He stood still. Holding the remote in one hand & cigarette in the other. His thumb was firmly pressing the ‘+’ button, changing the channels every 2 seconds. The cigarette hadn’t been lit. He stood still, without realizing where he was.
Seconds turned in minutes and minutes into hours. He stood there flipping the channels, ignoring the barks of his beloved dog. Light breeze was now causing him to shiver underneath the wet clothes. He smiled and fell on his knees. Water was dripping from his hair and tears from his eyes.
Slowly, he crawled towards the wall & screamed, scaring away the dog. His face was now soaked in his own tears and blood. His hand was cut and bleeding profusely. He looked around for a familiar face. There was none. He was alone.
Crying & shivering, he curled up and slept on the floor. With every breath, he was hoping that this nightmare would end with the morning sun.
