Lost My Voice

Lost My Voice
Original short by: Jeremy Alva
Rated: G | Words: 195
Comm: all_unwritten, Prompt: 'Lost my voice'.

----------

I smell the earth before I feel it. Senses come rushing back. My hand finds consciousness before the rest of me, and does its best to push me off the ground.

I'm standing, suddenly, but I don't remember how I got there. I'm running. Something in my chest is trying to break its way out. Rap-rap rap-rap, against my insides.

It's dark now. True dark. The sort of dark that only a dense wood can afford. Like the dreams I had in utero. My feet ache, but it's been so long that I can no longer remember when they didn't. A twig breaks sharply behind me, and I know I've slowed too much. I escape.

I see a man flying down the road, two cones of light leading the path before him. Maybe he can save me from this noise behind me. I run into the road, try to wave him down. He sees me too late.

I try to scream. Lost my voice.

I smell the earth before I feel it. Senses come rushing back. My hand finds consciousness before the rest of me, and does its best to push me off the ground.
