Page Five. Tommy. 

Tommy’s stomach growled again, reminding him that he skipped his dinner. He looked through the window and it already was getting dark. Of course, it was only 6:10 p.m., but it also was November. Tommy wasn’t afraid to go outside alone, when it was dark. He was one of those lost souls on the streets, even though he had some money hidden under the wooden floor, but inside he was as empty, so he never was assaulted. Usually he had ten-dollar bill on him for his dinner (and leftovers for his lunch), but tonight he grabbed twenty. Tonight, he felt different, so while he was walking on the street, to reach the “downtown”, he rushed. Tonight, he felt like he didn’t belong to these dark streets with suspicious individuals here…

Page Four. When Chaos knocks on your door.

Pages flew fast under Tommy’s fingers. Stories and notes here and there, some very short, some pretty long. He didn’t care about those right now. He looked for a specific story, until he finally found it. I can’t believe that we made it! I am here, in the freaking Linnbrook! I feel like I grew up so fast, I am on my own now, I am an adult and I have a family! Who knew that that morning at the coffee-shop and small talk with a random stranger will lead to this?! And now I am at his house. It is so much bigger than my old apartment: huge living room, huge kitchen, “office”, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Interior has light beige walls and dark wooden frames everywhere. A…

Tommy. Page Four.

Morning began as usual: quiet room, because everyone was asleep after drinking night or at work already. Outside of his room, Tommy smelled cigarettes and something that reminded about dirty socks, but he got used to this smell. Tommy came to work fifteen minutes before his official shift and played some game on his cell phone. He had mixed feelings about the diary and tried not to think about it anymore. Should he really bother? His tiny dark shell felt threatened. He didn’t like to get involved with all this action, mystery, possible communication with people. He liked his books, games and circle of people, kept to a very minimum. He liked his room at work, where he could just tinker and repair. Machine parts here and there on the…

Page three. First love

Oh my God, I was never so happy in my life! Now everything will be so different, now everything will be so amazing! His lips and hands… it all felt so magical, like in a fairy tale… I feel like I can fly! I can’t believe that I lost my head like that, but it is the best feeling ever! He said that we should move in together, he wants to take me to his house in Linnbrook! It must mean that he is serious, so from now on I will be the happiest girl ever! My girlfriends will be so jealous when I will tell them! But what I won’t tell them is about our night together. I can share this only with the papers of my diary, I don’t want to forget…

Tommy. First Page

That was what Tommy saw on the last page of a dirty diary. Tommy didn’t have the luxuries of a good life. His mom ran away with a rock band musician when he was 10 years old. One morning he heard a noise and his dad’s scream, “Lora? Lora!”. Little Tommy sat up in his bed and looked through the window with his sleepy eyes. His mother, Lora, was at the car, opening its door in a rush, throwing in her bag on the back seat and jumping in right after. The car looked small and rusty, but it got away very fast so his dad couldn’t catch up. Tommy remembered that his dad, David Blackmoore, was just standing there on the street in his robe, looking at the corner…
