The Voice in My Head (9/100)

Did you think I wouldn’t notice?

The voice came from within, but I looked around in confusion, wondering if others on the bus had heard.

I told you not to tell. Now they’ll be coming for you.

I had to. They saw the marks you made on my skin. They asked too many questions…I broke…I’m sorry…

They’ll lock you up. Force you to take the pills.

I know.

Tears pooled…escaping slowly.

Why couldn’t I do the same?

I’ll never leave you.

I know.

It was my greatest fear.

What will you tell them?

The truth.

That I’m afraid of myself.
