a Maniac (Fragment #026)

I pressed a latch and closed my eyes. My heartbeat started to slow down. I wasn’t late… which meant that I could continue with my education… and my language acquisition. Damn! Chilperic was especially tiresome today. Generally, he doesn’t grumble much… but today he was a true bore! He tried finding out where I spend my evenings.

“Er versucht zu dahinterkommen!” [German: He tries to unearth!]

I smiled at this thought. Anyway – I’m lucky! To get to have free practice with a native speaker… 24/7… How many people can boast that? I can! My teacher is watching TV I hope the sound will not muffle his comments.

“Stumpfsinn! Wer so spielt?!” [German: Hebetude! Who plays like that?!]

It’s a pity that I can’t write now… though I can hear the pronunciation perfectly.

“Sie schreiben Grabinschrift in diesem Augenblick!” [German: They write an epitaph in this moment!]

No… it was not for nothing that I came to him the first night. Of course, he does have some problems with social adaptation and interpersonal relationships… but now I’m sure I will be able to pass my exam.

I adjusted my handcuffs… they are broken and slip down my wrists constantly… I spoiled my restraints the first evening. Wow! Our project is ‘Super force for Super dweebs’… Didn’t I say that yet? If you’ll remind me to explain I’ll narrate… later… Oh, Henry I miss you!

I leaned against the radiator and continued to sweat over SWOT analysis.

“Ich murre – Du murrst – Er murrt” [German: I grumble – You grumble – He grumbles]

“Stop mumbling! Stop your fucking Geschwatz!” [German: Verbiage] What do you do?

I bit my tongue. Breaking News started. My teacher was again the head-liner. I’ve heard this for the hundredth time now… A maniac… kidnaps girls… has German accent… be careful… call the police… Blah-blah-blah… I yawned.

While I was falling asleep near the radiator, I was imagining a surprised look on my sweet Chilperic… When he hears my German, he’ll be stupefied… I adore his stupid face in such moments! (to be continued)

    • Ry, your suggestions are my most expensive treasures as a writer! I sincerely think that it’s a piece of luck to have such an opportunity to work with you!

      I’m so sorry, last week I was a bit scattered…
      Real life makes own correctives for our plans 🙂
      I hope, you don’t feel that I bypass you… It’s just a lack of time, not a lack of my friendly feelings to you 🙂

    • Oh, I know, we are all busy with our own lives at times, and I know this time of year can be hard for a lot of people, so I have not thought anything was out of the ordinary and I haven’t been taking anything personal!

      We have other people we talk to as well that we give some of our time to, and probably stuff going on in both our lives that can be distracting of our time, so I hope you haven’t thought anything was amiss on my side either 🙂

    • Thank you, Ry!

      Yes, I know, the thread of life makes loops.
      Gyres, parabolic curves and nooses… The thread can make more close or give a distance… the thread can stretch… but I don’t want if this thread will tear.
      I want to keep our thread, our connection.

    • Tony, you can’t imagine how your comments are important for me ❤
      I'll write you a bit later… Now I just want to say 'THANK YOU!'
      You made my day. Because of such people like you I realize that I don't spend my time in vain…
