Last night I fell asleep feeling uneasy. And today, I still feel uneasy.
I have been afflicted by a general malaise. A friend told me to ‘snap out of it.’
Snap out of it Violet, he said. You’re so much more fun when you’re alive.
Fuck off, I replied from the couch, giving him the death stare. When he carried on, I threw my book at him.
I have brilliant aim. The best aim of all the sex bloggers out there. I hit him boom bang kapow right in the middle of his forehead.
Blood. Bruising. Concussion.
Violet, how could you…
I got off the couch, retrieved my book, wiped off the blood and lay down again.
What page was I on?
Ah, chapter three.
I am afflicted by malaise.
