Round 2 Written Part 2 PreviewHe didn't need to see the darkness to know the lights were out. He didn't need to feel the soft fabric to know what he wore. He didn't need to feel the rapidly beating heart against his back or the warm arms around his chest to know who was there. The walls would be the same; the sounds would be the same. The smell would be the same. Everything would be the same.
The words whispered in his ear confirmed it. The nightmare had returned. He would open his eyes and be in the same room, on the same bed, with that same body laying there, the stains soaking the bed.
