It had no name. Just the sounds it made.

It had no voice, just the world around it to play in.

It was made up of moods and chaotic thoughts, random bursts of activity and long periods of silence. It moved when he moved. It followed him from house to house and job to job. The poor man thought it was the house or the job or the office. He didn’t realize it was him.

It liked the man. He was moody and pretty and easily frightened. He slept less and less and they spent more and more time together though it didn’t think the man knew about it. The man didn’t know what it was. He didn’t know what was happening. But it enjoyed the man.

The man was probably starting to think he was insane. It loved to play and part of the play was mind games. It played with the man’s little marionette, which the man didn’t like very much. He wasn’t a big sharer. It opened all his drawers and shook out all his clothes, threw his shoes down the stairs and changed the numbers on the clock. It usually did this when the man was having people over. Eventually the man stopped having people over.
