I awoke in a dingy, cinder block room, to find a strange, haggard man sitting opposite me on the floor, staring intently in my direction.
My repeated inquiries regarding how either of us came to be there went without response; he simply continued to stare at me.
We sat across from each other, this strange man and me, the only sound, an occasional buzzing from the fluorescent lights above us.
He never moved or blinked for what seemed an interminable length of time.
Then, the doorknob began to turn and a broad, knowing smile spread across my quiet companion's face.
