4. The Video

It was probably after midnight when my eyes fluttered open. I looked up at the ceiling and realization struck me. I was in my bedroom. My left arm was stinging.

   I quickly got up and studied it. It was bleeding and there was a long raw cut across it. I hurried to Mom’s room, ignoring my throbbing hand, quietly picked up the camera and then returned nimbly to my bedroom.

   The video started. I turned on the fast forward mode and watched. Mom went to bed half and hour after I did. She lay in bed sobbing for a long time wiping her eyes from time to time. Finally she drifted off to sleep. After what must have been hours, I stirred.

   I rose. I was acting strangely, walking in a strange way. I came closer to the camera and stopped at the round table. I noticed that my eyes were wide and I did not blink. I picked up the paper cutter from the table. My left hand rose and I slashed the paper cutter across my bare arm. I did not wince of gasp. Instead I began to laugh. The laughter pricked my memory and I gasped as I realized where I had heard it before-in my nightmares. Mom did not stir one bit, as though she was in a trance. Then in the video I began to weep. It did not sound anything like me and resembled the sobs of a little girl. Unexpectedly, it stopped and was replaced by laughter once again and slowly I walked out of my mother’s room.
