a talk…

how many times did you call her…

call her…

yes…today…how many times…

I don’t know…several

several…

yes…several…I called several times…

why…

what do you mean why…

why did you keep calling her…

wanted to talk to her…to hear her voice…

so you called several times…

yes…

did she ever answer…

no…she never answered…

just a ringing of a phone…that’s all you heard…just this ringing each time you called her…

yes…

with no answer…

well…it went to her voicemail…

what did her voicemail say…

what…

the voice on the answering machine…was it her’s…

yes…

and what did she say…

she said…you’ve reached 312-883-8881…I can’t talk at this time… but, if you’ll leave a message… I’ll get back to you…

and did you…

did I what…

leave a message…

no…I did not…

so…you called several times…heard her voice…and never left a message…is that right…

it is…it is right…

why…why didn’t you leave a message…

I don’t know why…

well there must be a reason…right…

maybe I was scared…

scared…to leave a message…what kind of a guy’s scared to leave a message…

I don’t know…

you don’t know…

no…

remember in high school…you’d call girls and hang up the phone ’cause you were scared…but you wanted to hear that voice on the other end…her voice…and you’d call time and time again…’cause that’s what boys do…right…

I don’t know what you’re talking ’bout…

yes…you had to talk to her…

yes…

and now no-one can talk to her…’cause we can’t find her…can’t find her…she’s gone…do you know where she went to…

no…

no idea…

no…

I have an idea…I think you have an idea as well…tell me where she’s at…

I don’t know where she’s at…

you don’t know…

no…

no idea…

that’s what I said…I have no idea where she’s at…

she’s gonna be found…you know that…right…we’re gonna find her…could be anywhere…a garage…a river…back in some woods…left in a car…buried in a backyard…

what makes you think she’s dead…she coulda just left town…lots of people do that you know…

leave town…

yes…they just leave…

have people left you…

yes…

people have left you behind…

yes…

why do you think that is…

don’t know…just have…

who…

my mom…she left me when I was younger…

where’d she go…

don’t know…she just left…left me behind to live with foster parents…bounced from one house to another…

angry ’bout that…

no…

sure…

things happen…people leave people behind…that’s been my experience…
