weighed down by the plaster, wood, and memories that held them in place. He wanted to feel safe inside this place again, wanted to be able to hole himself up and hide from the world, wanted his old life back, with all the people that were in it. 

But what he wanted, more than anything, was for everything to be alright.

[drabble: afterworld] Outro

It had rained the day he died.

He could only recall it in snippets, mind clouded by a feverish haze. The light tap tap tap of drops of water as they rapped against his window. There were worried and anxious faces that slid in and out of focus; Nanny Aldrina here, Mister Jarvin there. He remembers them trying to say something to him, but the words became lost, drowned out by the shuffle of bedclothes being rearranged and a clattering tea set (his mother’s favorite.) Sounds became more distant— after how much time, he didn’t know. Vision blurred, breathing stalled, and numbness crept into his limbs. Soon, the only noise he could hear was the pounding water outside and a soft wail.

And then, nothing.


[just a quick snippet of what Ries remembers before dying.]
