I appreciate the effort, but I'm getting the feeling the intent of this thread has severely shifted.

Ugh.  Need to change tenses in the first paragraph.  BRB.

Ok, I think this helps.




It all started pleasantly enough.  Yesterday, the shadow grew again.  Strange shapes blackened the sky.  The walls kept changing color.  There’s something outside the window.  Her eyes widened in anticipation.  It was an insular community.  We thought they were dead.  But they were dead, yesterday…  There wasn’t time to scream. 

The sun didn’t rise today.  No one sees color here.  They don’t remember the difference.  It is inside the house.  That night, I wasn’t alone.  A voice said, “You die”. There shouldn’t be visitors tonight.  Didn’t I lock this door?

I spoke into the silence.  “I’m not usually like this.  I can’t feel my legs.” 

She said, “I got this.”  She had too many teeth.  Time slowed to a stop.  “This won’t hurt a bit.”  The anesthesia didn’t quite work.  The scab came off again.  It had been an eye.  Below, rows of sharp teeth.  I think those are teeth.  “It’s curable, for a price.”

My voice seemed far away.  “I can’t find the baby.  I have these horrible urges.” 

“They know, they just don’t care.”  Her eyes followed the wound.  “This isn’t my real face.” 

But there was no face…

I think I can make some improvements to the dialogue section.

For a second there, I thought you were referencing this thread.

Then again....


Oh, and:

"...But there was no face..."

There's an entire FaceBook group for it.

Portland's city slogan is "The City That Works".

Yesterday, it took my bus 40 minutes to go 10 blocks because nobody is sure why.

But that was OK, because when I finally got downtown the streetcar wasn't running because the power was out at the south waterfront research center where my class is held.

Because of an unnamed "incident"

which turned out to be a construction crane falling over.

Portland: The City That Works!

It really depends on what the end goal is. Consider for a moment that this is EXACTLY how the city should "work". It produces an entirely new train of thinkng.

Zenpatista, you know how they say "reversed stupidity is not intelligence"?  Well, in the case of jonb, it's not true.  Do exactly what he is not doing, and you should be OK.
