    Okay buddy, here’s my entry. Its only 300 words, so I did fall short of the word count.


    I walk away from the door, smiling and relaxed. My breathing is even. My hands don’t shake. I take out a cigarette and pretend to look through my purse for a lighter. I don’t want to meet anyone’s eyes because I’m starting to get tunnel vision and afraid I‘ll be given away when they see my pupils dilating. I’m hearing echoes now and I have to strain to understand when they talk at me. I ask if I can have a beer from the cooler and laugh easily at their awkward and violent jokes. Maybe they’re calming down, but I don’t trust myself to know. I force down the panic and let the instinct take over again.
    Someone different is looking out of my eyes, speaking through my lips, moving my body. Someone I have to trust to see me through – to get me out undamaged. She seems to be in control of the situation, of herself, of me. I want to go away, maybe sleep, until this is over.
    I drink too much beer. Though it calms me, I have to use the bathroom. I’ve been putting it off. I don’t want to leave them alone and I know there’s no exit in back. I walk into the bathroom avoiding the mirror over the sink but there’s one on the back of the door and I accidentally see myself. I look into my own eyes. All the color leaves my face and I feel like I’m choking. My fingertips start to tingle and I’m losing feeling. I’m fighting against vertigo and it’s been too long, and I have to get back before they come to get me, and I have to do it without screaming or running for the door that I can now see has been locked.

    I don’t think I want to know what happened here. Knowing you IRL I’m glad to see you made through ok.

    Like your grade for me, I have to give you a B for failing to make the word minimum. Lets se what CRSE comes up with.

    What are going to write on now?
