I did, which isn’t really a surprise. Must’ve chugged down at least an entire bottle of wine considering this terrible headache I woke up with…
Really? Jason? You’ve never heard of him? Yeah, his parties are always great.
Really. Nope, is he that popular? I honestly haven’t been to a party since I graduated high school two years ago, but if this one’s going to be as great as you say, I don’t think I can miss it.
I can’t say. I’ve seen some pretty weird things. Well, seen, dreamt or remembered… I can’t keep it all straight. But if any of that’s true, there might be a reason to believe that someone in town doesn’t want anyone to leave.
What kind of things? Might? I’m not following, why would anyone want to trap us here? That sounds a little…I mean, well, it sounds a lot like something out of a book.
I’m guessing at Jase’s house. He throws some of the best.
Jase…? Never heard of him. The best? Really?
A party? Where?
Yeah, I had a few broken ribs and a totaled car, but otherwise I was okay. I don’t recommend trying to get past the sign. It’s not just me that it’s happened to, apparently.
What are you saying? Isn’t an accident simply an accident? Do you really think…someone couldn’t…no way…
I know what you mean. Being tied to the town, that is. I’ve tried to leave before… woke up the next day in the hospital. Not how I wanted to spend that weekend, let me tell you. So escape is apparently out of the question, among other things.
You ended up in the hospital? I’ve never gotten that past the town line. I almost did once but I turned my dad’s truck around before I could get past the sign.
I’m not! Sure, I’m no art appraiser, but you’d have to be bloody blind to think that’s bad. Though, would the blind form an opinion on something they can’t see? I don’t see why they wouldn’t, because there are people who’ve got perfect vision and still form opinions on things they’ve never laid eyes on, but -shrugs- I don’t think I’d adapt well to life on a boat long enough to go around the world, but to each their own. I’m serious. If it’s something you want, go for it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.
Oh gosh, thank you! -thinks about his question for a second- I think they would, but maybe they’d do it in a different way than we do. I’m not sure -shrugs- I could. I don’t get seasick at all, quite the opposite actually, if that makes any sense. Yeah but-but-erm, it’s sort of-…it’s a wee bit complicated. Even if I didn’t let anyone tell me I can’t, I’m still sort of tied to this town. It’s uh, it’s hard to explain…
