Not 2006

by Teo

In the world where Teo tries to and actually saves Alexander… he has to break a mirror to find it, first. There's no rabbit hole, no reality flip, only dumb blond panic. Slippery glint of bone, serous-bunched skin, arterial blood sliming insurance card and staining loose bills black. One cab driver pulls him in anyway. "Ah've seed worse, son. Keep pressure," but the gauze—

—it's holding itself. Teo just thinks: already hallucinating.

The radio begins fiercely about PARIAH, but the driver jabs it off. "Family?"

Teo chokes mid-prayer.

Empathy looks at him from the rearview. "I'll stay with you."
