Falling V: Reality

They sat facing each other now, however, on opposite sides of the bed. The day was bright, and he couldn't help but stare into her face for long periods as she explained everything that he had seen.

As you know and have seen in most of your movies, there are alternate realities to the one we're in now. I come from Nothing. Nothing? He asked, puzzled. Yes. That's why I can take up the form of everything. We have no specific building blocks of the body. You saw your body fall but hadn't felt it initially. Everything?? Can you be everything?

Anything organic, to be specific. Usually, people from your reality never come in contact with ours, but then, we live amongst you. The day drew on as they conversed, he interjecting a word or two to show he was following and she, talking like she was lecturing. How come we never come in contact with your reality, but you live in ours? Who were the soldiers fighting, or rather what war was going on?

I had almost forgotten, the few persons that had ever come in contact with our reality and were conscious of it, she continued, always tried to explain it to others, and humans like to think that anything that challenges what they already know is insanity; so they tagged such persons insane and avoided them. We were, however, wary that the persistence of such persons would draw some attention, so we took them away and made them a part of our society instead.

As for the war, it was something from your head, maybe something you read or watched. Will I ever be the same again? He asked, doubting himself if he believed everything she had just said or not. You will; you only know something a lot of people don't. Can I write about it? He asked. So you're a writer, she asked, tilting her head slightly.
