i woke up in the sheets of a bed again, but this time it was to cold to handle. i shivered, pulled the blankets off, and started feeling my way around the room. suddenly, i felt bare skin and quickly pulled back. i heard a sigh.
i'm sorry, i thought, this time knowing he'd hear my thoughts.
"thats alright. i was just sleeping." said gravel voice.
i began thinking of his name once again and almost asked before he said something.
"why do you think i need a name so badly?
because everyone must have something to be called as. what will i do when i need you? what should i call? i'm completely helpless, being blind and all!
he sighed and pulled himself up. "what do you want to call me?"
i had to think for a while don't you have a name?
"no. here, we just feel the presents of other people and know when they want you. its a mind connection. having a name is for the light."
well, i can't do that mind stuff. can i call you something anyway?
he sighed his gravel sigh again. "if you must"
i thought of a few names but didn't seem to find a fitting one.
"i like that one." he said.
thats not a name, Gravel Voice.
"what is gravel any who?"
stuff to pave roads. i thought of what it would look like.
"yes i seem to get it." he mumbled something "i'd like the name Fitting" he said proudly.
i laughed a bit. thats not a name! just think of having a silly name like that!
"well, i seem to think its a good name! what kind of a name is Autumn, hmmm?"
i sighed, how about a name thats like Fitting? you know, like Fred or fill or frank or Fitch?
"i like Fitch"
i suddenly felt him nod.
okay, Fitch, what do you DO here anyway?
for some reason, he gasped and i could feel him jump off the bed and rush somewhere.
"Stay right there! do you understand?"
i nodded as i felt his presents leave.
and that is where i waited.
