Scenes

In the style of a video game dialogue, with scrolling text next to a pixelated face image)

( laced with frilly vitiated ideas)

Stephanos: I thought I had lost you, but here you came back!

You: [nothing, because you are in the state of personhood equivalent to that of a fetus]

(The fantasy, grounded in expectation)

Stephanos: I thought I had lost you, friend!

You: answer back, but the rest of the dialogue, which must continue, wherever in words or physical action, is curtailed)

(The reality)

Stephanos: Hi, friend!

You: smile sheepishly

(The actual reality as of this day)

-Stephanos if not here, as you missed the day of training on the trampoline and did not return, your heart hardened in fear.
