Details about You and Me at the End of the World
You and Me at the End of the World ePub PDF free download – It’s quiet. The kind of quiet that reminds me of long summer breaks and lazy mosquitos, of my grandma’s house in the backwoods of East Texas. The highways should be droning like the white noise on a vintage vinyl record player—always there, but you only hear it between songs. Right now, I don’t hear a thing. No cars. No people. Only silence, empty and hot. I keep my mom’s car keys in my hand, squeezing as if the pointe shoe charm on her key chain will transfer some of her famous ballerina stoicism into me. If I turn back now, all that’s waiting is my echoing, empty house and a routine that’s already starting to feel stale.
Maybe having something to read will turn the volume down on the thoughts I haven’t been able to silence. I need to get out of the car. I don’t know what I’m waiting for—maybe I’m clinging to a shred of hope that something normal might still happen. Maybe the front door of the house across the street will swing open, a woman in sunglasses will trot down the steps, keys jangling, and get in her car and zoom off. It doesn’t happen, of course. It’s been five days, and I haven’t seen another person. Nobody’s out there, and sitting here frozen will just give my imagination a chance to rear its ugly head.
