Drabble: Confrontation


“Hello, hero.”

I look around my dark apartment. “Who’s there?”

“I think you know.”

“Bill.” I fumble around for the light switch, but it’s dead.

“That’s right, hero.”

“I’m not a hero.”

“Oh, quit being so humble. I know you love it, all that attention.”

“Look, I know I can’t imagine how it feels for you, what happened to Tina. I’m not proud of what happened. But you have to let go.”

“Let go? I don’t think so. Maybe I should help you understand how it feels, instead.”

“Bill, it doesn’t have to be this way.”

“I think it does.”
