A brief see-ya-later…

The problem with running away is that you always have to take yourself.

Word of the day: Drapetomania – intense desire to run away from home

So at about 9am this morning the battle started. Jinjing picked an argument with Neville about the shower (something to do with his shaving foam leaving a rust stain) and then escalated it into an accusation that he’s been coming into our rooms.

‘Just mine and inkbiotic’s of course!’ she said with super sarcasm. ‘You don’t bother with Hamoudi’s, do you?’

I listened through my door while Neville  insisted that no, he’s never done that, he wouldn’t do that, that would be terrible. I felt pretty sorry for him. Then she started banging on my door, demanding that I tell Neville he was a creep. I needed to wait a bit so it wasn’t obvious I had my ear against the door, then I went out and tried to remain as vague as I could. Neville looked scared, Jinjing looked terrifying. I probably looked bewildered, but I mostly do anyway.

So that’s it. I need to get out, just for a few days. This flat has become too intense and I don’t understand what’s going on. I’ve packed a bag and I’m running away. I’m taking the first bus out of Victoria. Wherever I end up, I’ll stay until my mind stills. Just thinking about it makes me feel free, I’m going on an adventure!

I’ll post if I can. I think my phone does stuff like that. Although it might do it badly, so if I ignore comments please don’t take it personally.

  1. Oh man. Take care!

    Nice of Jingjin to drag you into the fight she picked. Awkward! Definitely unfair. Probably should have called a flat meeting to try and calmly hash it out.

    I actually had an acquaintance make an accusation against me once based on circumstantial evidence. It was quite maddening when my denial and explanation was brushed aside. Neville very well could be guilty, but maybe not. Anyway, battle lines are drawn.

    1. Thank you! Being wrongly accused is horrible, I’m sorry that happened to you. I’d rather stay quiet than accuse someone without being sure.
      I’m on the motorway watching the trees whizz past now 😀
