t's lonely having no friends.
Only characters in stories would keep me company.
But when the story ends, I could only rely on them in dreams.
I finished yet another book, sadly placing it on the shelf, leaving friendly characters vanish from existence... except in my mind.
Then, I heard them.
"You aren't going to abandon us, are you?"
I lay in bed, terrified of their voices.
"Friends till the end, right?"
I bit my lip.
"Unless, you don't want to be friends?"
"No!" I peeped, "I do!"
Was it madness? Or was I with the only people that cared?
