Syra and Ethan sit at an outdoor restaurant eating happily. A waiter lights something on fire which catches Ethan’s attention making him stare with large eyes. Then another waiter lights another thing on fire catching Ethan’s attention again. Syra sips on a beer and laughs.

Ethan is driving up a winding road while Syra is sleeping in the passenger seat. Ollie is in the back swaying with the road. Suddenly theres a wet sound and Ethan proclaims “shit!”. Syra wakes up momentarily out of terror thinking they might have fallen off the road. Instead it turns out Ollie has thrown up behind them.

Darkness. Complete and utter darkness accompanied only by a deep and loud roar. Annie stared into it. She felt it calling to her. Suddenly the roar grew higher in pitch. The sounds of reality began to fade in, as a rainbow of socks flew across the darkness and piled up over it.

The dryer beeped…

Annie unleashed the pile of socks all over the area Brand was working. He chuckled and swept them off to the side and Annie began to pair them. Ones without a partner she piled to one corner. 

"Where do the lost ones go?" Annie asked Brand holding up a pair of mismatched socks.

"You probably accidentally left them in the dryer" Brand replied. "Go and check."

Annie hurried back over to the dryer where a disheveled looking man was staring into the darkness. She hid behind another set of dryers and waited patiently for him to leave.

"They’re not here." The old man said. "They’ve gone to the other side. Who knows if they’ll ever come back." He didn’t even turn around.

Annie began to back off slowly.

"Don’t you ever wonder what its like? On the other side I mean." He continued still staring into the darkness.

"What other side?" Annie asked quietly to herself.

"The place where the lost things go!" The old man turned around crazy wide eyed.

Disheveled and a little dirty the old man seemed off but not… threatening.

"What are you talking about?" Annie asked him.

Annie 6/5/14

Darkness. Complete and utter darkness accompanied only by a deep and loud roar. Annie stared into it. She felt it calling to her. Suddenly the roar grew higher in pitch. The sounds of reality began to fade in, as a rainbow of socks flew across the darkness and piled up over it.

The dryer beeped and Annie heard the locks unlatch on the door. She opened up the dryer and buried her face in the warm clothes. She then put her arms around the pile and pulled them into her basket. She finished and looked back into the dryer, back into the darkness. It was still and quiet. She stuck her head in and listened to the silence. “Hello?” She muttered eyes closed. She listened to how her voice bounced off the dark metal. 

"Annie?"

Surprised she jerked a bit, hitting her head. She winced a bit in pain but stuck her head back in to listen. “Hello?”

"Annie!"

Annie snapped back into reality realizing it was her father calling. She picked up her basket and hurried back to her father Brand in the folding area of the laundromat.
