five.

Posted in Uncategorized by jon reine on October 23, 2009

A man’s been losing five minutes of time for every five that pass.  8:53-8:58… 9:03-9:08… 9:13-9:18.  There are no nosebleeds, headaches or warnings.  It’s just a glitch – like a skip on a compact disc.  Only an hour had passed before he first began to recognize the pattern.  That was three weeks ago.  Today, in his tired, nervous state, he’s feeling reckless.  He still can’t figure out if his consciousness is just shutting off or if his physical body is actually time-traveling.  He checks his watch, takes one long drag on a cigarette, throws it the ground and steps in front of an oncoming bus.
