Alright. I just remembered a scene that you wrote in oculus about how Craig was buried alive? Well, I was thinking it over, and, does Craig have his fingers shredded to the bone possibly because he was trying to claw his way out of the trunk? Like, I've heard cases that people in the past would get buried alive and grave robbers would see scratch marks and stuff, but it just won't leave my mind. Anyways, it was just a random question. Also, I absolutely love your story. 💖💖💖

“His bandages became warm with blood as he ripped another chunk out of the lid. Then another, and another. There were scratches in the broken pieces. They were deep enough for Tweek to feel on the underside, as if a wild animal tried to scrape its way out.”

Yup, that’s exactly what this paragraph from chapter 20 is trying to convey! You’re right on the nose ;) and thank you!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
