The clock tics, “tic, tock, tic tock” The faucet drips, “Drip drop, drip, drop” The fan whirs and the AC moans.
I lay in bed, it was 3:03 am and i couldn’t sleep. too much noise, even in my head. I tossed, i turned.
Everything was too loud, i covered my ears with my hands.
“Big blue bus!!” I said 23 times, trying to stop the noises.
I uncovered my ears. It didnt work, the noises got louder and louder.
“BIG BLUE BUS!” I shouted over the noise.
I sat up grabbed my trusty nail scissors and started to slice my belly. As the blood came to surface, the sounds and noises started to calm down!
I threw the scissors across the room, i felt terrible. i had promised myself i would never cut again!!
Now i was bleeding.
I started to cry. i felt confused!
So i grabbed my mug and ran my fingers over the textures. In no time i felt gooder!
I fell asleep and everything was okay.
