Arterial Spray

He’d been bored, that’s all. Bored, confused, stupid.

He’d gotten bored and antsy and asked, "What’s there for a guy to do for fun around here?" and the others had laughed and said, "A guy like you?" and told him.

He returns three hours past the deadline, hair plastered to his skull with blood. Blood is soaked in his clothes and caked in every crevice of his skin, and he has vomited so much, blood is the only thing left in his stomach too.

It’s not enough.

He should listen to his flashing, splintered memories and run. But more importantly, he should’ve listened to them before. It’s too late now.

He hopes this wipe is the one that finally takes.
