Cacaphony... Or Not
Nothing made sense anymore. She was mine, but only in my mind. I’d never told her of my affections. All the people I loved, my family, my friends, everyone who mattered to me, came flooding back to my mind.
They were gone. Forever.
I couldn’t take it. I thought I’d go insane.
I lay there, my eyes closed, trying not to sob.
Then she disappeared.
A small, multi-tone cacaphony of beeping caught my ear.
Only it didn’t wasn’t a cacaphony for long.
Was… was that “Hey Jude”?
It… it couldn’t be.
My restraints were released. I rubbed my wrists, slowly sitting up. I tried to figure out the beeping, mouthing the words to “Hey Jude.” It matched perfectly.
I stood up and blindly followed the sound until I hit a long control board that blinked faintly. It captivated me; the light, the sound, the color.
It all made sense in my mind. It was all technological, but it was art and music to me.
I looked up. The android was next to me again, peering at me.
“How does this work?” I asked him curiously.
