there were four couples in
the two bedded hotel room. one couple was sitting on each bed, one
couple was sitting on the floor between the dresser's, & the fourth
man paced holding a gun as the girl leaned against the wall smoking a cigarette.
the tv seemed a little loud & incomprehens-ible like it was under the
influence of some strange drug. the girl sitting next to me on the
bed closer to the tv had yellow hair that was matted like she'd put in
hairspray & gone to bed. the guy on the floor tried to be heroic;
he pulled out a knife & slit the man's gun hand between the middle
& ring fingers & stabbed him twice in the back when he bent over
clutching his hand. then the gunman shot him twice & he fell
next to his girlfriend who was already crying. the guy with the gun
looks around as if to intimidate everybody & i start laughing uncontrollably.
so the guy comes up to me & starts hitting me in the face a lot &
a lot of blood starts coming out & a choking cough made the laughter
stop. then he shot me twice in the stomach & there was a pool
of blood in my shirt that i kept trying to lift away, but i can't be cause
it's a liquid & slips through my fingers. then the girl next
to me asks, "do you know what time it is?" "no." "oh, i was
just wondering because i wanted to know if the news was on. i wanted
to know about the weather." "well, don't we have cable? it's always
on the weather channel," but we kept watching some bad high budget action
movie with car crashes & i kept bleeding.
