Deja Vu...All Over Again

Ihad a few hours left on my shift at the store. The daily trading had come to a mind numbing crawl. Inoticed my younger brother and our grandfather walking across the parking lot. They came into the store and my brother said, "Hey Roman! We were out ona drive and thought we'd drop by and see you." Isaid, "Right on. My day is crawling by. It's good to see you two." Ibegan showing them around the store. After about five minutes, we concluded our tour at the large plate glass windowin the front of the store. We weretalking about nothing important when I saw awhite van pull up in front of the store. Istopped talking. The van lookedvery familiar. I couldn't place it though. The hair on my neck stood up.I thought, "What is going on?"A short guygot out of the driver's side door of the van and sprinted away. The deja vu moment hit me like a freight train. Iexclaimed, "GET DOWN!" Idove at my elderly grandfather and pushed him behind a counter. My brother dove to the ground. The piercing blast and heat felt likemy head was pushed into ajet engine. I yelled but no sound came out. Then Ifelt it.

A piece of the glass shrapnel stuck in my neck. The pain was horrific. Iinstinctively grabbed at the embedded object and yanked it out. That was a mistake. It had nicked the carotid artery. The blood began to spew profusely. My brother grabbed a rag and wrapped it around my neck. Istuffed paper towels all around it. The blood was quickly soaking through. My brother wailed, "We have to get you to the hospital. NOW!" Inodded and said, "First Ihave to send out an email." He looked puzzled and cried, "You're delirious man. You have to go now! Your jaw is cut all to hell too." I touched my face. Icould feel the long gash on my jaw line and the two flaps of skin hanging down. Ilooked at him and said, "Iknow this sounds crazy, but I have too. I think Iknow who did this." Ilimped to the back of the store. The computer room seemed to be in order. The computers were all re-booting. The blast must have downed the electric for a minute.

I got on the first computer to boot completely up. Isigned on to my e-mail. It was difficult because the keyboard wasn't working right. Only certain keys were working. Istarted typing the email. I was missing "R's" and "E's" and "C's". Ityped anyway. After getting the message mostly typed, I was in the process of switching out the keyboard. Iwas very light headed. Things were starting to spin. My brother leaned over and asked, "Who's hali?" I said, "Oh he was a friend. Ithink he may have done this. Let me finish putting in all the letters." Then my brother exclaimed, "Oh shit! You think Charlie did this? Ijust saw him yesterday. He seemed fine." Ishook my head, "He's not fine, and I think Ibetter get to the hospital..." I hit the send button, and my brother helped me out of the store. Iglanced in a mirror on the way out. The rag was crimson with my blood, my jaw was hanging open like loose meat, and my ear was all bloody. Ican't wait to see Charlie...

BTW, this was (for the most part) a dream I had a few nights ago. It was quite disturbing. So I figured what better way to express it than in a Roman vs. Charlie blog. Goddamn cereal before bed, right Sparks?
