The Interception of Time
Time = 3:00 A.M. ;Thursday
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Me-of-the-past:
"It's the middle of the night but I still feel so hyper.
Guess that's what happens when you sleep in the afternoon.
But it's worth it."

Me-of-the-past:
"Hi there! Who are you?
And why are you up at this time? You nocturnal like me?"


Shade-of-the-Tragedy:
". . . ."


Me-of-the-past:
"...haha.. uhhh, Do you understand me?"


Shade-of-the-Tragedy:
" . . .Prepare Yourself"


Me-of-the-past:
"Um, prepare myself for what?
Finals aren't until another few weeks, if that's what you mean..."


Shade-of-the-Tragedy:
"Some days forward, At this hour,
You will lose that which you hold most dear"


_______________________________________________________________________________

*Exeunt Shade-of-the-Tragedy*

_______________________________________________________________________________

Me-of-the-past:
"That which I hold dear? What is tha--? Wait.
Where'd you go? Hey! What'd you mean by that?
.....Weirdo. As if that'd happen...
Yeah there's no way that'd happen...right?"

Time = 3:00 A.M. ;Wednesday

Me-of-the-past:
"...That guy from earlier. Turns out he was right. I lost it.

*Enter Shade-of-the-Tragedy

Me-of-the-past:
"Hey! It's you! ...What you told me,
It came true."


Shade-of-the-Tragedy:
"It is as I said,
At this hour,
You have lost that which you hold most dear..."


Me-of-the-past:
"...Wait. How'd you even know that was going to happen? Who are you?"


Shade-of-the-Tragedy:
"That's simple. I'm You.
That is, I'm the you a second from now."


Me-of-the-past:
"A second from now? That doesn't even make sense.
If you're me a second from now then by now I should already be you?
Who are you, really?"


Shade-of-the-Tragedy:
"I told you. I'm you a second from now."


Me-of-the-past:
"Yeah. And I just said that's nonsense.
Explain to me how that could be possible?"


Me-of-the-future:
"It's simple.
I'm the You from the second that time beings to move again for you.
You see, you may not have noticed, but time has stopped for you.
And it'll stay that way for a while."

"Time is of your own making;
Its clock ticks in your head.
The moment you stop thought
Time too stops dead."
--ANGELUS SILESIUS

"We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial."
