I keep sending her messages although she hasn't replied in weeks.
I'm going to take a nap now. Just wanted to let you know in case you call.
Each message marked as Read, never a reply. Does someone else have her phone? If they do, why wouldn't they just ignore the messages? Every day I go out and look for her for three hours. Three hours on the dot, then I come home. I stagger the times, sometimes in the morning, others in the afternoon, late at night, dusk. At least I think I am. Who can tell anymore? It doesn't seem to matter, but I try to keep it diversified. It was six hours at first, then five. It dwindles a bit each week. Consciously? I don't know. It's not like I have much to do. I showed up at work after a week off - grieving leave, they called it - to find the entire garage empty. The machines haven't been used in a week, all lights off except for the ones that ran constantly for security. I tried calling my boss and coworkers but no one answered. I went to their homes and none of them had been there. I mean, ever. The places had been empty for what looked like years.
