Adrian & I (Short Story)

August 24, 2009 at 9:21 pm (Short story)

With Adrian we lived in downtown. He really makes me laugh. He’s totally convinced he’s a serial killer. “I’m a soul taker” he says, while he swims from one side to the other side on the little goldfish bowl I bought for him. He has been quiet lately, I’ve tried to pet him, but he keeps jumping acrobatically out of water, trying to bite one of my fingertips (he thinks he’s a piranha). Last Sunday I saw him depressed, so I dissolved a Zoloft pill in his water, and I took another two pills myself. We were watching the whole afternoon through the windowpane, humming songs in a different language. The thing is we get very lonely just the both of us, you know.
